It's week 12 of the 2015 season. The Raiders are in Tennessee where it is pretty damp today. The Titans' ground crew was taking tarps off the field at pregame. It's hard to say if a wet field would favor either team. Although last week in Jacksonville Mariota was having some trouble with a terribly muddy field there, this is his home field, so you'd have to think the Titans would be prepared for it.
Rodney Hudson won't play in the game after re-aggravating his ankle sprain last week. Which means Tony Bergstrom will once again start in his place. See all the inactives here.
Most predictions have the 4-6 Raiders beating the 2-8 Titans. Both teams have struggled on offense lately, but the Titans have been much worse. Then again, the Titans strengths seem to match-up well with the Raiders. They have a strong pass rush and the Raiders need to have time to make big plays downfield. Their leading receiver is tight end Delanie Walker and the Raiders don't do well against tight ends.
Should be an interesting game. Hopefully not a crap fest. But with the way these two teams have played recently, you never know.
