Your Houston Texans host their first home game of the 2018 preseason tomorrow night against Jimmy Garoppolo (so dreamy!) and the 49ers. It’s football, and the Astros play the A’s at 3:05 p.m. CDT, so there’s really no legitimate reason for you to miss it, right? Here’s how to catch the game.

Kickoff Time: 7 p.m CDT on Saturday, August 18th.

TV Broadcast: ABC.

Radio Broadcast: Sports Radio 610 (AM), 100.3 (FM), and XM 231. NFL Game Pass also provides an audio streaming service.

In terms of what we'll be doing on game day itself, expect "Countdown To Kickoff" to post at 3 p.m. CDT tomorrow, with the first open thread for the game posting at 6:45 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.
