OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Marshawn Lynch provided the early touchdown, the dance moves and the inspiration for the crowd in celebratory home opener in Oakland.

He got plenty of help in an almost flawless offensive performance for the Raiders, who also got three touchdown passes from Derek Carr to Michael Crabtree and long touchdown runs from Cordarrelle Patterson and Jalen Richard in a 45-20 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday.

The Raiders (2-0) gained 410 yards, scored on seven of 10 possessions and didn’t commit a turnover, allow a sack or a quarterback hit in a thorough beating of the struggling Jets (0-2).
