Things did not turn out well for the Raiders at Coliseum Sunday afternoon.  Leading 19-16 with about 6 minutes to go, Oakland gave up a 14 play, 80-yard drive that culminated in the Titans game winning touchdown catch on a pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick to Kendall Wright with 15 seconds left to play.

Matt McGloin, declared the Raiders’ starting quarterback over the hobbled Terrelle Pryor earlier in the week, passed for 260 yards on 19-of-32 passing with a touchdown and an interception.

In the Raiders last-second possession, McGloin completed a pass to Rashad Jennings, who then lateraled – which generally never turns out well – to Rod Streater who was subsequently hit high and fumbled, ending Oakland’s final desperation attempt.  Well, I guess he was more flung than “hit high”.

Check out the GIF below:

Ryan Fitzpatrick, filling in for the injured Jake Locker, performed well for Tennessee.  He ended up completing 30 of 42 passes for 320 yards and two touchdowns.  The backup QB threw two second half touchdown passes.  The first was a 54-yard strike to Justin Hunter to start the third and the second was the game winner to Wright that put the Titans up 23-19, which would end up being the final score.

Tennessee improved to 5-6 with the win and Oakland fell to 4-7.

    How on Earth they didn’t throw a flag for “Hitting a defenseless player”, or some sort of going for the head penalty, is beyond me. With how much they preach player safety, especially with the helmet/head area, and even more so when a Raider player even breathes in the vicinity of a QB….it’s a penalty. Same old same ol’. I am sure it wouldn’t have affected the outcome of the game, but since it cannot end on a defensive penalty, and would have given them another 15 yards from the spot of the foul, at least they would have had a better shot at a last second play. They (Commentators) also made a huge deal of the Titans “Several” holding calls. What about all of the NON-calls? There were easily another 5 that were right in front of the ref’s, like “The take-down” that should’ve been a sack.
