Open Game Day Thread: Houston Texans v. Denver Broncos

The Houston Texans welcome Peyton Manning and a coaching staff of rather familiar faces back to NRG Stadium in the second week of the preseason tonight. Talk about what's happening on the field as it transpires in Battle Red Blog's live open game thread for Texans-Broncos.

Brian Hoyer had his shot with the first team offense last week in the preseason opener against the 49ers. Tonight, Ryan Mallett gets his. It's quite possible that the performance of one or both of these quarterbacks this evening determines who gets the honor of being under center when the Texans open their regular season against the Chiefs on September 13th.

Oh, and there's Peyton Manning, Gary Kubiak, Wade Phillips, Bill Kollar, several other friendly faces from years past, and the always present battle for roster spots on both teams to keep an eye on in this preseason tilt between Houston and Denver.

This is your first open thread for the Texans' second preseason game of 2015. Share your observations, thoughts, and musings about all things Houston, Texans, and/or Broncos in real time in the Comments below.
