Thursday Night Football: Another Low-Scoring Contest?
I donâ€™t know about you guys, but I canâ€™t wait to watch numberFireâ€™s power-ranked worst team face off against the third-worst one tonight in whatâ€™s always the sloppiest game of the week.
Offensively, weâ€™ve got two quarterbacks who, you could argue, have no reason being on a professional football field. Weâ€™re going to see Chad Henne â€“ a six-year veteran whoâ€™s only starting in the NFL because his team drafted a quarterback whoâ€™s been as useful as a book on how to read. And weâ€™ll also watch Case Keenum, a second-year undrafted passer whoâ€™s playing because his teamâ€™s original starter decided to throw more touchdowns to his opponents than his own wide receivers.
Oh, and donâ€™t forget â€“ weâ€™ll also get to watch a Houston Texans defense that went from being the fourth-best in the NFL a year ago to the 28th-best one so far in 2013.
Other than the outcome being completely irrelevant to the NFLâ€™s playoff picture, is there anything that weâ€™ll be able to take away from the game tonight? Letâ€™s take a look.
