The Raiders' injury level has not been quite as high as say the Kansas City Chiefs, but they have had a slew of injuries themselves.
Tight end Kevin Boss was brought in to replace Zach Miller but hasn't played yet because of a knee injury. Boss was questionable in Week 2, but he should make his debut in front of the home crowd in Week 3.
Boss will help the Raiders out both through the air and on the ground.
In Week 2, the Raiders were without receivers Darrius Heyward-Bey, Jacoby Ford and Louis Murphy. This allowed rookie Denarius Moore to have a breakout game with five catches for 146 yards and a touchdown.
If the Raiders can get at least Boss and Heyward-Bey back, they will be in a good spot to take advantage of an under-performing Jets defense.
The Jets have allowed 208.5 passing yards in 2011, which is good for 11th in the NFL. Whoever Darrelle Revis covers will be shutdown, but other than that, the field will have some holes.
