Raiders’ Season to Date

Jets vs. Raiders Recent History – First Meeting Since 2017

Playing at home, Oakland posted blowout wins over the Jets during the last two meetings. The first was a 34-20 win in 2015, prior to a 45-20 victory in 2017. The Raiders visit New York for the first time since 2014 when they lost 19-14. While both teams have had major personnel turnover, Carr started in all three games.

Raiders vs. Jets Final Thoughts and Pick

One of the healthier teams in the league, the Raiders avoided any key player injuries versus the Bengals. Both rookies, Jacobs posted 100+ rushing yards for the fourth time in six weeks while DE Maxx Crosby recorded four sacks last game. Jacobs faces a tough matchup against the Jets’ top-ranked run defense that is allowing 79.1 YPG.

New York is a home dog for the fourth time this season. The Jets lost and didn’t cover against the Patriots and Browns, but won outright versus the Cowboys and Giants. Crowder and Griffin have both stepped up their game recently. Solid in two games back from injury, the Jets may be without stud LT Kelvin Beachum again.

Pick: Jets +2.5

Season Record: 6-20
