The Las Vegas Raiders come off their bye week and welcome the Houston Texans in Week 7. Here are the x-factors heading into Sunday’s matchup.
The Las Vegas Raiders come off their bye week and embark on what is hopefully the turnaround to a much more promising finish to the season. That goal begins in Week 7 as they welcome the Houston Texans to Allegiant Stadium. The Silver and Black, sitting with a 1-4 record, cannot afford to overlook their opponent this week, and several injuries to the roster only heightens that fact.
As we’ve seen this season already, anything and everything can happen in this league. The Raiders should be favored to win their second game of the season at the expense of the Texans, but the absence of some key players means the Silver and Black must leave no margin for error.
Ahead of an important Week 7 matchup, here are the x-factors for the Raiders to beat the Texans come Sunday afternoon.
