Monday Night Football in Mexico: Texans and Raiders

Talk about the Monday Night Football game.

NFL: Houston Texans at Oakland Raiders Erich Schlegel-USA TODAY Sports

It is Monday Night Football and it is live from Mexico City, Mexico as the Oakland Raiders and Houston Texans square off in a matchup of potential playoff contenders.

Heading into the game it is a battle of differing styles of play and success.

The Raiders have a high flying offense, an attacking defense and present one of the most exciting to watch brands of football in the NFL.

Meanwhile, the Texans are struggling to find their offensive niche behind Brock Osweiler, but they have an electric, play making running back in Lamar Miller.

Defensively, the Texans miss J.J. Watt, but have a plethora of talent on the defensive side of the ball.

When you look at this game, it looks like a slam dunk for the Raiders, their offense has the chance to be special, but their defense has struggled to make plays.

The Raiders are favored by seven and I think they win it in that fashion.
