Derek Carr and the Oakland Raiders (7-2) face off against the Houston Texans (6-3) on Monday Night Football in Mexico City’s Estadio Azteca.

The Raiders emerge from their bye week on a three-game winning streak and have won six of their last seven. Behind Carr and receivers Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree, Oakland ranks sixth in the NFL in passing offense at 278.3 yards per game.

The Texans rebounded for a season-best 181 rushing yards in a win over Jacksonville to offset another subpar effort from quarterback Brock Osweiler and provide hope for an uneven offense moving forward.

Here’s how to watch the game:

When: 8:30 p.m. ET

NFL must play its cards right when it comes to Las Vegas

Leave a comment

It’s official.

The NFL has approved the relocation of the Oakland Raiders to Las Vegas, and with the move comes the pressure the league must now face in a city that embraces its gambling and vibrant nightlife.

Not only could this cause problems for the league, which has been outspoken against gambling on sports, but it could impact its players, who now have to deal with being in and around gambling year round.

With so many questions, the NFL must embrace these realities of being a part of Sin City in the future.

PFT’s Mike Florio breaks down the NFL’s future in Sin City in the video above from the owners’ meetings in Arizona.

 

Vince Young wants to play again, hires agent Leigh Steinberg

Leave a comment

Vince Young is hoping his football career isn’t over.

Young has hired agent Leigh Steinberg, who announced on Twitter today that Young has a “dream of playing more football.”

That Steinberg used the word “dream” suggests that he and Young realize it will be an uphill battle to get back to the NFL. Young hasn’t played in a regular season game since 2011, when he threw four touchdown passes and nine interceptions for the Eagles. He has spent time with the Bills, Packers and Browns since then but never made it past the preseason.

The fledgling Spring League has already said it would be interested in Young, so he’s got someone interested in him. But the Spring League is a long, long way from the NFL. It’s highly likely that Young has played his last NFL game, even if, at age 33, he’s not quite ready to say definitively that he’s done.
