The Houston Texans face off against division (and historical) foes the Tennessee Titans in Nashville this afternoon, and we’re here on Sunday morning, getting ready for day to unfold.

Most wouldn’t expect a team from Tennessee to be a natural rival for a team from Texas (we’ve got the Southern Oklahoma Silver Stars to loathe and despise, as well as the Neckbeard Horseshoes) but the Titans control the Oilers’ history, and our loyalty is to Houston, and so, we rejoice in their general sh.ttiness any hope it continues for eternity.

These two teams have faced one another 32 times since our inception. The wrong team has won 17 times. In our first decade, the Titans won 12 of the 16 matchups, but since the 2010 season, our guys have won 11 of 16 games played.

This is where we’re counting down until the action begins. The first quarter open thread launches at 11:45 Central Time. Until then, marinate here and discuss anything Texans-focused.
