Here we are. Another opportunity for the Texans to show the world, including but not limited to their fan base, that they can compete with a good team away from NRG Stadium. Thus far, the 2016 Houston Texans haven't had much success in that regard. But tonight is a new night, and perhaps there's a bit of magic in the air in Mexico City .

What's that?

It's not magic? It's just smog?

No. I choose to believe it's magic, not pollution, I see. You may say I'm a dreamer, but Bill O'Brien says I'm not the only one. I hope some day you'll join us, and the Texans will be 7-3.
