Oakland - Alameda County Coliseum
STAR OF THE GAME
Quarterback Marcus Mariota engineers scoring drives on Tennessee's opening four possesions for 20 points against Oakland's first-team defense. The former Oregon star is 9 of 16 passing for 170 yards with no turnovers or sacks.
The Titans (2-1) have 106 rushing yards on 21 carries in the first half. Tennessee erases a 14-13 deficit on a 14-play, 85-yard drive culminated by Derrick Henry's 3-yard TD run with 1:52 left in the first half. Henry, a rookie from Alabama, finishes with a team-high 49 rushing yards on 12 carries.
The Raiders' Derek Carr is 12 of 18 passing for 169 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions and a 133.8 passer rating. He throws scoring passes to DeAndre Washington (6 yards) and Amari Cooper (29 yards). Carr almost had a third TD pass but missed an open Clive Walford in the back of the end zone late in the second quarter with the Raiders (1-2) trailing 20-14.
Linerbacker David Bass returns a DeAndre Washington fumble 47 yards for a touchdown early in the third quarter for the only score of the second half.
THEY SAID IT
“When you're playing a running team like that, you have to play gap-sound defense, you have to set edges, you have to play gaps or they'll make you pay. They made us pay tonight."
Raiders LB Bruce Irvin
