I’m glad the Texans are coming off a brief respite, as they are about to embark upon a hazardous and possibly defining three-game stretch of their 2019 season. Things begin with a Sunday afternoon tilt in Baltimore against the white-hot Ravens. Deshaun Watson versus Lamar Jackson is precisely the kind of match-up that begs for a flex to Sunday Night Football, but the Texans’ contest against the Colts on Thursday Night Football just four days later likely played a role in the NFL deciding not to move this game to prime-time.
Although it won’t be under the lights of SNF, two of the league’s young star signal-callers will be on display this weekend in a pivotal tilt for a potential inside path to a first round bye in the AFC Playoffs. Here’s how to catch it:
Kickoff Time: 12 p.m. CST on Sunday, November 17th.
TV Broadcast: CBS.
Radio Broadcast: Sports Radio 610 (AM), 100.3 (FM), and SXM 227. NFL Game Pass also provides an audio streaming service.

In terms of what we'll be doing for the game itself, expect "Countdown To Kickoff" to post at 8 a.m. CST on Sunday, with the first open thread for the game posting promptly at 11:45 a.m. CST on Sunday. We'll add live open threads each quarter after that, and then we'll have a post-game reaction thread as soon as the game's over.
