HOUSTON — The Houston Texans lost to the Raiders 27-20 Monday night in Mexico City.
After holding a tie of for the greater part of the second half, the Raiders came threw completing two touchdowns in the final minutes of the fourth quarter. The team was hosted by the Raiders at Estadio Azteca. It was the first Monday Night Football game to be played outside the United States.
It’s Oakland’s first straight win since 2002.
Houston’s Brock Osweiler had to deal with an unusual distraction during the game as someone with a green laser frequently shined it on him after he dropped back to pass in an act more familiar in soccer games played at the stadium than NFL games.
The Raiders are now 8-2 while the Texans are 6-4.
