Oakland Raiders 2019 predictions for each regular season game
By Nick Ellis
Games 13 and 14
Game No. 13 vs. Tennessee Titans
The Tennessee Titans are a solid team year in and year out, as they have one of the best passing defenses in the league. This is also around the time of the year where Derrick Henry starts to dominate, and the Titans become a run heavy team, as they look to move away from former first rounder Marcus Mariota.
The Titans give the ball to Henry early, but the Raiders expect it and shut it down, as Josh Jacobs continues his Rookie of the Year campaign, having another 100-yard game as the Raiders win a low scoring game to improve to 7-6. The playoffs are in sight, though only one home game remains on the schedule.
Game No. 14 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
The Jacksonville Jaguars are going into Week 14 competing with the Houston Texans for the AFC South title, as Nick Foles has been better than most expected. The Raiders have been on a bit of a hot streak, winning five of their last six, and a win here would put them in playoff contention.
Derek Carr struggles as the Jaguars defense is all over him, forcing bad throws and getting sacks left and right. The Raiders can’t get anything going, and Leonard Fournette wears down the Raiders defense all game long to punch in two touchdowns at the goal line, giving the Jaguars the advantage over the Raiders.
