Jets quarterback Josh McCown talks about how the offense might be more aggressive in Sunday’s Week 2 game against the Raiders. McCown spoke on Wednesday, Sep. 13, 2017, in Florham Park.
FLORHAM PARK — The Jets offense was ineffective in Sunday’s Week 1 loss to the Bills.
It was also kind of boring.
The Jets threw plenty of dump-off passes to running backs in the flat, and a bunch of quick hits to receivers in the flat. Not exactly exhilarating stuff.
But the Jets will try to change things for Sunday’s game in Oakland, where the plan is to be more aggressive on offense against the Raiders.
“We’re definitely going to try to be,” Jets coach Todd Bowles said Wednesday after practice.
The Jets likely won’t have a choice. Oakland has one of the better offenses in football, and the Jets are coming off a defensive debacle in Buffalo. Even if the defense gets it together somehow this week, the Raiders are likely going to score points. And so the Jets will have to find a way to score as well.
“We understand that they have a good quarterback over there and they’re going to score points. That’s what they do,” Jets quarterback Josh McCown said. “I know our defense is going to do everything they can to hold them and shut them down.
“But you also understand that [us scoring a lot] may need to be the case. That’s part of being a balanced team, is that if we need to rely on taking more chances and pushing the ball we can do that. So we look forward to that part of it.”
