OAKLAND: There's been much talk about tailoring the running game to Darren McFadden again. The Raiders were slowly fazing out the zone-blocking looks last year, but this year they figure to go back to a man/power system full time. New offensive coordinator Greg Olson has made McFadden his No. 1 priority, and they'll ride him heavily as long as he stays healthy. Rashad Jennings, despite a brutal year in Jacksonville, will likely be Oakland's No. 2 back. On third downs, they'll occasionally let Marcel Reese stay in as the lone back. Matt Flynn will fit Olson's passing game well, as it's a West Coast offense similar to Green Bay's and Seattle's. They will use a lot more in the way of quick-hitters and catch-and-run stuff, which bodes well for big receivers like Rod Streater and Juron Criner. Denarius Moore remains their most talented receiver, but his greatest asset is his deep speed, which doesn't mesh well with Flynn's dink-and-dunk arm. McFadden will be used heavily in the screen game. There's no telling what they'll do with their tight ends, because they don't have a starting-caliber TE on the roster. While they'd like to go with McFadden near the goal line, the Raiders will likely have to do a good amount of throwing due to their overmatched line. The Raiders didn't do anything to address their weak pass rush that had the second-fewest sacks in the NFL (25), and actually let DEs Desmond Bryant and Matt Shaughnessy (7.5 combined sacks) both walk. However, they did sign two key starters -- WLB Kevin Burnett and MLB Nick Roach -- plus rookie SLB Sio Moore. Oakland also added quality players in the secondary in rookie CB D.J. Hayden, CB Tracy Porter, CB Mike Jenkins and S Charles Woodson to prevent another season of allowing 28 passing TD with just 11 INT.
HOUSTON: The cornerstone of Houston's offense remains its zone-blocking running scheme, though the club did slip from first to ninth in the NFL in terms of run/pass ratio. The offensive line has steadily developed into one of the NFL's best, a mobile group that specializes in (for now, still legal) cut blocking. It's a one-cut system for their backs, where Arian Foster thrives. The Texans seem to have lost some faith in Ben Tate, as Foster played a league-leading 847 snaps last season. The Texans use a conservative West Coast passing game that works off play-action but doesn't do a lot downfield. Andre Johnson is the centerpiece, a guy who gets moved around and is almost always Matt Schaub's first look. Tight end Owen Daniels still serves as the default No. 2 target, often working off Johnson on the same side of the field. Rookie DeAndre Hopkins will be more of a field stretcher on the opposite side. Foster was utilized less in the passing game last year, though Houston could look to rekindle the screen game considering Schaub's inability to get the ball deep. Houston is one of the NFL's most run-heavy red zone teams. Foster led the league in touchdowns of less than 10 yards last year (14) and had 71.9 percent of Houston's touches inside the 10. Just the presence of Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt (NFL-best 20.5 sacks, 39 TFL) is enough to make the Texans a strong defense, and the addition of playmaking FS Ed Reed (9 career TD) and the healthy return of ILB Brian Cushing makes them truly elite. CBs Johnathan Joseph and Kareem Jackson are stellar shutdown corners. Versatile Danieal Manning should have little trouble shifting from free safety to strong safety, and the team expects big things from OLB Whitney Mercilus in his second season.

(UPDATES with Raiders QB Pryor out)

*Raiders-Texans Preview* ========================


Two weeks after suffering a mini-stroke, Houston's Gary Kubiak expects to return to coaching.

Kubiak has a bevy of arduous tasks in Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders, most notably trying to prevent the Texans from extending a franchise-worst losing streak to eight games.

Kubiak returned to work on a limited basis Monday - eight days after he collapsed at halftime of a 27-24 loss to Indianapolis - and was back at practice Wednesday.

"It just feels great to be back," he said. "You have a true appreciation for the opportunity that you have and the opportunity to be around the players ... and the chance to do my job again.

"I'm on kind of a different schedule - kind of hard to adjust to, but I'm adjusting to it. I'm listening to (the doctors)."

Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips led the team in Kubiak's absence this past Sunday, and the Texans (2-7) were edged 27-24 by Arizona for a seventh straight defeat.

"I wasn't able to watch the whole thing," Kubiak said. "I watched parts of it. Very tough. I hurt with them. It was just hard to watch. It's hard to sit there and watch a football game when you've been there the whole time for the last 30 years."

That performance led to some disparaging comments from nine-time Pro Bowl safety Ed Reed and he was cut Tuesday in the middle of a lackluster season in which he lost his starting job. Houston also placed another Pro Bowler, running back Arian Foster, on injured reserve.

Foster sat out against Arizona because of an injured back and was slated to undergo season-ending surgery this week. His replacement, Ben Tate, gained 56 yards on 15 carries while dealing with four broken ribs.

The Texans couldn't hold a three-point halftime advantage last Sunday and Case Keenum's 5-yard pass to Andre Johnson with 4:34 remaining was the only scoring play in the final two quarters. That came after Houston blew a 21-3 halftime lead in the loss to Indianapolis on Nov. 3.

"Maybe it's our mindset. I'm not really sure," Tate said of the second-half struggles. "Maybe we've just got to learn to put our foot on the gas."

Keenum had three TDs in his third start since replacing Matt Schaub but completed a season-low 51.2 percent of his passes for 201 yards.

"This is probably the most frustrating," Johnson said. "I guess because you have the team. You have the pieces in place and for some reason, we just can't get it done. You just wish things could be better."

The Texans will try to take a step back toward respectability against the AFC's only winless road team. Oakland (3-6) suffered its fourth defeat away from home last Sunday, 24-20 to the New York Giants.

Quarterback Terrelle Pryor played with a sprained ligament in his right knee, and the Raiders gained a season-low 213 yards. He suffered a setback at practice on Friday and has been ruled out, giving undrafted rookie Matt McGloin his first NFL start.

McGloin, who entered training camp fourth on the depth chart, completed seven of 15 passes for 87 yards in his only appearance, a 49-20 loss to Philadelphia on Nov. 3.

"If you're injured and can't help the football team, it's best that we have somebody else in there," coach Dennis Allen said. "When you watch the game, I didn't look at it and think it was really the limitation that held us back."

The last time the Raiders faced the Texans, a 25-20 win on Oct. 9, 2011, Pryor was serving the final contest of a five-game suspension as a rookie for violations he committed at Ohio State. Oakland picked off Schaub twice for only its second victory in seven all-time meetings.
