Here is your lineup of today’s NFL preseason action (all times Eastern, so subtract an hour for Houston time):
While Week Three is typically considered a dress rehearsal for the regular season, with many teams featuring starters shaking off that last bit of rust before the regular season begins, there is still a lot of evaluation taking place before the roster cut-downs. Many teams are also protecting their best players to avoid injury in games that don’t lead to championships.
You should expect to see starters through the first quarter or two, but each team is handling it differently. Bill O’Brien and the Houston Texans are planning to play tomorrow’s game similar to the way they approached last week:
Bill O'Brien at the podium. QB rotation vs. Cards will look "similar" to last week. More of a snap count vs. series count.— Drew Dougherty (@DoughertyDrew) August 26, 2016
Will you watch former Texans and Colts player Andre Johnson in his shiny new Titans uniform as Tennessee takes on the Oakland Raiders today? What about taking in a tilt that has the Los Angeles Rams visiting the defending Super Bowl champions as Denver struggles through a quarterback conundrum after losing Brock Osweiler to the Houston Texans? The Chiefs and Bears are facing off in the first game on today's slate, and they represent the Texans' first two games of the regular season, in that respective order, so perhaps that will draw your focus.
Whichever game you choose, please share your comments in this live thread.
