@ OAKLAND RAIDERS
This game has “trap” written all over it. The Titans are on a red-hot 5-1 stretch, which includes wins over the Chargers, Chiefs, and Colts. The Chargers may not be good, but considering the Titans’ past versus the Chargers, that was a big “monkey off our backs” win.
We all know how huge the Colts win was. The Titans have rarely won in Indianapolis.
The Titans of old would enter this Raiders contest, lose in some really uninspiring fashion, and remind their fans why you should never have faith in this team.
However, this isn’t the Titans of old. This is a new team led by a hungry Ryan Tannehill and being carried by their behemoth of a king Derrick Henry.
Both running backs enter into this game top five in the NFL in rushing. Henry ranks third in the NFL with 1,140 yards, and Jacobs comes in not too far behind at five with 1,061.
Both defenses will be tested when it comes to defending the run, and it’s safe to say the better running back will put their team in the win column.
Titans will go into the game the better team, and the offense will continue to score points thanks to Derrick Henry’s hot streak. Sounds obvious, but remember when that was hard to come by?
FINAL SCORE: TENNESSEE 33 OAKLAND 17
