OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Derek Carr got a taste in the preseason of what the atmosphere will be like in the Oakland Coliseum when Marshawn Lynch carries the ball for the first time in a game that counts in front of his hometown fans.

He can only imagine what it will be like on Sunday the first time Beast Mode carries the ball or scores a touchdown for the Raiders (1-0) in their home opener against the New York Jets (0-1).

“Loud. Hopefully we’ll be able to be excited and then get quiet again real quick for the offense,” Carr said. “I love our fans and I’m happy that they have someone that’s homegrown that gets to play in front of them.”
