Finally…THE END! The light at the end of the tunnel. Who watched Teddy Bridgewater last night?!? What a performance. He completed 35 of 45 passes for 446 yards and 4 touchdowns. I hope you enjoyed because he could be under center week one in a liberty white jersey. But that talk is for after the game. For three hours today, we get to watch the biggest disappointment in the NFL either screw themselves out of selecting ANY player they want or do what they do best and lose. Here’s what to watch for in today’s Texans/Titans game!

LP Field, Nashville, TN
- It All Starts At Quarterback - No one know who will be the starting for QB for the Texans in just a few hours. Case Keenum has been bothered by a thumb injury and he’s a game-time decision. He will likely start if he’s healthy, otherwise it will be Matt Schaub under center. Keenum has already started eight games this season so it’s only right that he let Schaub start the last one.
- Andre Johnson - As mentioned on Friday, Andre Johnson has been one of the only bright spots on the Texans this season, and Johnson can do something special this Sunday. Johnson needs just 142 receiving yards for a 1,500 yard season, which would be the fourth of his career. Johnson is currently tied with Marvin Harrison for three such seasons, and if he gets to 1,500, he would break the record for most season of 1,500+ receiving yards.
- Jonathan Grimes - Grimes is the fourth starting running back for the Texans this season, and sixth one to receive a carry. Arian Foster, Ben Tate, and Deji Karim are out for the season, and Dennis Johnson is questionable. This is Grimes’ first start in his career and he will be backed up by Ray Graham (Texans seventh RB this season), and Chad Spann (Texans eight RB this season).
- Redskins v.s. Giants - If the Texans lose this week they secure the first overall pick. If they win (HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA) then they need a Redskins win to keep the first overall pick. A Texans win and Redskins loss puts the Texans at second overall. What will you be rooting for?
