2016 Houston Texans Game Day Live: Houston Texans v. San Diego Chargers (First Quarter)

Can the Houston Texans stretch their home record to 6-0 in 2016 today? Talk about what's happening on the field as it transpires in Battle Red Blog's live open game thread for Texans-Chargers.

Your Houston Texans have yet to lose a game at NRG Stadium thus far this season. That seems likely to change at some point, but it'd sure be neat if it wasn't this week. With the Colts' loss to the Steelers on Thanksgiving night, beating the Chargers this afternoon would give the Texans a two-game lead over Indianapolis in the AFC South race. The Titans also enter their Week 12 game against the Bears with a record of 5-6 before getting next week off, so Tennessee is far from out of the running for the division crown either. Defending home turf today would be huge for Bill O'Brien & Co. Let's see if they can do it.
