Brock Osweiler Named Starter For Houston Texans

Also this is his second benching in the past two years, so he should be coming into this game angry and looking to prove himself. "You're able to observe in practice, in the games, in the meetings".

According to Outkick The Coverage, ESPN actually had to pay $100 million to televise the upcoming Wild Card game between the Texans and Raiders and can only make $25 million from airing the game.

If anything, all could be forgiven with Osweiler if he finds a way to lead Houston to a win against an Oakland team that is dealing with a rough situation at quarterback as well since Derek Carr will be watching from the sidelines after suffering a broken fibula in Week 16. Without Carr this is a Raiders team with a very definite ceiling, and unfortunately for them it falls well short of a Super Bowl. Without him, the Raiders' likely ceiling would be a win here and then a one-sided loss next week in the divisional round.

After 24 hours of speculation, Raiders coach Jack Del Rio confirmed on Wednesday that Connor Cook will be the team's starting quarterback against the Houston Texans. That's important to know because McGloin hurt his shoulder in the second quarter against Denver and didn't return. Cook was bad in that game and it hurt his draft status in a big way. But the Raiders helped him out throughout the season with what is probably the league's second-best offensive line, and that unit - which houses three Pro Bowlers in Donald Penn, Kelechi Osemele and Rodney Hudson - remains intact.

Saturday 7:15 Seattle-Seattle (10-5-1) over Detroit (9-6).

It's rare that a coach gets fired after consecutive playoff appearances, but the Texans might be at the point where change could come with another early postseason exit.

Palace boss Sam Allardyce also complained about the tight scheduling, saying that "I don't know who does the fixtures, but he really needs sacking".

Tennessee certainly took out those frustrations on the Texans on Sunday. Kaepernick has struggled ever since and Smith is now a (healthy) member of the Kansas City Chiefs, who won the AFC West this year.

The Houston Texans (9-7) managed to win the AFC South even though losing their last game against Tennessee.

So, as the Raiders prepare this week for their wild-card-round playoff game with the Texans in Houston Saturday, the opposing offense doesn't offer a huge hurdle. If he can't play Saturday, Brandon Weeden, who hasn't played this season, would back up Osweiler. He missed the final two weeks of the regular season with an ankle injury. He followed up his best 15 minutes of football with the Texans, part of his Week Six fourth-quarter comeback vs. Indianapolis, with a clunker homecoming against his former team the following week, albeit one with an exceptional defense.

The Patriots quarterback passed Dan Marino for fourth on the all-time passing yards list and broke Nick Foles' TD-INT ratio mark. With a victory Sunday at Miami , the Patriots would improve to 8-0 in away games and clinch postseason home-field advantage.
