Countdown To Kickoff: Texans-Chiefs

It’s several hours before the game starts, so that gives us plenty of time to handle our pregame rituals. Gather here to await kickoff.

NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at Houston Texans
I’d like to see some of this today, pretty please.

So this afternoon, our Texans welcome the Chiefs. The last time these two teams played, Brian Hoyer proved that he is dogsh.t as a quarterback and J.J. Watt finally acknowledged that he really is a human being, not a football-playing cyborg, and succumbed to his numerous injuries. This time, Brian Hoyer is a horrible memory and Watt is knocking the rust off, surrounded by other players who can help out.

This is where we should gather to discuss our pregame rituals (bust out your lucky football socks, y’all), announce our recipes for gameday (homemade grilled chicken burritos with quinoa and spinach, paired with a Moscato in this household), who you’ve got going in your fantasy matchups, or simple things like the overall awesomeness of Lamar Miller, Braxton Miller and/or Whitney Mercilus.

Chill out here until other threads open up.

The Inactives will be posted about 90 minutes before the game, as soon as I get it published. I’ll post a link in the comments here.

The first game thread will open up at 11:45 a.m., at which point this thread will close.
