Kick off is set for 1:00 PM ET with QB Derek Carr getting the start for the Raiders with Marcus Mariota opposing him.
Derek Carr has started off the season with 2 strong performances. This week he faces a Titans defense that kept Matthew Stafford in check last week. With the weapons Carr has at his disposal I expect him to have another big game and throw for 2 TDs.
Latavius Murray had over 100 total yards and a score last week against the Falcons, and I look for him to be a threat both running and catching the ball this week.
He should reach the end zone twice and move the chains on key 3rd down plays.
Amari Cooper and Clive Walford both had good games against the Falcons D. I expect Cooper to have a 5 catch, 100-yard performance. Walford is a red zone threat and should be able to use his size and speed to grab a key touchdown early in the game.
The Raiders defense needs to play much better this week, as Julio Jones carved them up for over 100 receiving yards and a score.
The running defense will also need to step up as they had a tough time stopping Devonta Freeman last week.
Marcus Mariota has had a solid start to the season, but I look for this to be his breakout game. He should be able to use his running ability to scramble for yards on key 2nd and 3rd downs.
My big question is why haven’t the Titans used Derrick Henry more?
He only has 14 carries through 2 games but should be a change of pace back when spelling Murray. If he can get 10 carries this week expect him to reach the end zone.
Demarco Murray has seen a resurgence in Tennessee, after wasting away in Philly last season.
He looks like the MVP candidate used by the Cowboys in 2014, and this game he should have no trouble getting over 150 total yards and a couple of scores.
Delanie Walker is the safety net for Mariota, so look for him in the red zone area. He should continue his TD streak and get another one against the Raiders.
The Titans defense has started off the season really well. They face one of the best young receivers in the game in Amari Cooper, and I expect the secondary to be up to the challenge.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Titans not ATS, Under
This will be a tight game all night. The key factor will be how much damage Demarco Murray and Derrick Henry can do on the ground.
If the Titans can reach the 30+ carry mark, I expect them to win by a point.
NFL Free Score Prediction: Tennessee 21 – Oakland 20
The Titans ground game controls the time of possession. Mariota doesn’t make the big mistake and the Titans get a hard fought victory.
