The Oakland Raiders will play host to Matt Schaub, Andre Johnson, Arian Foster, and the Houston Texans this Sunday.
This will not be an easy game for the Raiders. The Texans have a very explosive offense, with some incredibly talented playmakers that can find the end zone regularly.
The Raiders will combat the potent Texans' offense with the third-ranked defense in total yards allowed, but that statistic is a little misleading—the Raiders are 24th in points allowed.
This is a serious problem when facing an offense like that of the Texans'.
What can be done to stop Houston? Several things come to mind.
Because this game will be won or lost with the defense, we'll start there.
