2021 Texans-Panthers regular season (Thursday night football): schedule, game time, TV channel, radio and online streaming
At the end of a 4-12 season, with a roster not exactly bursting with talent, the popular opinion was that the 2021 Houston Texans would be, in a nutshell, stinky. As a result, they’ve been relegated to a single prime-time game on Thursday Night Football this season. But then they looked like a quality football company in their first game of the season against the Jaguars. Houston followed that up by looking even better in the first half on the road against the Browns.
But then Tyrod Taylor got hurt and everything that happened so far seemed to disappear in an instant.
Tonight, Davis Mills, a rookie third-round pick from Stanford, will make his first NFL start. If what we saw in the second half at Cleveland a few days ago was any indication, things are going pretty bad for the home team. However, none of us can see into the future. Maybe Mills will shock us all and it will be a transformative moment in Houston football history. In the unlikely event that does occur, you need to be careful so that you can brag to friends and family that YOU WERE THERE AND NEVER DOUBT. Here’s what you need to know to attend Thursday Night Football this week.
