OUR PREDICTION: As I often mention in my college football predictions, I like to take underdogs that I know are at least going to be competitive. That doesn't describe the Jets, however. They have zero redeeming qualities and will be in the running for next year's No. 1 pick throughout all of 2017. The Raiders are at home, seemingly have an improved defense, and a new-look running game thanks to Marshawn Lynch. This should be a bloodbath today in Oakland.
