Things To Look For

It’s hard to imagine that this Jets’ team can keep pace with the talented Silver and Black. This is an Oakland team that looks more equipped for the long haul this season, especially with RB Marshawn Lynch in the backfield. We saw the New York defense allow 190 yards rushing in last week’s loss at Buffalo. And while Jack Del Rio’s defense is still suspect, Todd Bowles’ team doesn’t have the firepower to take advantage.
