Another winnable game for the Texans will be against another AFC West team, the Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders are another team who are entering the season with a new quarterback.

The Raiders traded 2012 starting quarterback Carson Palmer to the Arizona Cardinals and made a deal with the Seattle Seahawks to bring in Matt Flynn.

Flynn is expected to start the season as quarterback but if things do not go well early in the season, we may see rookie quarterback Tyler Wilson, who the Raiders drafted in the 4th round, by the time the Texans meet the Raiders in Week 11.

The only chance the Raiders have of winning this game will be if running back Darren McFadden can stay healthy and if the Texans defense is riddled with injuries.
