The 2-0 New York Jets begin a stretch of three consecutive road games on Sunday (4:05 p.m. ET, CBS) when they face the Oakland Raiders. The Jets have a pair of home victories over Dallas and Jacksonville. The Raiders opened by defeating Denver, but then lost to the Buffalo Bills.
The Jets could be without Pro Bowl center Nick Mangold, who has a high ankle sprain and is "iffy" for the game.
The Jets primary task on defense will be to control the Oakland running game. Through the first two weeks the Raiders average 160.5 yards per game on the ground, fourth in the league.
