Countdown To Kickoff: Saints v. Texans

J.J. owns the sideline. - Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Here's your open thread to discuss the big preseason tilt between the Houston Texans and New Orleans Saints mere hours before the game kicks off at 3 p.m. Spend that time with fellow fans at Battle Red Blog.

Today marks the final preseason game your Houston Texans will play at Reliant Stadium in 2013. It's also the "best" preseason game, as the starters will play more this afternoon than any other point in the preseason. To add intrigue, you've got the battle over the QB2 gig to keep an eye on this afternoon. What I'm saying is that even if you're not a fan of exhibition football, you'll want to watch the Texans and Saints play at 3 p.m. CDT today.

As we stare longingly at the clock, praying for those final few hours to pass so we can watch Texans football again, I invite you to use this thread to pass the time. This is the place for you to commiserate with like-minded fans. Chat about the game, the Saints, the Texans' upcoming season, the Saints' chances in the NFC South, what you hope to see this afternoon, and anything else Texans or Saints-related.

The first open thread for the game will post at 2:45 p.m. CDT.
