After watching the Oakland Raiders get blown out in their first two trips back East this season, coach Tom Cable decided to switch things up this week.

With another early start slated for Sunday at Jacksonville, the Raiders moved up their schedule to get acclimated. Meetings started at 6:25 a.m. -- an hour earlier than usual -- and practice began about three hours early at 9:45 a.m.

That's all part of the plan to get the Raiders' minds and bodies ready for a game Sunday that starts at 10 a.m. Pacific time.

Cable has not done this before in his two-plus years as Raiders coach but decided to change up after the Raiders were outscored 73-16 in the losses at Tennessee and Pittsburgh.
