Los Angeles Rams vs. Houston Texans: Q&A with Battle Red Blog The Los Angeles Rams are set for preseason game #3 with the Houston Texans coming to LA. As this is likely the only game that we’ll see much of the starting lineup Brandin Cooks Jersey
, this is perhaps the only preseason action to get a glimpse of what’s to come in 2018.To get a better understanding of what we’re facing, I linked up with Matt Weston from Battle Red Blog, the SB Nation community for Houston Texans fans.How are things looking on offense? Obviously, the Deshaun Watson injury was a tragedy not just for yall but for fans of football in general...DESPITE CERTAIN ENTITIES HAVING CLAIMED WATSON YEARS AGO WHICH WE EXPECT TO SEE YOU IN COURT OVER, DEAR SIR! That aside, how is he coming back into the side? What if anything have you learned about the 2018 offense from the first two games?How about on defense?Who from the depth should Rams fans be prepared for? Who has stepped up on both sides from the second and third strings and deep into the second halves of the preseason?BONUS: It’s Year 5 for Bill O’Brien. Yall were first in the NFL in yards allowed in 2016. Yall were dead last in points allowed in 2017. Clearly, volatility is something you guys are going to have to deal with. But what is 2018 about for the Houston Texans? Is it about grooming Watson and keeping him healthy to lead this franchise for the next X years? Is it about getting to the playoffs and keeping O’Brien on the sidelines? Is it about J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney and...who? What are you guys expecting and preparing to see?Thanks to Matt for the time. Decent day of college football today. You’ve got headliner games with tons of potential trip-ups for ranked teams with some really interesting stuff throughout.Here’s how I’d manage today’s schedule.#2 Clemson Tigers at Florida St. Seminoles12pm ET, ABCNo Authentic Ramik Wilson Jersey
, FSU isn’t bringing this one the prestige of recent years. Yes, it’s still Clemson-FSU. And yes, it still has HUGE playoff implications.QB Trevor Lawrence has now taken over things for Clemson to build his early resume on track for a #1 overall selection in the 2021 NFL Draft and will likely get most of the general focus, but draftniks have tons to look out for. For Los Angeles Rams fans, there’s an absolute ton to pick up here. There’s a 100% chance that one of the players in this game gets bandied about in draft season in four months.Backup: You can make a decent case for popping over to FOX to catch Wisconsin-Northwestern, but I’d recommend holding off for two weeks when the Badgers take on Penn St. Nittany Lions for draft scouting on a level that rivals Clemson-FSU.#7 Georgia Bulldogs at #9 Florida Gators3:30pm ET, CBSThe World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party? Yes, please.Again...too much to scout all over the place. But that’s kind of the point. Just soak in the observations here with plenty of talent in the first three rounds for the 2019 NFL Draft.Backup: It’s not the best game overall Youth Cooper Kupp Jersey
, nor is it the best game for general scouting. But for Rams-specific looks for next April, Kentucky-Missouri would be a good look.#16 Texas A&M Aggies at Mississippi St. Bulldogs7pm ET, ESPNThis one’s a bit more finicky, but you’ve got easy work here for Rams fans.Backup: Texas-Oklahoma St. is gonna be strange, beautiful, Texahoma football. You’ve got ripe conditions for an upset and/or a classic.There are some really fun games that aren’t draft-laden that I can’t endorse for NFL fans (#14 Washington St. at #24 Stanford, Oregon St. at Colorado, Hawaii at Fresno St.). There are draft-relevant games that aren’t gonna be any fun that I can’t endorse for football fans (Arizona St. at USC http://www.ramsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-john-johnson-jersey
, #15 Washington at Cal, Tennessee at South Carolina).So overall, a good day of football!Here’s your watch guide with full schedule, TV listing and stream options.
