Raiders roll to 45-20 win over Jets

Raiders roll to 45-20 win over Jets”

He was rugged, and our team played really well.

When your fantasy player is going against the Jets, set it and forget it. He kicked four field goals, including two from 52 yards to become the first player in National Football League history with at least two 50-yard field goals in his debut. Bills running back LeSean McCoy rushed for 110 yards. Derek Carr, Oakland's second-round draft pick in 2014 and already a two-time Pro Bowler, inked a five-year contract extension in June.

Lynch and the Oakland Raiders will host the New York Jets on Sunday (1:05 p.m. PT/4:05 p.m. ET, CBS, DirecTV). This week, Lynch has an easy matchup against the Jets. Kearse led all of the offensive weapons with his 49 snaps on the 56 plays, and Josh McCown looked for him on shorter and longer routes.

Sunday, Patriots receiver Brandin Cooks travels to New Orleans face off against his former team.

The New York Jets wide receiver played at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum a couple of times while a member of the Seattle Seahawks, and there's one aspect about it that drives him insane. This week, with it being the home opener, coupled with his performance last week, he (we hope) will rectify that situation in a major way.

The costly penalties continued for the Raiders defense on their next drive.

Perhaps the most noticeable change is in the 100-yard hallway that stretches from the locker room to the business lobby, which once featured random shots of Jets fans rooting on their team from their stadium seats. BUT it's the preseason and the Jets.

Second-year safety Karl Joseph played a solid game as defensive coordinator Ken Norton, Jr. added him to a lot of blitz packages and it paid off. "It's definitely one I wish I could have back". Nor was there an issue with the game, nor with its effect upon a city that continues to refuse to show how much the potential departure of the Raiders will hurt.

Well, okay, we can go with that if you want to extend the border of Oakland to include everything down to the Fremont line, absolutely. Rodgers rushed for almost 500 yards on 116 carries in seven games last season. "We can't just have mistakes here and there". If executed effectively, the West Coast scheme will be a slow and methodical attack, one that will keep the Raiders offense on the sidelines for extended periods of time. Can't turn the ball over in your territory right before the half. It sucks being on the losing end of it.

Lynch finished with 45 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries. The teams are 2-2 against each other in the postseason, with the last playoff game coming in the 2003 divisional round, a 30-10 Oakland win in which Jerry Rice caught a touchdown pass for the Raiders.

"He had a good week of practice so yeah, we're going to have Gareon up", Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said Friday of the rookie cornerback.

The sky is falling in Indy and things will get worse before they get better, at least for Frank Gore owners that is.

Lynch isn't the only AFC West running back that loves Skittles.
