Texans name Osweiler starter for Raiders playoff clash

Texans name Osweiler starter for Raiders playoff clash

Since this is a home game for Houston, Janikowski gets to kick indoors for the first time since week 1, when he got a solid seven fantasy points against the New Orleans Saints. For a team looking to win its first playoff game in half a decade, this is a scary scenario for the Texans.

Karl Joseph said Tuesday he plans to return to action in the Raiders' biggest game since Super Bowl XXXVII. I say that he plays well enough against the Raiders to earn a second start in the playoffs if the Texans advance, and alright in the following game.

Also the Raiders are without their starting quarterback Derek Carr. They have won in Kansas City, Miami and Detroit this season, knocked off the reigning champion Broncos and beaten the Packers handily.

But it was the one loss - at Jacksonsville last week - that the players still lamented following Sunday's win. Can Cook make those plays in his first ever National Football League start?

Matt Cassel also threw for a touchdown in his first start this season in place of an injured Marcus Mariota, and Derrick Henry ran for a TD.

The two teams split the regular-season match-ups, but Tennessee was just 2-4 in its division games.

"I threw a pretty bad interception and he wasn't happy about it", Brady said at the time.

And that's not a good thing for Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Adam Jones, who stopped using the once-popular childhood nickname when he was trying to clean up his image following numerous run-ins with the law earlier in his career.

Jadeveon Clowney was held out of last year's playoff game due to a foot injury.

Osweiler signed a four-year contract worth $72 million last offseason but has failed to live up to expectations this season.

That move was a giant bust as Osweiler was struggling so badly that he was benched during Week 15.

The game against the Texans will mark Cook's first start since December 31, 2015, when he was Michigan State Spartans 's quarterback during a 38-0 loss to Alabama in the Cotton Bowl.

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien announced that Brock Osweiler will be starting in Saturday's playoff game against the Oakland Raiders. Oakland was forced to go to third-string QB Connor Cook, while Houston went back to well, bringing Brock Osweiler back into the fold.

With no injury report due today for the Texans because it is an off day, Monday becomes an important day in Savage's recovery.

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