It was an ugly, ugly day for the Oakland Raiders in their 2014 home opener, as the offense couldn’t get anything going until late, and the defense did a Swiss cheese impression from the opening whistle.
Week Two looks tougher for the Oakland Raiders now that the Houston Texans posted their first win in almost a year. Can the Raiders win their home opener? Sure, they can, if both the offense and the defense play better than they did in Week One against the New York Jets on the road.
The Houston Texans have long seen their offense strike when the iron is hot and consistently run up the score, but they’ve needed the defense to keep the lead. With some players leaving and others are not living up to the hype, J.J. Watt brings the whole package to a team that is getting better every season.
Bill Cowher likes his desk job, Brian Kelly likes school, and the All-Pro team offers little surprise.
