Texans defeat Oakland Raiders 27-24

HOUSTON – The Houston Texans beat the Oakland Raiders 27-24. 

This game was a pivotal one as both teams were gunning for the playoffs. The Texans will now play the Jaguars next Sunday in London.

J.J. Watt sustained a shoulder injury and went to the locker room with about 5 ½ minutes left in the second quarter after spending a few minutes in the medical tent. The team announced just before the start of the second half that he wouldn't return, but they did not specify which shoulder he injured.

Watt had three tackles, including one for a loss, and swatted down a pass before he was injured.
