Sunday’s tilt against the Broncos in Denver was already full of quality story lines as the Texans look to improve to 6-3. Tuesday’s big trade of Demaryius Thomas to Houston, however, has pushed most of the other stuff to the background. Thomas will play the first game of his NFL career for a team other than the Broncos against the Broncos. That’s unique, if not outright historic.
There’s no way you, devoted Texans fan that you are, would miss Thomas’ first game wearing steel blue, battle red, and liberty white, so here’s how to ensure you catch every second of the rare late afternoon kick for the good guys as they attempt to increase their lead atop the AFC South.
