What to watch for: Titans-Raiders

It's the moment we've all been waiting for -- Week 3 of the NFL preseason. We'll see more established stars and potential starters than any other week of the preseason. Around The NFL's Conor Orr dissects what you can expect to see from the 16 games this weekend.

Here's what to what to watch for ...

TITANS at RAIDERS (8 p.m., CBS)

» How does Marcus Mariota finish out the preseason? Last year's No. 2 overall pick has been nothing short of fantastic and has only thrown one incomplete pass. The Raiders are no joke on defense, unfortunately, and could look to spoil what has been a fantastic preseason.

» Does Menelik Watson finish off Austin Howard for the right tackle job? The Raiders certainly hope so, and have poured a ton of time and effort into developing their 2013 second-round pick. An Achilles issue last season threw away what seemed to be a ton of progress, but now Watson isn't looking back.

» Earlier this week we wrote about Andre Johnson refusing to take days off in Nashville, though we still don't have a completely realistic picture of how the receiver will fit in the offense. Head coach Mike Mularkey would like us to think otherwise, and could prove it this weekend against Oakland.
