Check engine light ok

Hey guys I have an 02 wrangler x with 77k miles. While driving home last night my check engine light came on. So I took it to autozone and they scanned it and it came back for bad 02 sensors (p0161). Should I replace Both or just one and is this a common problem in jeeps? Also would it be safe to drive to work until I get a chance to swap em this weekend?

For starters, P0161 is not for bad O2 sensors; it's for sensor 2/bank 2. Secondly, the issue is not necessarily with the sensor itself.

A failed O2 sensor won't make driving to work any less safe than it is already.
