The Jets came out for pregame warmups Sunday morning at MetLife Stadium and were welcomed with heavy boos from visiting Raiders fans, and that did not sit too well with the players set to suit up in Jet Green.
"I'm not going to lie to you, when we came onto the field, we felt disrespected," Jamal Adams said after the win. "We got booed in our own home stadium by the Oakland fans. We came back into this locker room. It was a hell of a talk. It was something that needed to be said."
"I'm not going to get into what was said, but we felt disrespected. I came in here and sparked it up."
Well, whatever was said in that locker room prior to kickoff sparked arguably the most collective performance of the season by the the Jets, as they defeated the Raiders handedly 34-3.
"Put up or shut up," Adams said when describing his team's mindset coming out of the locker room. "I don't want to sound arrogant or cocky, but [the Oakland fans] came in a little too happy, let's put it like that. They thought it would be easy, put it like that."
The Jets have been used to seeing many visiting fans attend their home games this season, specifically when they faced the Cowboys--"America's Team" and the Giants--who share the stadium with the Jets.
And yet, including this Sunday's matchup, the Jets are 3-0 in those games.
