Both teams went back and forth until the 4th quarter when the Raider secondary stepped up and Abdul-Hakeem picked off the Drew Quarterback. The Raider offense fell flat again and turned the ball back to the Titans with 2 minutes to go. Drew put together a drive but then Kamari Murphy stepped up and picked off the Drew QB one last time to seal the victory for the Raiders.
