Las Vegas Raiders vs. New York Jets Preview and Predictions 11-24-2019

Oakland has won three in a row - all at home - against teams with a combined record of 7-23-1, and it has just one remaining opponent with a winning mark entering Week 12, that being the Kansas City Chiefs, whom the Raiders trail by a half-game in the AFC West. Oakland's latest triumph, a 17-10 victory over the winless Cincinnati Bengals, left something to be desired and there's a sense that a cross-country trip to take on an improving Jets team will be a big challenge. "They're all physical, they play nasty," Raiders quarterback Derek Carr told reporters of the Jets, winners of two straight. "A very good group and a very good team too. People talk about records and those kinds of things. Pump the brakes a little bit. They were without their quarterback for awhile. They're just getting healthy and you're seeing what they're able to do when they're all out there together." New York is coming off a 34-17 win at Washington last week.

ABOUT THE RAIDERS (6-4): Defensive end Maxx Crosby is one of several rookies making a big impact with Oakland, and he earned AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors after recording four sacks versus Cincinnati. "It's just a start," Crosby told reporters. "It's awesome to get awards and all that stuff but we're in the midst of trying to get in the playoffs. That's what's most important right now and we're going to stay focused." Carr is completing 72.5 percent of his passes with four touchdowns and one interception during the winning streak.

ABOUT THE JETS (3-7): Quarterback Sam Darnold threw for 293 yards and a career-high four TDs at Washington in perhaps his best game since returning from mononucleosis. The star on the other side of the football is safety Jamal Adams, who had three sacks against the Redskins and has six on the season, leaving him two shy of the NFL record for a defensive back. "If you're asking, am I going to beat the record? Yes, I will beat the record," Adams told reporters this week. "That's something I will get."

EXTRA POINTS

1. Jets RB Le'Veon Bell has scored a rushing TD in each of the last two games after producing just one over his first eight contests.

2. Raiders TE Darren Waller ranks second in the NFL at his position with 666 receiving yards.

3. Oakland took the last two meetings, including a 45-20 rout in 2017 in which Carr threw for three TDs.
