Both offenses started out slowly. In fact, it wasn't until the end of the fourth quarter when the Titans scored that either team had gone into the red zone and come away with a touchdown.
Both defenses played well, since, like I said, the red-zone defense of both squads turned away every attack but the last.
Matt McGloin fell into a rhythm late in the game after struggling early on, but the problems in the red zone remained and ended up being the Raiders' undoing. Sebastian Janikowski missing two field goals didn't help either.
The Titans move to 5-6 with this win, and because they own tiebreakers against the Chargers, Steelers and Jets, that puts them in the driver's seat for the playoff race—at least for the time being.
Final: Raiders 19, Titans 23
