Saturday 8/18/2018 7:00 PM
Let the tailgating begin this weekend as the Texans open its home pre-season. The pre-season kicked off Thursday, August 9th, 2018 in Kansans City with the Texans winning 17-10.
This weekend they're up against San Francisco 49ers.
The NFL franchise won their non-standinggame in seasonal rankings, now we'll see how the team's rookies and want-a-be stars will emerge during the regular season.
If you didn't see the game on television last week, ESPN's Sarah Barshop reported, "Deshaun Watson saw game action for the first time since he tore his ACL in early November. He only played for one series and completed one pass for four yards, but achieved the most important goal for the Texans: exiting the game without an injury."
Bishop went on to say, "Both of the Texans' first half touchdowns belong to third-round pick Jordan Akins. The tight end has impressed during camp and was described by head coach Bill O'Brien as mature, smart and a really hard worker. The Texans have a group of young tight ends competing for playing time during training camp, including sixth-round pick Jordan Thomas and third-year player Stephen Anderson. Ryan Griffin is expected to be the starting tight end."
