Titans Steamroll Raiders in Pursuit of AFC South Crown


The Tennessee Titans were in Oakland on Sunday for a bout with the Raiders, just the second to last game in Oakland. Both teams came in still very much alive in the playoff hunt.

The Titans got the ball first and they were putting together a solid drive until a Ryan Tannehill pass was tipped at the line and intercepted. On just three plays, the Raiders cashed in as Deandre Washington scored from 14 yards out. Raiders 7-0

The Titans responded with an eight-play, 74-yard drive that culminated with Derrick Henry scoring on a 12-yard run. Tied 7-7


The Titans forced a punt and took over at their own nine-yard line. Tannehill would find A.J. Brown on a deep shot as the rookie broke a tackle and took it 91 yards for a touchdown. Titans 14-7

The Raiders would answer when Derek Carr found Rico Gafford for a 49-yard touchdown strike. Tied at 14


Tennessee jumped back in front when Tannehill found Brown again, this time from 16 yards out. Titans 21-14

Carr and the Raiders put together a solid 14-play, 71-yard drive that culminated with Carr finding Foster Moreau for a one-yard touchdown. Tied at 21

Ryan Succop missed on a 42-yard field goal attempt as the first half came to an end

The Titans’ second drive of the second half ended with Derrick Henry scoring his second touchdown of the game, this time from 10 yards out. Titans 28-21


The Raiders would go three and out. When the Titans got the ball back, Ryan Tannehill engineered a nine-play, 84-yard drive, finding Jonnu Smith from 17 yards out. Titans 35-21

Titans linebacker Jayon Brown would return a fumble for a touchdown on the third play of Oakland’s ensuing drive. Neither team would score again. Titans 42-21 (Final)




  • Ryan Tannehill is definitely a competitor


Aside from commanding the offense, the guy can tackle. On his interception, he tracked down the returner and took an angle that led to a great tackle.


  • They epitomize team effort


This team again proved they can find different ways to win. Tannehill’s arm, Henry’s powerful running, and a strong defense proves this team is running on all cylinders at just the right time.


  • Hitting his stride


After a few explosive plays early in the season, rookie A.J. Brown again showed his explosiveness. With Henry nursing a hamstring injury, Tennessee may rely more on Brown down the stretch. Of course, Henry will continue to compete if it’s up to him.



  • A nudge doesn’t work when you need a push


Jon Gruden’s team came out very flat in the second half. They definitely lacked the energy of a team still in the playoff hunt.


  • Jacobs is a critical piece


Rookie running back Josh Jacobs was inactive because of an injury and his absence was very visible.

  • Ripped to shreds

The defense offered very little resistance, especially in the passing game.

The Titans go home to take on the Texans as the winner will take over sole possession of first place in the AFC South. The Raiders host the Jaguars in what will be the final game in Oakland.
