First Half Highlights Against The Tennessee Titans

The Oakland Raiders traveled to Nashville to take on the Tennessee Titans Sunday in Week 12 regular season action.

At the half, the Raiders lead 10-6.

Here are the highlights from the first half at Nissan Stadium.

The Raiders won the opening coin toss, elected to defer, and on the opening kickoff Sebastian Janikowski booted the ball out of the back of the end zone for a touchback.

The Raiders forced a three-and-out on the Titans first offensive possession, after Marcus Mariota overthrew his intended receiver on 3rd and 8.

After the Raiders were unable to convert a third down, Marquette King punted the ball 47 yards to pin the Titans deep at their own 8-yard line.

The Raiders defense forced their second three-and-out of the afternoon when TJ Carrie broke up Mariota's pass to Kendall Wright with 11:30 left in the opening frame.

Facing 3rd and 3, Derek Carr found Andre Holmes on the outside for a gain of 9 resulting in the Raiders first, first down of the day.

After surrendering a touchdown to tight end Craig Stevens, the Raiders blocked the Titans extra point to make the score 6-0 with 5:53 left in the first quarter.

With 5:00 left in the first quarter, Carr dropped back, surveyed the field and connected with wide receiver Seth Roberts for a gain of 38.

The Raiders punctuated the drive several plays later when Carr rolled to his right and found Michael Crabtree in the corner of the end zone for a seven-yard touchdown. Janikowski added the PAT to give the Silver and Black a 7-6 lead with 1:34 left in the first quarter.

The Oakland defense forced their third three-and-out of the game in the final moments of the first quarter, when Mariota, under pressure, was forced out of the pocket and threw the ball away.

With 9:45 left in the second quarter, Khalil Mack recorded his sixth sack of the season, taking down Mariota behind the line of scrimmage for a loss of seven.

Cooper made yet another acrobatic grab with just over 7:00 left in the half, hauling in a pass from Carr for a gain of 30.

The drive stalled, but Janikowski converted a 24-yard field goal with 1:01 left in the half to give the Silver and Black a 10-6 lead.
