Countdown To Kickoff: Houston Texans v. Philadelphia Eagles

It's game day for your Houston Texans, which means it's game day on Battle Red Blog, which means you should probably spend those last few painful hours/minutes/seconds before the Texans and Eagles kick off with fellow fanatics in BRB's Countdown to Kickoff thread.

These gentlemen support their team.

Your Houston Texans are off next week, so the results of today's game will determine whether they head into their bye winners of two straight and holders of a 5-4 record or whether they'll have to chew on a loss and the accompanying losing record through nine games for two weeks. If the Texans do harbor dreams of playing in January, today's contest against the Eagles is the kind of game they have to win.

Plus, it's Battle Red Day, so a Texans loss today could make a certain team color themed website look bad. AND WE CAN'T HAVE THAT. WE DO A FINE JOB OF LOOKING BAD ON OUR OWN, THANKYOUVERYMUCH; WE DON'T NEED ANY HELP FROM THE FOOTBALL TEAM WE OBSESS OVER. GREAT...NOW MY CAPS LOCK IS STUCK.

The first open game thread for Texans-Eagles will post at 11:45 a.m. CDT. Until then, share your thoughts, hopes, dreams, and nightmares about the Texans-Eagles game and/or the prospects for the Texans' 2014 season here.
