The NFL heads to Mexico City, as two of the most impressive teams this season meet.
Both the Houston Texans and Oakland Raiders continue to find ways to win, as the Texans enter play 6-3, while the Raiders are at 7-2.
The Texans improved to 6-3 on the season, as they have rattled off back to back wins.
While the win over Jacksonville wasn’t as impressive as the Texans would have liked it to be, this team is finding ways to grind out wins and step up late in games.
One thing Houston must see improvement from is QB Brock Osweiler.
After signing him to a hefty contract this past offseason, Osweiler has failed to live up to the expectations. He tossed for just 99 yards against Jacksonville and the offense accumulated just 273 yards in total.
While the defense has been the main source for momentum and the team securing wins, it will eventually be up to Osweiler and this offense to come through late.
The task won’t be easy here for Osweiler going up against the Raiders defense that has been red hot, so expect RB Lamar Miller to get a lot of touches here.
Oakland is becoming a very scary team.
Everyone anticipated all those high draft picks would eventually turn into something big for this franchise, but what they’re doing right now is above and beyond expectations.
Oakland enters play winners of 3 straight games and had a well deserved bye last week. Oakland is currently tied with Kansas City atop the AFC West.
The Raiders are leaning on QB Derek Carr thus far.
Carr is averaging 278 yards per game and has an impressive 17 touchdown to 3 interception ratio.
The defense is hot for Oakland, but don’t overlook the fact that they have struggled as a whole this season. Oakland is allowing 283.2 pass yards per game, along with 114.7 rush yards.
They’ll have their hands full with a good runningback in Miller and DeAndre Hopkins out wide.

- Texans are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a bye week.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Houston +6
For a neutral site game, this is a lot of points. Houston will lean on Lamar Miller here, which should create some success and open the pass game for Osweiler. Expect this one to be close throughout.
