Dejected as we may be by the absence of Whitney Mercilus and J.J. Watt from the rest of the NFL season, the 2017 campaign of your Houston Texans rolls on. This week, the Cleveland Browns come to NRG Stadium. Deshaun Watson is surely eager to show Hue Jackson what the Browns missed out on by deciding to pass on the Clemson star in the 2017 NFL Draft, and I imagine the Texans are glad to come along for the ride. Here’s what you need to know about Sunday’s tilt.

In terms of what we'll be doing on game day itself, expect "Countdown To Kickoff" to post at 8 a.m. CDT on Sunday, with the first open thread for the game posting at 11:45 a.m. CDT. We'll add live open threads as necessary, and then we'll have a post-game reaction thread as soon as the game's over.
