Sunday on the west coast brings us a match up between two 4-6 teams when the Tennessee Titans head out to Oakland to take on the Raiders is an AFC West-AFC South clash.
Because of an injury to starting QB Terrelle Pryor, undrafted free agent Matt McGloin out of Penn State got the start under center for the Raiders last week against the Texans, and they were victorious after dropping the previous two. McGloin was stellar in his first ever NFL start, throwing for 197 yards and three touchdowns. He’ll get another crack at it this week against Tennessee.
Tennessee comes in losers of five of their last six, including two tight ones the last two weeks against Colts and Jaguars. Ryan Fitzpatrick is still settling in to the job under center for the Titans as they try to navigate their way through what looks to be another disappointing campaign.
Date: Nov. 24
Start Time: 4:05pm ET
Location: Oakland, CA
Stadium: Oakland Coliseum
TV Info: CBS
Odds: Pick ‘em
Prediction: Matt McGloin, as with anything he’s done back to his Penn State days, just seems to be the answer when no one else thought he could be. The Titans, on the other hand, are just struggling in virtually all phases of the game at this point. This win right here may make McGloin the permanent starter in Oakland.
Raiders 28, Titans 20
