Countdown To Kickoff: Texans - Saints

Good afternoon, Texans fans. We’re hunkering down (together, of course) for the Texans game tonight.

If you’re reading this, I trust that you’ve made it through Harvey safe and sound, at least for now. Our Houston Texans are in the Big Easy today, preparing for a game against the New Orleans Saints. This match-up pits a team led by Super Bowl winner Drew Brees against a team helmed by the considerably less-renowned Tom Savage.

Despite the dearth of quarterbacking talent put forward by the Texans since Matt Schaub went off the rails in 2013 and the fact that the Saints have been blessed with the Brees-Payton combination, our teams have won two games and lost two games in the history of the two franchises. This is our only game against the Saints in 2017, so we should make it count.

This is Countdown to Kickoff. Chill here until the first quarter thread opens up at 6:45 p.m. CDT. Discuss whatever (within site rules, of course). How are you holding up? Any thing we should watch for tonight?
