Last Meeting between Tennessee Titans and Oakland Raiders

 

Tennessee Titans

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – Derek Carr passed for 330 yards and three touchdowns, including the game-winner with less than two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, helping the Oakland Raiders exit a soggy Nissan Stadium with a 24-21 victory over the Tennessee Titans.

Carr completed 24 of 37 passes without throwing an interception on a rainy afternoon in which his counterpart, Titans rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota, was victimized by two costly interceptions. Mariota’s second picked off pass came in Oakland territory with 43 seconds on the clock to end the Titans’ hopes of pulling out a dramatic win.
