Before a national audience on NBC and beneath the bright lights of NRG Stadium this evening, your 7-4 Houston Texans shall battlefight the 10-1 Patriots of New England on Sunday Night Football. History says this will merely be the latest painful example of Bill O’Brien getting embarrassed by the man who gave him his start in the NFL. Yet the Texans employ Deshaun Watson, so things are never as bleak as they may initially seem.
This here thread is where you can share your fears or entirely irrational hopes about what awaits the Texans tonight. The first quarter thread for the game itself will post at 7:05 p.m. CST. Until then, the floor is yours.
