The Houston Texans have to leave their home stadium of NRG Stadium and make the trip to Oakland, Ca. to face the Oakland Raiders in Week 2 of the NFL schedule.

For this game, the weather report in Oakland on Sunday is a high of 76 degrees and zero percent chance of rain, which is a good thing because the Texans will be facing the Raiders outdoors at the O.co Coliseum.

The WNW is predicted to be 11 mph with a humidity of 66-percent.

On weather.com it says of Sunday around the time of kickoff for the game:

"“Some clouds in the morning will give way to mainly sunny skies for the afternoon. High 76F. Winds WNW at 10 to 15 mph.”"

This type of weather should be good for the Texans. Their offense doesn’t need yet another obstacle to fend off as they try to score more than the one touchdown they did on the offensive side of the ball last week against the Washington Redskins.
