The Las Vegas Raiders notched their second victory of the season in Week 7, here are the studs and duds from a big win over the Houston Texans.
The Las Vegas Raiders played their second “complete game” of the season as they came away with a comprehensive 38-20 against the Houston Texans. The Texans are one of the worst teams in the league by record but they have shown plenty of fight in each of their games and have taken both the Denver Broncos and LA Chargers down to the wire.
As we have learned through seven weeks of the NFL season, there is no such thing as a guaranteed victory in this league and for much of the game, it looked like the Raiders may be disappointed once again. That is until Josh Jacobs began to take over the game and the Raiders made another big play on defense at Allegiant Stadium to turn the tide in their favor.
This was a type of win that you feel good about because despite the initial struggles it was a comfortable victory in the end and one that you can build some momentum on. Next up is a trip to New Orleans to play a Saints team that is dangerous regardless of their record but first, here are the studs and duds from a big home victory in Week 7.
