Greetings, Raider Nation! It's time to bust out your Corona and churros, because tonight is the big night. The first-place Oakland Raiders will be taking on the Houston Texans in Mexico City at historic Azteca Stadium.
The Raiders have the opportunity tonight to beat another good team on national television and put themselves well in line for a first-round playoff bye. This game also brings something the Raiders haven't dealt with very much lately- heightened expectations. Oakland is about a six point favorite going into tonight's game.
Will Oakland be able to ground and pound the Texans' woeful run defense, or will Derek Carr shred them through the air like he did to Baltimore and Tampa? Will Houston's sorry-ass offense be able to crack 16 points? We'll find out tonight!
