2016 Houston Texans Game Day Live: Houston Texans v. Cincinnati Bengals (First Quarter)

It's the season of perpetual hope, which is as good a time as any to have a quarterback make his first NFL start. Talk about what's happening on the field as it transpires in Battle Red Blog's live open game thread for Texans-Bengals.

Number one indeed.
Number one indeed.
Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

It's Christmas Eve. It's Tom Savage's first start in the NFL. It's Katy native Andy Dalton's homecoming.

Oh, and if the Texans beat the Bengals tonight, they win the AFC South and a playoff berth.

SO MANY FEELINGS. Let's do this thing.
