The Titans were burned by Michael Crabtree for 102 receiving yards on Sunday as the Raiders picked up a 17-10 win at Nissan Stadium.

Oakland was the ATS victor, as they covered the -2.0-point spread as a favorite. Over-Under bettors who played UNDER the total of 47.0 were rewarded at the payout window.

DeAndre Washington rushed for 57 yards, while Latavius Murray added 37 yards in the win. Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper added 102 and 62 receiving yards respectively.

DeMarco Murray rushed for 114 yards for Tennessee, while Derrick Henry added 45 yards. Marcus Mariota threw for 214 yards for the Titans, while receivers Jace Amaro and Tajae Sharpe had 59 and 48 yards respectively.

Oakland lost the offensive yardage battle to Tennessee 393-368 yards in Sunday’s game. Tennessee had more first downs as that total ended up 19-17.

Oakland lost the time of possession battle 30:57-29:03, leaving their defense on the field more than they wanted.

Oakland looks to continue their winning ways next game with a battle against the Ravens. The Titans will aim to get back on the winning track at Houston.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Like the scene of an auto accident, it all depends on one’s perspective.

The Tennessee Titans felt wide receiver Harry Douglas was grabbed or interfered with on their fourth-down pass into the end zone with 12 seconds left in the game.

Oakland Raiders cornerback TJ Carrie felt otherwise, and the officials agreed with him, capping a wild final minute that saw Oakland’s much-maligned defense hold off Tennessee’s final drive to preserve a 17-10 win Sunday at Nissan Stadium.

In upping their record to 2-1, the Raiders made real improvements on defense, where they had allowed 69 points and an NFL-worst 1,035 yards in their first two games. Oakland gave up 393 yards but controlled the Titans for most of the first half and most of the fourth quarter. The Raiders forced three turnovers.

“We saw glimpses of what we want to be on defense today,” Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said, “but we still have things to clean up.”

However, Oakland was able to keep Tennessee (1-2) out of the end zone when it mattered most, thanks to Carrie and a pair of costly penalties on the Titans.

Tennessee reached the Raiders’ 3-yard line on Marcus Mariota’s 19-yard pass to rookie wide receiver Tajae Sharpe with 1:02 remaining. But left tackle Taylor Lewan gave 15 yards back with an unnecessary roughness penalty as he blasted into the pile after the whistle.

Lewan said after the game that he would do it again if given the chance.

“I had no idea why they called it,” Lewan said. “I’ve done it before. I thought he was still up. A bunch of Raiders were jumping on him and I was helping my teammate. I’m disappointed that I hurt my team.”

Three plays later, the Titans appeared to tie the game when veteran Andre Johnson caught a 13-yard touchdown pass from Mariota. But Johnson was flagged for offensive pass interference as he pushed Carrie to the turf at the goal line.

“If he doesn’t fall down, they don’t call it,” Johnson said of the play.

After Mariota’s 11-yard pass to DeMarco Murray pushed the ball back to the 12, Tennessee used its last timeout to set up its final play. Mariota rolled left and opted for Douglas on a corner route about four yards deep in the end zone.

Carrie appeared to make contact with Douglas before the ball sailed over his head, but the officials decided not to flag the play. The crowd of 62,370 — minus a few thousand Oakland fans — howled in disbelief at the ending.

“I think I was able to defend the play with excellent coverage,” Carrie said. “I was able to slip inside him with an inside technique. I wasn’t surprised that there wasn’t a flag.”

The result was the Titans’ 16th loss in their last 18 home games, dating back to the 2014 season’s beginning. The two wins in that span are against Jacksonville.

Tennessee kept the Raiders’ high-powered offense in check, holding it to 372 total yards and blanking it in the second half. But Oakland quarterback Derek Carr still completed 21 of 35 passes for 249 yards, including a 19-yard touchdown pass to Seth Roberts with 33 seconds left in the first half that gave the Raiders a 17-3 halftime lead.

The Raiders also got a 22-yard scoring run from Latavius Murray with 8:19 remaining in the first quarter and a 52-yard field goal from Sebastian Janikowski at the 8:13 mark of the second quarter. The boot enabled Janikowski to set an NFL record with 53 field goals of 50 yards or longer.

Ryan Succop booted a 34-yard field goal just over five minutes into the game to start the scoring for the Titans. Murray’s 5-yard run with 5:51 left in the third quarter pulled Tennessee within a touchdown.

Murray finished with 114 yards on 16 carries, the first 100-yard game for a Titans running back since Chris Johnson pulled it off in the 2013 season finale.
