Countdown To Kickoff: Texans vs. Rams

The Texans will be traveling to Los Angeles to take on the Rams in the third game of the 2018 NFL preseason. Countdown to the action here.

NFL: Houston Texans at Los Angeles Rams Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

This afternoon, our Houston Texans are in Los Angeles at the Coliseum to take on the Rams. The third preseason game is usually when a team’s projected starters play the most snaps, and while the Texans are expecting to play their healthy guys, the Rams will keep several key players out of the action this afternoon.

Sean McVay has already announced that Todd Gurley (RB), Andrew Whitworth (LT), John Sullivan (C), and Gerald Everett (TE) will sit, and McVay wasn’t willing to commit to playing Jared Goff (QB) either.

Bill O’Brien, on the other hand, speaking to the Mothership, said “I could see pretty much anybody that’s healthy, that’s ready to go, could see some time in the game.” Texans fans should get to see Deshaun Watson (QB), J.J. Watt (DE), DeAndre Hopkins (WR), Jadeveon Clowney (OLB) and Tyrann Mathieu (S) in action, as well as WR Keke Coutee’s in-game debut. For many of these players, this will be the last time they play before our opening game against the Patriots.
