Texans taking their show across the border

Game vs Raiders in Estadio Azteca in Mexico City

The Houston Texans (6-3, 1st AFC South) took care of business at home against the Detroit Lions (5-4, 1st NFC North) two weeks ago, on the road last weekend against the Jacksonville Jaguars (2-7, 4th AFC South)and now will head across the border to take on the Oakland Raiders (7-2, 2nd AFC West) on Monday Night Football next week.

“We’re excited about that,” head coach Bill O’Brien said Monday. “I know that (team owner) Mr. McNair and the NFL feel strongly about international play. It’s a pretty short trip for us. We know we’re going to have a lot of fans down there, which texans-1is great for our team and our organization.”

The Texans were on the road against the Jaguars last weekend and collected their first road win of the season. For the ailing Jaguars, they have yet to win at home.

“We have to play the game the way we see it playing out,” Texans coach Bill O’Brien said. “We don’t worry about stats. I think everyone needs to understand that in the National Football League it’s all about winning. It’s about winning. Whatever it takes to win that is what we try to do. Sometimes it doesn’t work out, but six times this year it has worked out and three times it hasn’t. Hopefully, we can be on the positive side of the ledger.”

The Texans will now set their sites on the 7-2 Oakland Raiders in Mexico City.

“I think they’re playing as one of the best teams in the league,” O’Brien said. “I think that they’re very athletic. I think offensively just watching a lot of their film here over the last couple days, big, big offensive line. Downhill running attack. Derek Carr is playing very, very well.”

This game has sold out.
