2016 NFL Preseason Live: Houston Texans v. San Francisco 49ers (Third Quarter)

New, comments

Coming out of the half, the Texans trail by 6 points 13-7. Can they come back in the completely pointless game against the Santa Clara 49ers?

I understand it's preseason. I understand that the game doesn't count, that it has little meaning except to see what the Texans backups are capable of.

Frankly, I'm not sure how we're only down six in this completely meaningless game.

But holy mother of crap, if this is what the backups have to offer (again, I'm really trying not to overreact), the starters can't afford injuries, not even an ingrown toenail because woof, that second quarter was hard to watch.

The second/third stringers let Thad Lewis, Thad-Freakin'-Lewis, run roughshod over them.

Anyway, the third quarter starts now, so bring the conversation here. I'll be back after I down a couple of hard root beers to watch the rest of this game.
