Tennessee Titans vs. Las Vegas Raiders Prediction, Tips & Odds – September 25, 2022 19:00 CET
The Tennessee Titans and Las Vegas Raiders started this season with big ambitions, but both teams are 0-2 after two weeks.
The Tennessee Titans didn’t have a good start to new season. First, they were unexpectedly defeated by the New York Giants at home and then they experienced a real humiliation in Buffalo. Now, everyone expect a reaction and the true face of this team, which has been a regular playoff participant for several years.
Fortunately for the Titans, they are in the NFL weakest division. The Indianapolis Colts had a disastrous start, the Houston Texans are one of the worst teams in this league, while the Jacksonville Jaguars are in rebuilding mode. In such a competition, the Titans could win the division even with a 8-9 record, so there is still no room for panic. However, only few teams in the NFL history managed to qualify for the playoffs after 0-3 start, so this team will make a maximum effort to win on Sunday.
Against the Las Vegas Raiders, the Titans will have to get back to the basics. Their biggest strength is Derrick Henry and run game. That’s the only way they can find their true face and we should expect a large number of carries for the Titans running backs.
Las Vegas Raiders
After big scandal related to Jon Gruden, dark clouds hung over the Las Vegas Raiders last season. However, they managed to rise and reach the playoffs where they lost to the Cincinnati Bengals. Now, they hired Josh McDaniels as new head coach, which means that ambitions are very high.
In addition to McDaniels, Davante Adams was signed. He has been one of the best wide receivers in the league for several years, so the Raiders’ offense was expected to improve further. However, a big step forward was not seen since the Raiders lost to the Los Angeles Chargers and the Arizona Cardinals in previous two weeks. Last Sunday’s loss was especially painful because they led 23:7 against the Cardinals with ten minutes left in fourth quarter.
First of all, the Raiders need to recover mentally from the big blow last week. They have quality, but if they start this season with 0-3, it will be extremely difficult for them to reach the playoffs. The Raiders are in the NFL best division, plus they have a tough schedule ahead of them.
The last time these two teams played each other was three years ago. Then, the Tennesee Titans won 42:21 at road.
Jamarco Jones, Taylor Lewan, Bud Dupree and Ugo Amadi are injured and won’t play for the Tennessee Titans. Kyle Philips is questionable. The Las Vegas Raiders came to Nashville without Hunter Renfrow and Denzel Perryman.
Tennessee Titans vs. Las Vegas Raiders Prediction
The Raiders have a more talented team than the Titans this season, but a lot has changed and they have yet to make their mark. The Titans have been playing together for a long time, they know their system and they will be ready to turn things around in this game. At worst case scenario, they shouldn’t lose by more than three points.
