Titans vs. Raiders Prediction
Oakland Coliseum, Oakland
Written by David Hess
National Football League action on Sunday afternoon and a pair of playoff-hopeful teams will square off as the Tennessee Titans grapple with the Oakland Raiders at RingCentral Coliseum in Oakland, California. These teams last met back in 2017 and the Raiders won that game on the road by a score of 26-16. The Titans enter this game at 7-5 while the Raiders are at 6-6.
The Tennessee Titans have been on a roll of late and they have turned it around thanks to Ryan Tannehill taking over at QB. The journeyman quarterback has gone 5-1 since taking over as the signal-caller and the Titans have won three games in a row to pull within a game of Houston for first place in the AFC South. In their last game, they grabbed a huge win over the Indianapolis Colts on the road by a score of 31-17. Can the Titans keep up their strong play of late? We shall see.
The Oakland Raiders are fighting for a playoff spot but they were dealt a serious blow to their chances after losing 40-9 to the Chiefs on the road. The Raiders are now at 6-6 on the year and two games behind the Chiefs in the AFC West standings. They are actually three games behind because the Chiefs swept them in the regular season. That means, if the teams tie, then KC would win the division on a tiebreaker. The Raiders have been outscored 74-12 in their last two games but both were on the road. Oakland has gone 4-1 here at home. Can the Raiders keep their playoff hopes alive with an upset win over the Titans? You'll have to check back to find out.
