Before the season started, if you had told me your Houston Texans were starting T.J. Yates against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 13, I probably would have reacted with a look of stunned disbelief, shook my head, punched a wall, cried because my hand hurt, fell to my knees, and started banging my head against the ground until I knocked myself out.
Now? I simply affix a steely glare in the direction of Reliant Stadium and mutter, "So be it." Zeno would be proud.
Let the T.J. Yates Era begin, friends. This is the first of your open game threads for Falcons-Texans.
