Game Preview: The Raiders host the Titans in the third preseason game for both teams. The third game is seen as the most critical as the starters play the majority of the game. It serves as a dress rehearsal for the start of the regular season.
Both teams have young quarterbacks they are building their offense around. Derek Carr leads the Raiders and teams up with second-year receiver Amari Cooper. For the Titans, Marcus Mariota enters his second season. Mariota has additional help this season with two big running backs in DeMarco Murray and rookie Derek Henry.
The Raiders have built a solid young defensive core led by Khalil Mack. Oakland added safety Reggie Nelson and LEO rusher Bruce Irvin this offseason.
