Eddie George wouldn't mind playing the Oakland Raiders every week.
The two-time Pro Bowl selection had a career-high 249 total yards and two touchdowns to carry Tennessee past the Raiders tonight, 21-14.
George carried 28 times for 199 yards, his most since getting 216 against the Raiders in 1997, against an Oakland defense that had been giving up just 90.3 a game. He also caught a career-high six passes for 50 yards.
"It's just ironic," George said of his great games against Oakland. "It's just the next team on the schedule."
The Titans (10-3) started slow, looking as if they were still reeling from last weekend's 41-14 loss in Baltimore, their worst in two years. But Oakland (6-7) missed two field goal attempts in the scoreless first half.
Coach Jeff Fisher had a feeling that George, who had topped 100 yards rushing in only three games this season, was ready for a breakout performance.
"He was possessed all week. He had that look in his eye beginning about 4 o'clock Sunday," Fisher said of George, who carried only eight times for 32 yards against the Ravens.
George said the entire team was bitter over the loss to the Ravens and wanted redemption.
"I think I finally found that game where I can just cut it loose," George said.
