The NFL season is finally here! Who’s ready for some football in Tennessee?
The Oakland Raiders and Tennessee Titans will kick off their hopeful playoff bound season Sunday at Nissan Stadium.
For Oakland, they are looking to regroup after last seasons short playoff run. The Raiders had all the pieces together, but quarterback Derek Carr suffered a season ending injury.
With Carr healthy once again, watch out for those Raiders. On the Titans side, they are looking to improve their nine win season as they are potential dark horses for the 2017 season.
Derek Carr vs Marcus Mariota, who you got?
The Oakland Raiders are coming off an impressive 12-win season that showcased their star quarterback Derek Carr. With a healthy team and new additions toward the offensive and defensive side of the ball, expect the Raiders to be dark horses to win it all.
That’s right Oakland, how does a Super Bowl win sound?
Let’s start with the explosive offense. With Carr, Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree, Marshawn Lynch, the Raiders have one of the best offenses in the league.
With the huge addition in Lynch, they will be adding a physical and ‘beast’ runner in the backfield.
However the question is whether or not Lynch has enough in the tank? With only wanting to play for the Oakland Raiders, expect him to energize the crowd and use every last drop left in the tank.
Enough of the offense, let’s take a look at the powerful defense that is taking the NFL by storm. Led by captain Khalil Mack, he’s surrounded by Bruce Irvin and Karl Joseph who are finally getting the respect they deserve.
Oakland still has a huge hole in linebacker depth but let’s hope for improvement as they ranked 20th in points and 26th in total yards.
As Oakland hits the road to start this season, they were excellent on the road in 2015-16 as they won seven of the past 10 games on the road.
The franchise that is turning it around. Meet the new and improved Tennessee Titans.
Last year the Titans were quietly one of the best teams in the AFC, however last second defeats and poor play calling left them out of the playoffs. With winning nine games last year, expect the goal to win more than ten this season.
One of the reasons why the Titans are a team to be scared of is from their new offense. With the talent of quarterback Marcus Mariota, he’s finally developed into a well trusted leader in the NFL. Expect Mariota to take full charge of this offense.
He’s going to developed even more this season due to his new weapons. Welcome Corey Davis and Eric Decker who will be changing the offense for good. With ranking 14th in the NFL in points scored, expect the Titans to soar into the Top 10, if everything goes right.
The improvement toward the receiving core is a plus, but their running back duo of DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry is one of the best in the league.
Last year the duo combined for over 1,700 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns. Defensive, be warned.
Speaking of defense, the Titans have two stars who will be helping their playoff run. Derrick Morgan and Brian Orakpo with secondary help of Logan Ryan, Johnathan Cyprien with rookie Adoree Jackson will improve the season for sure.
Last year, the Titans ranked 20th in total yards allowed and 17th in points per game.
