The slog that is the 2019 NFL preseason comes to an end tonight for your beloved Texans at NRG Stadium as they host the Rams in the fourth and final game of the exhibition season. While the caliber of play won’t be on par with what we’d expect to see in the NFL Playoffs, I would invite you to remember this:
Annual Reminder: Guys playing in 4th preseason game tonight are likely the best football players EVER from their hometown.— Ross Tucker (@RossTuckerNFL) August 29, 2019
For most, tonight is last time they will ever put a helmet and shoulder pads on & by Saturday they'll realize their lifelong dream/goal did not come true.
Tonight matters to a whole lot of people, even if we fans don’t always think it affects the product we watch on Sundays.
The first quarter thread will post at 6:45 p.m. CDT. Until then, share your thoughts on the Texans, Rams, and whatever else that’s football-related below.
