This first game on the slate is between two teams who are exceedingly likely to advance to the Super Bowl in the AFC, where there are only three teams with their starting quarterbacks. Unless you count Brock Osweiler, I guess.
This talented Raiders team will have to overcome a middling defense and a rookie fourth-round quarterback starting in order to pull off the win. The Texans are home and have a superior defense, but man, are they limited by their quarterback situation.
This should be ugly and potentially hilarious. Here’s what you need to know for the game.
