I’ll just be straightforward about this game: It’s going to be a snooze-fest. It’s not that I don’t think either of these teams are good, because they absolutely are, but they both lack in the most important position on the field.
After 14 years of garbage football, the Oakland Raiders are finally back in the playoffs for the first time since they got their asses kicked by the Buccaneers in the Super Bowl back in 2002. The Raiders were actually led by their young quarterback Derek Carr for most of the season, but unfortunately, he broke his leg in Week 16 which resulted in them losing in Week 17 and dropping the division lead to the Chiefs, as well as a first round bye. I believe that the Raiders are starting rookie Connor Cook at quarterback on Saturday, but that’s also his first career start, so it’s kind of a lot of pressure t
o put on the kid. Luckily, he’s got a good offensive line in front of him, as well as two talented receivers to throw to, so it’s not out of the question to say that Oakland can come away with a W.
I personally think that the Texans are one of the most talented teams in all of football. They have a great defense, as well as some huge weapons in their offense. The problem for Houston is that the quarterback they’re putting out there on Saturday sucks, and that’s being nice. Brock Osweiler signed a huge deal with the Texans in the offseason, and quite frankly it just hasn’t worked. He’s been so awful to the point that coach Bill O’Brien turned to backup Tom “Macho Man” Savage to secure the division. Savage went down with an injury, so it’s back to Osweiler.
I’ll still watch this game because I love football, but it won’t be pretty. Take a look below at the live stream information to see where you can watch the game.
