On paper, this should be a game that the Titans win without much trouble.
A resurgent Tennessee Titans team has won five of their last six, including a 31-17 win last week against the Colts. The Raiders, on the other hand, are coming off of two straight blowout losses to the Chiefs last week, and the Jets the week before.
Despite injuries keeping a lot of talented players for Tennessee on the sidelines this week, the Titans should be able to cruise to an easy win with the players they will have for this game.
Derrick Henry has been dominant since the team’s Week 10 win against the Kansas City Chiefs, and despite being limited in practice for the second week in a row, the fourth year running back doesn’t look like he’s about to slow down.
Like he’s done the past three weeks, Henry should be able to run the ball at will against a Raiders defense that has struggled in recent weeks, giving up 40 points to the Chiefs last week and 34 to the Jets the week prior.
I would expect the Raiders to bounce back slightly from their one sided losses in prior weeks, but I don’t think Oakland will play well enough to get a win. I’m taking the Titans by double digits this week.
