The Las Vegas Raiders return from their bye week by hosting the Houston Texans at Allegiant Stadium on Sunday. Kickoff is at 1:05 p.m. PT.

Let’s take a quick look at the Texans:


Houston is 1-3-1. It has its bye in Week 6 as well. This is a great opportunity for the Raiders to come out of the bye strong against a poor team.

Last time these two teams met:

These two teams last played October 27, 2019. The Texans won 27-24. Raiders’ quarterback Derek Carr, who was part of the Texans’ family as a youth when his brother, David, quarterbacked them, is 1-3 against the Texans. Houston beat the Raiders in the playoffs in the 2016 season after Carr was injured.
