Countdown To Kickoff: Texans v. Raiders

That's Jake Byrne. Given how this season has gone, why not feature him in a post? - Jennifer Hilderbrand-USA TODAY S

As we wait for the Texans and Raiders to take the field at Reliant Stadium this afternoon, stop by Battle Red Blog's "Countdown To Kickoff" thread to add your two cents about the game.

I cannot remember the last Texans game that I was less excited for. Things have gotten so bad that I find myself having an inner monologue that features me saying things like, "Hey, you'll be dying for any football come March" and "Even bad Houston Texans football is better than no Houston Texans football."

That's what the Texans' 2013 season has reduced me to. Nevertheless, we press on, including but not limited to BRB's Countdown To Kickoff today.

This the place for you to talk about the Texans, the Raiders, what you hope to see this afternoon, the 2014 NFL Draft, and anything else Texans or Raiders-related as we wait for those final minutes to tick by before kickoff.

The first open thread for the game will post at 11:45 a.m. CDT. Until then, make with the gameday chatter here.
