NFL  > General NFL  > Raiders vs Jets: Who you got?
December 6, 2013, 10:01 PM
The Oakland Raiders travel to MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey to face off against the host New York Jets on Sunday in an early game. It???s their second visit there this season, they faced off and lost to the New York Giants, 24-20 on November 10th.

Oakland is coming into the game with a less than gaudy 4-8 record and coming off a 31-24 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving. New York is 5-7 and they lost to Miami, 23-3 last week. They have not scored a touchdown in their last two games (mustering just a field goal in both contests) and are averaging 6.7 points per game during their three game losing streak.

The Raiders have had trouble in recent years traveling to the East Coast, they have 12-game losing streak in games played in the Eastern time zone.

???I think we understand the challenge that???s set forth in front of us,??? Head Coach Dennis Allen told Raiders.com. ???We have to go travel to the Eastern Time zone and try to win a football game. Our guys understand that and they???re prepared for that and ready for that. It???ll be a tough football game.???

Head coach Dennis Allen doesn???t expect this to be an easy game for the road warriors.

???This is a team that that???s obviously played really well on defense,??? Allen told Raiders.com. ???Their catalyst for their defense is really their front seven. They do a great job of stopping the run. They???re able to get after the passer. They have a multitude of looks that they have on defense that create some challenges for us offensively. Offensively, it???s a football that they???re 10th in the league in rushing the football, so obviously it???ll start there. We???re going to have to be able to stop the run defensively and be able to get off the field on 3rd down. That???ll be crucial for us. We have to do some things in the kicking game to try to win the field position. They???ve got a good football team and it???ll be a challenge for us.???
