Oakland is coming off a 28-23 win over the Houston Texans, which essentially kept the Raiders' season alive. Rookie quarterback Matt McGloin made his debut and was terrific, throwing for three touchdowns without tossing an interception.
On the other hand, Tennessee lost a heartbreaker to the Indianapolis Colts at home with a chance to get back into the AFC South race. Leading 14-0, the Titans could not hold onto the lead and fell to 4-6 on the season, now desperately trying to stay in the wild card picture.
