Since the Texans are filling up the late night slot for Week Five, this means that the early kickoffs are all yours to enjoy as you see fit. I’m going to put the Redzone Channel on in the background while I play some CK2 (Crusader Kings 2) and fret over my fantasy team (currently 1-3 in the BRB Writers Dynasty league).
For those of you who don’t care about fantasy, there are plenty of games that matter to the Texans. All three of the Texans division rivals will be playing in the early slate today, with the Colts taking on the 49ers, the Jaguars taking on the Steelers, and the Titans (who will reportedly be without Marcus Mariota) going up against the Dolphins. If all three of the other AFC South teams lose today and the Texans knock off the undeafeated Chiefs tonight, the Texans will take the outright lead in the AFC South.
There are your storylines worth watching for the early kickoffs, Texans fans. This is your open thread to enjoy them.
