I won’t pretend tomorrow’s game between the Texans and Cardinals will be pretty. It almost surely won’t. That’s the natural order of things when the two starting quarterbacks are Blaine Gabbert and Tom Savage.
Nevertheless, there’s a reason “fan” is short for “fanatic,” and Houston Texans fanatics will still watch their squad, no matter how brutal it gets. Plus, tomorrow has the added historical bonus of the Texans beginning the franchise’s Ring of Honor and inducting the first player into same. The fact that the inductee’s name is Andre Johnson should make this fall Sunday a memorable event regardless of how ugly things get between the lines. Here’s how to catch everything.
