The Houston Texans are facing off against the Los Angeles Rams tonight in their third preseason game. Here are three things to watch for tonight.

The Houston Texans pulled off a close victory against the San Francisco 49ers last week. It took a clutch throw and catch from the combination of Joe Webb and Vyncint Smith to pull it off. Tonight, the Houston Texans are looking to improve to 3-0 in the preseason against the LA Rams.

The Houston Texans kick off against the LA Rams in LA at 3:00 p.m. Central Time. The game can be watched on ABC 13 just like last week. If you can’t watch, you can tune in at Sports Radio 610, the home of Houston Sports Radio or on 100.3 FM, The Bull. Here’s all the info.

This is the last time the Texans will match up against the Rams this season. The Texans’ will be matching up against the NFC East this year rather than the NFC West. So, this will be the only time these two teams will see each other unless they meet in the Super Bowl.

When the Texans played the Rams last year and they got absolutely decimated, 33-7. But thankfully, this is a preseason game and won’t count towards anything. However, this is a huge make or break week for some of the players on the roster as O’Brien and the staff get ready to narrow the roster from 75 to 53.

So, a lot is riding for this team in game three of the preseason. This is the best team the Houston Texans have played this year so far. Here are three things that I expect to see tonight.
