Jets players complain about Marshawn Lynch's 'demoralizing' sideline dance during blowout loss

Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch is just two games into his NFL comeback and has already reestablished himself as one of the league's most polarizing characters.

As time ran was running out in the Raiders' 45-20 victory over the New York Jets, Lynch decided he was in the mood to have a bit of fun on the sideline. When "Oakland" by Vell came blaring over the Oakland Coliseum loudspeakers, the five-time Pro Bowler immediately got to his feet and treated fans to one of the most hilariously enthusiastic dance performances of the season.

Take a look at the dance for yourself:

Lynch's slick moves were a big hit with the home crowd, but those on the opposite sideline had a different reaction. Several Jets players hit back at Lynch after the game, taking the Oakland native's carefree decision as a sign of disrespect.

"It irks my ever-living nerves," said linebacker Jordan Jenkins, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN. "When I saw it happening, it was infuriating....That pissed me off. I'm an old-school guy. I don't like when things like that happen. That was embarrassing, losing like that and having Marshawn dance like that. Great player, but seeing that happen, that should infuriate the whole team."

While many Jets expressed frustration over the incident, it seems to have galvanized them heading into this coming Sunday's matchup against the Miami Dolphins.

"It's their house – they can do whatever they wants – but as a competitor, as a defender, you don't like to see that type of stuff," said linebacker Darron Lee. "It's demoralizing, but we have to bow up and keep fighting."

Lynch, playing his first season for Oakland after a one-year retirement in 2016, had 13 touches and 49 yards from scrimmage in the game. He was one of four different Raiders to find the end zone, scoring via a goal line rush near the end of the second quarter.

While the Raiders are undefeated, the Jets are still on the hunt for their first win of the season. Their showdown with the Dolphins is set for Sunday at 1 p.m.
