Jets linebacker Bart Scott, continuing the Jets’ long list of excuse-making, on a primary reason for why the Jets lost their Week 3 matchup against the Raiders in Oakland: “We usually feel good about how we travel to the West Coast, but I think collectively as a group it was just one of those weird days when you didn’t know what time to eat, what was the best time to eat.”
