I don't know about you, but after more than six months of no football, I could get used to this hip new fad of your Houston Texans playing every week.

Tonight, the Texans open the gates at NRG Stadium for the first time this season to welcome the New Orleans Saints as the two Gulf Coast teams embark upon their second game of the 2016 NFL preseason. The majority of the starters' snaps for each team are almost sure to be in short supply, but that doesn't mean that nothing's on the line as both squads steam toward finalizing their initial 53-man rosters.
