This AFC matchup will see the Tennessee Titans take on the Oakland Raiders.
The last time these teams met was in 2017. This game resulted in a 26-16 win for the Raiders.
The Titans got a huge win in Indianapolis to remain in the hunt for the AFC playoffs. They beat the Colts in this game 31-17. The game was tied late in the fourth quarter, but a blocked field goal returned for a touchdown was the play that completely turned this game around. They then proceeded to score again to make the score look worse than it actually was.
Regardless, the Titans by no means had a great game offensively. They had just 292 total yards of offense. Derek Henry did the bulk of the work, picking up 149 yards on the ground. Ryan Tannehill throw for only 182 yards, but more importantly, he did not throw any interceptions. He did fumble once, so ball security still needs to be an emphasis.
The offense for the Titans remains top 10 in the NFL at running the ball. They need to lean on Henry to move the ball with Tannehill being more of a game manager.
The defense allowed 391 yards, but did a solid job of forcing turnovers. They picked off Brissett twice and forced one fumble.
Tennessee’s defense still struggles to defend the pass. ranking 27th in the league, but they are 11th in defending the run. They also just do a good job of limiting their opponents from reaching the end zone. Allowing just 19.5 points per game ranks 8th in the NFL.
What a disaster the game against the Chiefs was for this Oakland team. They pretty much have no chance of winning the division now and their playoff hopes are now becoming very slim. That makes this game a must win. Speaking of that game against the Chiefs, the Raiders are blown out 40-9. They did not even score until the fourth quarter and really never had a chance.
The offense which had played well for a couple of weeks prior to this game, did not show up past week. They did rack up a total of 332 yards of total offense, but you have to believe that a lot of these yards came in garbage time when the game had already been decided.
One positive was their running back, Josh Jacobs. He rushed for 104 yards on 17 carries and continues to show promise as a rookie. Oakland has the 11th best rushing attack in the NFL, so they will look to Jacobs once again to have a big game against the Titans.
There is also the fact that Derek Carr is starting to look poor behind center and he cannot be trusted right now to have a clean game with no turnovers.
The Oakland defense did not play as bad as the score would indicate. They held Mahomes to 175 yards passing and held the Chiefs to 259 yards of total offense.
The Raiders are the 12th best rushing defense in the league and that will be their key to slowing down Derek Henry and the Tennessee Titans.
NFL Betting Trends:
- Favorite is 9-2 ATS in their last 11 meetings.
- Under is 9-2-1 in OAK last 12 vs. AFC.
- Under is 12-3-1 in OAK last 16 games in December.
4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: UNDER 46.5
Both teams have had success running the ball and I think we will see both sides try to shorten this game.
I like the under to be the play in this game with the Titans also winning and covering on the road.
