The Oakland Raiders will travel to Houston, Texas next week to take on the Texans (9-7) in the AFC Wild Card round of the playoffs. After falling to the Denver Broncos 24-6, and the Kansas City Chiefs defeating the San Diego Chargers 37-27, the Silver and Black dropped to the fifth seed in the conference.

Earlier this season, the Raiders traveled to Mexico City to square off against the Texans at Estadio Azteca in a Week 11 showdown. In a tightly-contested battle, the Raiders came out on top 27-20 and will look to repeat when the opposing teams duke it out next week.

The game will start at 1:35 p.m. PT and take place at NRG Stadium Saturday, January 7, and can be viewed on ESPN or ABC.
