The start to this season is the farthest thing from what anyone within the Raiders organization and their fanbase ever expected going into this 2022 season. With high expectations for this year, the Raiders go into Week 3 winless at 0-2.
They lost a Week 1 battle against division rival the Los Angeles Chargers and gave up the biggest lead in franchise history in Week 2, letting the Arizona Cardinals come back from a 20-0 deficit at half, to win the game in overtime 29-23.
The Titans have fared in the same fashion, starting off the season 0-2. They lost a nail biter to the Giants in Week 1 on a missed game winning field goal and got blown out by the Buffalo Bills on Monday Night Football in Week 2. Going into this game against the Raiders with a sour taste in their mouth, there is no doubt they see this week as a possible get right game to get their first win of the season.
If the Raiders are going to pull out a win against this talented Titans team, they are going to need a few things on both sides of the ball to go their way. Most see this as a very winnable game for the Raiders, but as they have proven these last two weeks, becoming their own worst enemy can prove to be a fatal flaw. Here are my three keys to victory if the Raiders are going to go out and get their first win of the season in Tennessee.
