Raiders Week 2 Preview & Things to Know

Raiders Week 2 Preview & Things to Know

Marshawn Lynch's Oakland homecoming turned into a dance party. 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).

As ugly as the final score was, there was a moment in the first half when it felt like the Jets might make this a game after cutting a 14-0 deficit to 14-10 in the second quarter.

Marshawn Lynch will star in his own reality show, but the running back hasn't forgotten about his day job.

Last week against Buffalo, New York gave up 190 rushing yards, including 110 to LeSean McCoy.

Michael Crabtree is considered the Raiders No. 2 wide receiver, but he played second-fiddle to nobody on Sunday.

Of course it was quarterback Derek Carr that led the way as usual. Unfortunately for the Jets, there were still almost 13 minutes remaining in Sunday's 45-20 loss to the Raiders. Alas, McCown could be hard-pressed to avoid those turnovers this week, as the Raiders have a front line led by Khalil Mack just aching for some sacks after they were largely held in check by Tennessee's front five. In 2016, he almost passed for 4,000 yards and 28 touchdowns with only six interceptions.

The Buccaneers take on the Chicago Bears at home this Sunday in what will be Tampa's first game of the season after their opener was postponed.

Crabtree matched his career high with three touchdown catches, including two near the goal line, where with his strength he is a hard matchup for any defense. However, a few penalties proved costly for Oakland.

PLAYER SPOTLIGHT: Jets RBs Matt Forte and Bilal Powell.

NY responded with a 10-play, 75-yard scoring drive that ended with McCown's 11-yard touchdown pass to Kearse, but the damage had already been done.

A Chandler Catanzaro field goal made it 21-13 early in the third quarter, then things got out of control.

McCown fumbled away the ball when he was sacked by cornerback Karl Joseph deep in Jets territory. These Raiders are led by Carr, but they are fueled by Lynch, the All-Pro back who ended his one-year sabbatical to sign with the National Football League team from his neighborhood. Oakland held Marcus Mariota and the Titans in check for most of the game, but especially in the second half.

And it is why Jack Del Rio, the coach who stands rigidly for the anthem while Lynch sits ands believes that body language matters in this business, said when asked about Lynch's dance, "These are his people". It was a nice effort gone awry during the second half, here's what went wrong for Gang Green as it fell to 0-2. Jalen Richard bolted up the middle for a 52-yard TD. The Chiefs picked up where they left off a year ago, allowing just four touchdowns and 738 yards to tight ends through 16 games. Carr found him for the 1-yard touchdown in the end zone making it a 42-13 game. If Lynch is able to have similar success on the ground Sunday, it could be another long day for New York's defense.
