Houston and New England are set to get going in a little more than a hour. I can’t wait for this decade to come to an end. Give me a silly hat and a sequin dress. Inactives, the last piece of the puzzle before it does, are now known.
Here’s who won’t be playing for Houston.
Keke Coutee is inactive again tonight. In a game against a historically great pass defense, Houston needs every receiver it has, yet sure enough, still, Coutee is on the bench. Gareon Conley will also be missing against a Patriots’ passing attack that utilizes a wide variety of options. I guess Carlos Watkins’ hamstring never got better. And Houston will be without Angelo Blackson as they try and stop New England’s power run attack.
New England filled an airplane with sick players. Despite this, their starters are still healthy and playing. Great. An almost break that didn’t break for Houston. Some things never change. The only big miss is Jason McCourty, but New England has, like, twenty-five solid defensive players anyways.
The Texans and Patriots are set to kickoff at 7:20 p.m. Can’t wait.
