For the first time in franchise history, the Texans will play a game in Las Vegas.
Houston faces the Raiders on the road in Week 7, and the Texans are taking on a team that went 10-7, finished second in the AFC West, and lost in the Wild Card round to the Bengals.
The Raiders have a new Head Coach in Josh McDaniels. He comes to the desert after serving as the Patriots Offensive Coordinator since 2012. He was the Broncos Head Coach in 2009 and 2010. His brother, Ben, serves as the Texans Wide Receivers Coach.
The Texans and Raiders have faced each other 11 times during the regular season, and Houston's been victorious in seven of those contests.
Notable Raiders: QB Derek Carr, WR Davante Adams, WR Hunter Renfrow, DE Maxx Crosby, LB Denzel Perryman
Texans Defensive Lineman Maliek Collins was a Raider in 2020.
