The Houston Texans were led by Ron Dayne and Sage Rosenfels as they beat Oakland 24-17. Dayne carried the ball 21 times for 122 yards and one score while Rosenfels connected with Andre Davis on a 42-yard touchdown pass midway in the final quarter.
The win ups the Texans record to 4-5 while the loss drops Oakland to 2-6. The Raiders have lost four straight since a two-game winning streak in late September. The win puts an end to a three-game skid for the Texans.
