The Houston Texans enter this Week 2 game looking for their second consecutive win, something they haven’t done since the first two weeks to start the 2013 season.

To gain their second win in as many games, the Texans will have to defeat the Oakland Raiders on the road.

This should be an interesting game, but as I wrote in my “5 Bold Predictions,” I think the Texans can win this game by more than the three points they are favored by in Vegas.

My game prediction for the AFC battle is the Texans winning by a 27-13 score, with the offense scoring three touchdowns, and kicker Randy Bullock have two field goals and three extra points.

This isn’t out of the realm of possibility, but the Texans offense will have to play better than they did last week when it comes to reaching the end zone.

If the Texans’ offense doesn’t reach the end zone but just once, like they did last week against the Washington Redskins (the Texans won, 17-6), it won’t be a win for the visitors in Week 2.

But like I’ve said … I think this offense will be improved in Week 2, and the Texans will leave California with a win.
