Guide to the game: Players to watch and key questions for Texans-Raiders matchup

It helped tremendously that the defense forced two turnovers in the red zone, but that's part of football. It's difficult to see defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel not being able to devise a game plan to contain Carr after doing it so effectively against RG3.

Fantasy football Week 2 defense rankings: Miami Dolphins up, Cincinnati Bengals down

A look at the best and worst matchups for defenses in fantasy football leagues this week, including projected top 20 rankings: Houston Texans at Oakland: The Raiders rolled up the fewest total yards of any team in the NFL last week, a product of a rookie quarterback and struggling rushing attack. The Texans aren't built to smother a run game like the Jets were last week, but they also benefit from the projected absence of starting running back Maurice Jones-Drew.

Status quo on Maurice Jones-Drew, Nick Roach

Maurice Jones-Drew was not present during the media window Friday at Raiders practice, and middle linebacker Nick Roach was on the field again but was not heavily involved in drills, an indication he's likely to miss his second game with a concussion. Raiders coach Dennis Allen will issue official injury designations following practice, and may opt to have both players as "questionable" although they appear unlikely to play.

Perhaps the most important thing Carr learned was that he belonged on that big stage already at the start of his rookie season even if the end result against the New York Jets wasn't quite what he hoped with a 19-14 loss last Sunday.
