"Well, OK. I think today's ass-whipping was definitive enough": Oakland's Lincoln Kennedy chimes in on yesterday's victory over the New York Jets. After a 10-10 first half, Oakland dominated in all phases of the game. Will it be enough to stop the Titans next week?

One thing the Titans will have to improve on if they are going to win is their tackling. Don't get me wrong...those SOB's can HIT. But they don't tackle all that well. I counted several times in the Steelers game where a guy delivered a hellacious jolt, but didn't wrap up the receiver, and extra yards were gained. Mark my words - Rice, Brown, Porter or Garner will get a big gain, maybe even a long long TD if one of the Titans goes for a bone crunching hit without making sure he brings the man down. My prediction: Raiders 27 Titans 17

I don't know about the Titans, because in my opinion, the Steelers were one of the weak sister teams in the playoffs (Green Bay, Indianapolis the others). So either the Steelers are better than I though, or the Titans are worse. I can't believe most analysts are picking the Titans. Of course Vegas is always right, and they have Oakland by 7.
