2018 Houston Texans Game Day Live: Texans vs. Jets (First Quarter)

NFL on a Saturday? Well this is sweeter than a Pixy Stix at a Dixie Chicks concert.

With their game against the Jets today, the Texans have hit the cycle for possible days to play an NFL game. This season, they’ve played on a Thursday, Sunday, Monday, and now Saturday for arguably the weirdest schedule in the NFL this season. Not only that, they are traveling to New York Jersey to play in dismal weather against a dismal opponent.

The Jets are currently tied for last in the AFC East with a 4-9 record. They are fresh off their first win in seven games. Head coach Todd Bowles and Co. are knee-deep in a reconstruction of the team, but they may not last long enough to see the full plan come to fruition. The Jets finally have their franchise QB, who when not leading the league in interceptions (15), has the 30th passer rating in the NFL. Sam Darnold is dealing with a foot sprain, so the he may be apprehensive to leave the pocket against the Texans’ pressure.

Here’s to a good first quarter. Comment away.
