The Texans are coming into this week having beaten the Washington Redskins in their opening game at home by a score of 17-6, effectively shutting down the Washington offense. The Raiders lost their game in the opening week to the New York Jets by the score of 19-14, unable to squeak out an opening day victory on the road.

The Houston Texans are coming into this week hoping to repeat their performance on defense this week, and hold the Raiders offense down much like they held the Redskins down. The Texans will have to do it without the help of 1st overall draft pick Jadeveon Clowney, who went down with an injury that will keep hims sidelined for the next 6 weeks. Arian Foster will need another solid performance this week as well, if they hope to keep their winning ways up.

The Raiders, on the other hand, the Raiders offense was pretty anemic, with quarterback Derek Carr only getting 151 yards through the air. While Carr did score 2 touchdowns, the Raiders leading rusher, Darren McFadden only managed to get 15 yards on the ground last week. While the Raiders defense did perform reasonably well, they will need to improve on offense if they hope to overcome the Houston Texans this week.

The line for this game is set favoring the Texans by 3 points, while the over/under is set at 39.5.

The Raiders would love to get a win on Sunday, but the Texans will be too much for the Raiders to handle. Texans win 17-10.
