The New England Patriots host the Houson Texans tonight on Thursday Night Football (TNF) to commence Week 3 of the 2016 NFL football season. Tonight’s NFL game can be found either the CBS Sports or NFL Network TV channels, and you can also watch Patriots vs Texans online free live streaming including Twitter as well.
With Tom Brady sitting the first four games, backup Jimmy Garoppolo finally got a chance to start and impressed in wins over the Cardinals and Dolphins. In the second game he injured the AC joint in his right throwing shoulder on a vicious hit into the ground and won’t be on the field tonight.
When we watch Texans vs Patriots live streaming or on TV, rookie Jacoby Brissett will be the lone active quarterback on the roster. His backup will likely be Julian Edelman, the awesome slot receiver who has some past experience under center.
If Brissett stinks and Edelman is forced into action then Edelman won’t have himself to throw to.
Meanwhile the Texans roll out their new quarterback, Brock Osweiller. All the free agent from Denver has done is go 41 of 68 for 499 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions in his first two Houston games. The Texans won both.
Get ready for Thursday Night Football featuring Houston vs New England on multiple TV or online streaming choices. There’s no excuse not to catch the game that will see one of these teams move to 3-0.
