We win 7+.

I give up on predicting these. We should smoke them. Then again we should have pounded Buffalo at home.

I wish Mario Williams was completely healthy. If he was, he could easily post a 4 sack day.

I love my Texans, but we will be lucky to win a game the rest of the season.

Out of ESPN's 8 "experts":

picked Texans- Salisbury, Jaworski, & Golic

picked Raiders- Theismann, Hoge, Schlereth, Allen, & Mortensen

I always discount Salisbury, Jaws, & Theismann because they dont know jack.

So that means that out of the real guys we are picked to win on 1 and picked to lose on 4.

Homer in me says we win by 7+.

I look for another poor game by the Texans. The primary problem I see on offense is that are O-line is desimated and Oakland has a good defense. Our O-line is simply too porous. Could we win, but of course. However, I think the odds are our offense is not going to be functioning well. No running game and no O-line simply do not translate into a win. To beat Oakland you have to get the ball down the field and I simply can not see that happening with our O-line and our style of play.

We win the ones that no one thinks we are supposed to. SOOOO, that means, we win this Sunday. I guarantee you, the "we beat Jacksonville twice" is who you will see on the field Sunday.

They will come to win.

We lose.

Can we win... sure we can.
Will we win... probably not knowing this team, especially against a team as bad as us.
Do I hope we win... yes and by about 13 would be good (hey I'm allowed to dream a lil')...!

This is a must win by the Texans in my opinion. I hope there is a sense of urgency in the locker room and on the field for 60 minutes of play.

As much as I want to be a homer on this one, I've got to give Oakland credit for their defense. They are susceptible to the run, but we've proven all year long that we are incapable of bringing a strong running game. They've got the #1 pass defense in the NFL & the passing game has been our strongest asset. While their offense is more pathetic than ours, our defense has shown a propensity for making average offenses look like Super Bowl contenders.

So......, Oakland 10 Houston 6

I'm going out on a limb....hope it doesn't break....Texans win by less than 7 *fingers/toes crossed*

just dont turn the ball over. the raiders average about 1 td a game. dont less moss get deep and put pressure on the qb, that simple.

We must have a solid run game in order to beat the Raiders as they have one of the top pass defenses in the league.

After last week and with all the RB shuffling i'm not sure we will be able to establish the run. I'm also thinking Moss will have his first huge game of the season vs. our weak secondary.

Wow the majority of the ppl here(including me) were right for once!!
Now I wish I would've started Houston D in my FF league.
