The Runners: Even though the Oakland Raiders went 1-3 in the preseason, they have a new found talent in Kahlil Bell - who is approaching quickly on the heels of second year running back, Dareen McFadden. Bell possesses the ability to break arm tackles left and right, and at the same time catch some balls out of the backfield. The Texans also have a running back who can do everything in Chris Johnson, but the second year man is mainly known for his outstanding speed - something Houston have found successful considering their offensive line is lacking a bit.

The Quarterbacks: Jamarcus Russell did not have a stellar 2008, but with a weak backup in Andrew Walter and Tuiasosopo, the Raiders haven't found a need to change. Houston begins the 2009 season with a controversial decision when Gray Kubiak announced the promotion of rookie Graham Harell in place of 6-year, young veteran, Matt Schaub.

The Defense: The Raiders cornerbacks are two of the leagues best. Nate Asomugha and Deangelo Hall have proven that they are a force to be considered - and with Texans rookie Patrick Turner matched up against Hall - we should see some fairly aggerssive play. The Texans have a strong secondary but weak defensive line, the only considerable strength is Mario Williams - but other than that, Frank Okam and Travis Johnson have not lived up to their college careers.

The Score: 28-10 Raiders. I think the decision of Harrell over Schaub is going to dictate what happens in this one - whether the rook has the confidence needed to get the job done is another thing. As much as I hate to root against the Texans, I think the powerful offensive running game is going to wear and tear on the weaker Houston defense.

That was a great offensive performance.

The Consistency: Both teams defensively have given up 30+ points, however it will be the running defense that is going to play a bigger role in today's game I feel. Whichever team will be more consistent in stopping the runners from getting those 10-20 yard long gains will be the team that wins the battle of momentum here.

The Quarterbacks: It has to be said, but Gary Kubiak's has made the decision to remain with rookie Graham Harrell, even though the Texas Tech graduate only had 6 completions the entire game against Oakland. On the other side is veteran Derek Anderson, who put up adequate numbers against Miami last week. Anderson should not have trouble with the Texans secondary, who had trouble against Ronald Curry last week.

The Receivers: Speaking of receivers, Patrick Turner, rookie from USC, remains in front of Chad Jackson for the Texans. Turner led the team in yards receiving with 45 last week, but his route running was suspect. Andre Johnson was not even a factor against Oakland. While some of his absence can be chalked up to quarterback error from Harrell, the Texans start player needs to pick it up today. Braylon Edwards is the Browns 'numero uno', but Dante Stallworth has a nack for making the big plays - so the Texans would be wise not to overpursue Edwards side of the field; tight end Kellen Winslow is a force as well.

The Score: 17-14 Texans. No, I'm not sure that Harrell will get the job done, but I think the Texans defense will start to improve throughout the game. The game is going to be kept close due to errors mostly - but I think the Texans win it at the end with a field goal from Kris Brown with no time remaining.
