The first preseason of the David Culley Era in Houston ends tomorrow evening at NRG Stadium when the Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers come to town. Sure, many of the starters on both teams will remain on the sidelines, but dudes further down the depth chart are battling for their livelihoods, and this is often the last chance for many players to make an impression.
Plus, it’s football. It’s still delightful. Here’s what you need to know to catch Bucs-Texans tomorrow night:
Kickoff Time: 7 p.m. CDT on Saturday, August 28th.
TV Broadcast: ABC.
Radio Broadcast: Sports Radio 610 (AM), 100.3 (FM), and SXM 227. 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: Bucs Nation.
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 3 p.m. CDT tomorrow, with the first open thread for the game posting promptly at 6:45 a.m. CDT. We'll add game threads if necessary after that, and then we'll have a post-game reaction thread as soon as the game's over.
