Playbook Picks: Can Jets rebound in Oakland?

Playbook analyst Brian Baldinger may have made the lamentable choice of picking the Titans to upset the Patriots in Week 6, but he made up for it by being the only one to predict the Vikings would upend the Ravens. Mr. Limb, meet Mr. Baldinger.

One of the interesting storylines this week involves the Raiders and Jets. After a solid start to the season, Oakland was outscored 96-16 in Weeks 3-5, before rebounding with a stunning win over the Eagles on Sunday. The Jets, meanwhile have lost three in a row after starting 3-0. So will the Raiders keep the Jets reeling? Well, Sterling Sharpe and Joe Theismann think so, but Baldinger likes New York to rebound.
