Your Houston Texans play the first preseason game of their 2017 exhibition season tonight in Charlotte, North Carolina. For most of us, this will be our first chance to watch Deshaun Watson live in a Texans uniform, albeit in a limited role with Tom Savage and Brandon Weeden also getting plenty of reps. You won’t want to miss it, and far be it for me not to give you the details of how to catch the game.
Kickoff Time: 6:30 p.m CDT on Wednesday, August 9th.
TV Broadcast: ABC 13 and/or NFL Network. If you’re not in the Houston area, here’s a list of other Texans television broadcast affiliates.
Radio Broadcast: Sports Radio 610 (AM), 100.3 (FM), and Sirius/XM 88. If you’re not in the Houston area, here’s a list of other Texans radio broadcast affiliates. NFL Game Pass also provides an audio streaming service.
Online Streaming: Viewers in the United States can use the NFL Mobile app if they have a Verizon subscription. Anyone else can use the NFL Game Pass subscription service to watch the game.
Opponent Blog: Cat Scratch Reader.
Facebook: Sure, you like us. But do you really, really like us?
NFL Network Replay: To be determined.
In terms of what we'll be doing for the remainder of game day, expect "Countdown To Kickoff" to post at 3 p.m. CDT, with the first open thread for the game posting at 6:15 p.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.
