Football. Is. BACK.

We actually made it. Football season, baby. Real, actual football is on tonight as the Houston Texans take on the Kansas City Chiefs in a matchup of high-flying offenses. Last season, these two teams split their pair of contests with Patrick Mahomes and company getting the last laugh in the playoffs after coming back from 24 points down to move on to the AFC Championship Game.

Deshaun Watson no longer has DeAndre Hopkins to throw to but he still has plenty of speed and versatility around him. His three starting receivers - Brandin Cooks, Will Fuller V, and Kenny Stills - all have immense speed. Randall Cobb was acquired this offseason and he brings reliable slot presence, as well. Combine all of that with dual-threat David Johnson in thee backfield and you’ve got a heck of a dangerous supporting cast. However, injuries will be a theme in this one as Cooks is currently questionable for tonight and while Johnson has struggled with his fair share of bumps and bruises ever since his incredible 2016 season.

No matter the score, or how the game goes, I don’t want to hear ONE COMPLAINT FROM ANYBODY! UNDERSTAND?! It’s football time. Enjoy it.
