The Oakland Raiders and the Houston Texans will both be trying to pick up a win on Saturday when they battle at NRG Stadium.

ABOUT THE RAIDERS (12-4): Oakland, making its first postseason appearance since reaching the Super Bowl in 2002, is hoping to rally around Cook, a fourth-round draft pick out of Michigan State who finished 14-of-21 for 150 yards with a touchdown and an interception in last week’s loss at Denver. “Obviously, playing at Michigan State, we played in some big-time games there,” said Cook, who was inactive for the first 15 games. “So, I’m going to try and take whatever I did there, use it, put it to use out there Saturday.” The Raiders have the league’s No. 6 rushing attack at 120.1 yards per game and likely will try to ease the pressure on Cook by featuring a heavy dose of Latavius Murray and rookie DeAndre Washington. Defensive end Khalil Mack has recorded 11 sacks for a unit that ranked last in the league with 25.

ABOUT THE TEXANS (9-7): Coach Bill O’Brien finally ran out of patience with Osweiler, a high-priced free-agent signee in the offseason, after he tossed a pair of interceptions against lowly Jacksonville on Dec. 18. The injury to Savage – currently in the NFL concussion protocol – also gives Osweiler an opportunity to erase the memory of a year ago, when he was benched in Denver’s regular-season finale in favor of Peyton Manning, who promptly led the Broncos to the Super Bowl title. “When you do become the backup, you’re able to observe a lot more,” O’Brien told reporters. “You’re able to observe in practice. In the games, in the meetings, and I think it helped him.” The Texans received a boost when running back Lamar Miller, who rushed for 1,069 yards this season, practiced fully on Wednesday after missing two games with an ankle injury.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Texans listed as 4-point favorites versus the Raiders, while the game’s total is sitting at 37 according to Mybookie.agblacklogo-132x42.

The highest-profile position on the field also will be the one surrounded by the most question marks when the Houston Texans host the Oakland Raiders on Saturday afternoon in the opening game of Wild Card Weekend. Oakland is down to its third-string quarterback in rookie Connor Cook while Houston turns back to Brock Osweiler, who was benched three weeks ago.

The rematch from Week 11, when Oakland rallied for a 27-20 win in Mexico behind two fourth-quarter touchdown passes by Derek Carr, will have a decidedly different look after Carr broke his leg in Week 15 and backup Matt McGloin injured his left shoulder in the regular-season finale. That leaves Cook in line to become the first quarterback in the Super Bowl era to have his first career start occur in the postseason, a welcome development for the AFC South champions’ top-ranked defense. “That’s great, I hope we blitz him all game,” Houston defensive end Jadeveon Clowney told reporters. Osweiler started the first 15 games for the Texans before losing his job to Tom Savage, who suffered a concussion last week to give Osweiler a second chance.

Houston lost its last outing, a 24-17 result against the Titans on January 01. The Texans failed to cover in that game as a +3-point underdog, while the 41 combined points took the game UNDER the total.

Last time out for Oakland, they were a 24-6 loser as they battled the Broncos on the road. The Raiders failed to cover in the match as a +1-point underdog, while 30 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
