I was going to write out a full recap of  this game, but I thought let’s make this more exciting! Here is an exciting and funny recap of Sunday’s NFL game between the Oakland Raiders and the Houston Texans as told by Raider’s twitter fans. Enjoy!


It all started with some optimism from Raiders fans… well sort of.

Then, on Matt McGloin’s first pass of the game, this happens!

After a defensive stop, Raiders fans see an old friend Shane Lechler and have some choice words. This tweet is definitely my favorite.

Nick Roach proceeds to get an interception on the next Texans drive.

That INT give McGloin and the Raiders great field position for the next drive and McGloin takes advantage.

Next thing I know, Matt McGloin Mania or should I say McLovin Mania started.

Then in the 2nd quarter the Texans Offe- Defe- well team mounts a comeback to take a 17-14 lead. Houston fans are excited! Even some Niners fans join in on the party.

But of course, we knew that Texan jubilation wouldn’t and couldn’t last for long. After all, this is Matt McGloin’s world and we’re just living in it.

The pass was to Mychal Rivera, younger brother of Glee star Naya Rivera, so we knew we would see some Glee fans jump in on the football action. Ummm cousin??? 

Next drive, Rashad Jennings shows why I started him in my fantasy league. 80 yard run, baby.

Then the Texans coaching staff does something unheard of, something beyond belief, they bench Case Keenum and put in Matt Schaub. *gasp*  This sends the twitterverse into a frenzy.


The game ends on an exciting drive all the way down the Raiders goal line. If the Texans score a TD they win, if the Raiders defense gets a HUGE stop, the Raiders will win. I’ll let twitter do the talking.

The Raiders are now only one game back from a playoff spot. Here’s a tweet of my own.

Thanks for reading along!
