AFC Wild Card: Oakland Raiders at Houston Texans - Live Blog

The Oakland Raiders (12-4) will try to keep their magical season alive on the road against the Houston Texans (9-7).

Most Denver Broncos fans will have an easy rooting interest in this game as they go back to hoping Brock Osweiler can play in this game for the Houston Texans like he did against the New England Patriots in 2015 and bring down the Oakland Raiders.

Without Derek Carr, that eventually seems like a real possibility. We will see what kind of heart Jack Del Rio has instilled in his players. If they come out flat like they did last week, that Texans #1 ranked defense will obliterate them.

Not to be biased, but I think that’s exactly what happens. Connor Cook might get himself a drive or two, but Osweiler will get more against a very suspect Raider defense. My prediction is Texans 20, Raiders 13.
