Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) -
Here's some advice for starting a defense/special team - go against the Oakland Raiders.
In Week 2 that means starting the Houston Texans.
Despite the respectable job done by rookie quarterback Derek Carr in his first start, the Raiders produced just 158 yards of offense. Their running game with Maurice Jones-Drew and Darren McFadden was non-existent and their receivers as a group are mediocre ... at best.
The Texans throttled a much better offense in Week 1, holding Robert Griffin III, Alfred Morris, DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon to just six points.
Tampa Bay faces another struggling offense in the St. Louis Rams. They scored only six point last week, both off the strong leg of Greg Zuerlein. The Bucs lost a tough defensive struggle with Carolina, but should be able to keep the Rams in single digits.
A strong Arizona defense faces a turnover-prone Eli Manning and the New York Giants. The Giants turned it over twice in the opener after a league-worst 44 turnovers in 2013.
