The hardest part about doing these Game Day Open Threads is writing the second-quarter post so that it is ready when the second quarter kicks off. As I sit here, the game hasn't even started, so I have no idea what the first quarter will bring. That kind of struggle might dissuade lesser men from writing the post so early. But not me. Not when we can go Mad Libs style!
The first quarter was [adverb] [verb] for your Houston Texans. The Jets' offense [could/could not] move the ball against the [adjective] Texans defense. When [Jets player] managed to [fumble/score/shart himself on television], you could sense the momentum [changing/building/not existing]. The big question is whether [Texans player] will be able to [build upon/shake off] that late [touchdown/fumble/bout of idiocy]. I want to believe that he will, but we all know that the Texans are capable of [scoring points/pooping the bed] without warning.
This is your second-quarter open thread. Supply your adverbs, adjectives, and witticisms below.
