Your 1-1 Houston Texans are off to sunny Californ-I-A this weekend to tangle with the 1-1 Los Angeles Chargers. Given that the game will take place in the Pacific Time Zone, this means we’ll be treated to the unicorn of Texans fandom—the late afternoon kickoff. Whether you use the extra three-plus hours afforded by the non-noon start to be productive or not is up to you, friend. In any event, here’s what you need to know to follow Sunday’s tilt.

In terms of what we'll be doing on game day itself, expect "Countdown To Kickoff" to post at 11:30 a.m. CDT on Sunday, with the first open thread for the game posting promptly at 3:15 p.m. CDT. We'll add live open threads each quarter after that, and then we'll have a post-game reaction thread as soon as the game's over.
