Oakland Raiders @ Tennessee Titans Offensive Preview

New, comments
   VS.    

Tomorrow should be some good ole slobber knockin' football.  The Raiders are ranked 29th against the run giving up 141.7 yards per game.  We should see a heavy dose of LenDale White earl in the game.  If they can establish the run early, you might see The Round Mound with 30+ carries tomorrow, especially if Chris Brown cannot go tomorrow.

The Raiders defense ranks 12th against the pass giving up 204.2 yards per game.  The Titans are going to have to throw the ball a little bit in this game to keep the defense honest.  The Raiders will probably come out with 9 in the box and dare Vince Young to beat them.  If he can hit some throws early it will really open up the offense.

The biggest thing for the offense tomorrow is to take care of the ball.  The worst thing to do against a struggling offense is to give them a short field.  If the Titans offense can move the ball, even on the drives that don't get points, it will force the Raiders to put together some long drives.

Also, assuming Vince is 100% healthy, I would love to see Norm Chow and company call some designed runs for him tomorrow.  I would also like to see him take off on his own on some passing plays.  We haven't seen him run the ball very much at all this season.  Keeping him in the pocket is just helping the defense.
