The 1-0 Houston Texans will travel to a different time zone this week, seeking a second consecutive win to start the season as they are slated to face the Oakland Raiders (0-1) on Sunday afternoon in Oakland.
Here is some information on the game:

TV Channel: CBS
Radio: Sirius XM Radio/ local
Live Stream: Direct TV Stream/ NFL Red Zone Channel

There are a few questions for this game, because one is can the Texans offense play a little better, than just having a lot of rushing yards and one big play for a TD on offense like last week?
Yes, it was good to see the Texans starting QB – Ryan Fitzpatrick – not throw any interceptions, but it seemed the Texans played it safe with him. Though his 76 yard touchdown pass to DeAndre Hopkins was quite a site to see, and the Texans defeated the Washington Redskins, 17-6.
But for the Texans to have success this game, and this season, the offense will have to have more than one touchdown if they want to win.

Looking very quickly at the defense … can J.J. Watt have another dominating game this week like he did in the season opener? I don’t see why he can’t, but others will have to step up more on the defense with the absence of rookie OLB Jadeveon Clowney, who is out 4-6 weeks following knee surgery.
This should be a fun game, but a game I see as winnable for the Texans this weekend.
