This Sunday will match a pair of teams looking for some redemption in Oakland. The Raiders come in after a heartbreaking loss at Arizona. While the Texans were thoroughly out-played for the second week in a row while losing to the Cowboys.
One could argue that the Raiders should be the 2-1 team and the Texans the 1-2 team. After an impressive win against the Colts the Texans were extremely fortunate to win at Washington before getting taken apart by Dallas on Sunday.
This is a close game on paper and I feel it is a winnable game for either team. That being said, I feel the Raiders will pull this one out come Sunday.
Let's take a look at the reasons why.
