We did it. Well, nearly.
An offseason unlike any other football fans have experienced this side of 1918 has come and, as of tomorrow night, gone. Your Houston Texans will open the NFL’s 2020 regular season slate tomorrow night at Arrowhead Stadium against the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs. Deshaun Watson versus Patrick Mahomes, under the lights and in front of a national television audience that should be positively giddy about the prospect of football resuming. Below is all you need to know to ensure you don’t miss a second.
Kickoff Time: 7:20 p.m CDT on Thursday, September 10th.
TV Broadcast: NBC.
Radio Broadcast: Sports Radio 610 (AM), 100.3 (FM), and SXM 225. NFL Game Pass also provides an audio streaming service.
