Preseason game number two is set to kick off at 7 p.m. CDT when the Texans and Lions turn practice into kind of sort of real football.

Will Houston’s offensive line be able to handle a rowdy Lions’ front that includes A’Shawn Robinson, Damon Harrison, Trey Flowers, and blitzing linebackers. Will Joe Webb be able to keep his guts inside his belly? Will DeAndre Hopkins get the chance to sword fight against Darius Slay? Can the Texans corral a run heavy rushing attack led by a mediocre offensive line and Kerryon Johnson? None of these questions will probably be answered because it’s the preseason, but we will sit, and watch and wait and try and sort of find out.

The first quarter open thread will be posted at 6:45 p.m. Until then, you can hang out and chat here.
