Although the world is still in an epidemic—well, I guess we are, anyways—the NFL is sticking to its calendar and schedule. Training camps open in late July. Preseason games get played in August. The Texans and Chiefs open the 2020 season at Arrowhead Stadium on the night of Thursday, September 10th.
Part of the NFL summer ritual is HBO’s “Hard Knocks.” Your Houston Texans were the stars back in 2015. Last season was the Oakland Raiders. This season, it’s the Battle of Los Angeles with the Rams and Chargers having the spotlight put on them.
You’ll get to see a Tyrod Taylor versus Justin Herbert training camp battle, Jared Goff trying to learn how to throw the deep ball, a glimpse of Tyler Higbee’s breakout season, Keenan Allen footwork, the Chargers escaping Philip Rivers’s hall of broken mirrors, Aaron Donald’s pectorals, and Sean McVay trying to find his magic again. All of this will take place in the shadow of their new stadium. The future is now.
Football is getting closer. If there even is any football, I mean.
