Arizona Cardinals vs Houston Texans First Half Open Thread

Talk about the Arizona Cardinals vs Houston Texans 2016 preseason game here.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals take on the Houston Texans today at NRG Stadium and they will do so with the closest game to the regular season that you can get in the preseason.

It will be interesting to see how much time the starters get that are coming off injuries. There doesn't need to be too much Tyrann Mathieu or Frostee Rucker, but you'd like to see some of Justin Bethel and a whole lot of Robert Nkemdiche.

How much of the first team offense will we get to see today? Hopefully enough to be in a rhythm.

Houston Texans talk here.

It is the closest game to the regular season, so we are going to try and get a second thread up today, if there is enough participation in this thread.

Update: Tyrann Mathieu, Patrick Peterson, John Brown and Larry Fitzgerald will not play today. So much for the third preseason game being a rehearsal for the regular season.
