Visiting Oakland found a team more self-destructive than itself.

Kerry Collins threw for three touchdowns, and the Raiders beat Tennessee for their third victory in the last four games.

The Raiders (3-4) came up with six sacks, including 21/2 by Warren Sapp, and two turnovers they converted into 10 points. They also won their first road game this season, and they did it with their first victory in Tennessee against a team that had won the first three in this series.

The Titans (2-6) again blew a game they had a chance to win, with the league's youngest team making repeated mistakes. They outdid the Raiders, who came in tied for the league lead in penalties with 65, by racking up nine for 79 yards.

"Call it lucky, call it fortunate, call it what you will," Collins said. "We've had a bunch of them go against us. We were able to handle those kinds of things, and I think that was a big key to winning the game."
