(NEW YORK) — The New York Jets will look to snap a three-game losing skid on Sunday when they host the Oakland Raiders at MetLife Stadium.
Jets quarterback Geno Smith will get the call again, despite his rookie struggles this season.
“I definitely feel the sense of urgency,” Smith said. “I’ve got to go out there and play hard and get the job done, I’ve been saying that every week, nothing has changed.”
Jets head coach Rex Ryan has faith that Smith will get the job done on Sunday. “I believe in Geno,” Ryan said. “I think he has the tools to be a good quarterback in this league.”
Matt McGloin will get the start for Oakland, who is looking to snap a 12-game Eastern Time zone losing streak.
“That statistic isn’t something we’re proud of,” McGloin said of the tough luck. “For me it’s exciting to go back East, I grew up two hours from that stadium. To play in the cold weather it’s going to be a nice change for me.”
