After a week one loss, the Jets were looking to get in the win column against the Oakland Raiders at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum. Josh McCown got the start at quarterback, while Bryce Petty was the backup and Christian Hackenberg was inactive. After a 45-20 loss, this year’s Jets team is now the second since 2007 to lose their first two games of the season. Here’s the good, the bad and the ugly…
