J.J. Watt and DeAndre Hopkins are two of the greatest players in Texans history. Both of them are Arizona Cardinals now, and they are virtually certain to annihilate their former employer on Sunday. If you’re looking for a silver lining, all I can offer is that the beating will commence in a rare late afternoon start, so you have a few extra hours to enjoy your day and/or prepare for the sight of Watt and Hopkins wearing a non-Houston jersey while the Cardinals demonstrate what winning football looks like. Here are the details:
Kickoff Time: 3:25 p.m. CDT on Sunday, October 24th.
TV Broadcast: CBS.
Radio Broadcast: Sports Radio 610 (AM), 100.3 (FM), and SXM 384. NFL Game Pass also provides an audio streaming service.
Online Streaming: Viewers in the U.S. can use the NFL Mobile app if they have a Verizon subscription. Everyone else can use the NFL Game Pass subscription service to watch the game.
Opponent Blog: Revenge of the Birds.
Facebook: Sure, you like us. But do you really, really like us?
NFL Network Replay: To be determined.
In terms of what we'll be doing for the game itself, expect "Countdown To Kickoff" to post at 8 a.m. CDT as usual on Sunday. The first open thread for Texans-Cardinals will publish at 3:15 p.m. CDT. We'll add live threads if necessary, and we'll have a post-game reaction thread as soon as the game's over.
