Tennessee Titans vs Oakland Raiders 12/08/2019
The Tennessee Titans attempted to overpower the Indianapolis Colts and succeeded. They ended up with a 31-17 endgame score. QB Ryan Tannehill was going for 17/22 with 182 air yards. His determination bore fruit, as evidenced by his 2 thrown TDs. Derrick Henry wouldn’t let him have all the glory though. He clutched the ball for an amazing 26 times and extended team territory by 149 yards. The icing on the cake, however, was a rushing TD. The receivers’ end was held up by A.J. Brown. He had 3 receptions pegged at 45 yards.
The Titans resorted to rush attacks for 30 out of 58 plays. Their clear proficiency for runs is evident in the score. In the tale of the yards, the Titans earned 292 yards as opposed to their opponents’ 391 yards. This is a surprising stat, as most people assume that the yardage gain gap should skew the game in favor of the superior team. However, the Titans proved this wrong.
The Titans were average in defense. They allowed enemy completion rate of 63% on throws, while they let 24 rush attempts slip through the defense. The Titans trusted in their scoring abilities to keep the opponents at bay- and it did.

The Raiders were trampled by their previous opponent, the Kansas City Chiefs. They collapsed with a 40-9 endgame score. QB Derek Carr still put up a valiant fight, going for 20/30 with 222 air yards. He connected a thrown TD plus 2 picks. Josh Jacobs was the master rusher. He did 17 carries across 104 yards. Darren Waller was the top receiver with an impressive 7 catches. He extended the team’s territory by 100 yards.
Oakland gained a total of 332 yards as opposed to their opponent’s 259. Despite their advantage in the territory, the Raiders weren’t able to prioritize scoring. Their defense wasn’t that good either. Even though they held down the opponent to a mere 52% throw completion rate, their defensive line didn’t know how to counter the opponent’s 28 rush attacks.
The Raiders better come up with a more solid game plan if they want to reap more wins as the season winds down.
