GAMEDAY BLOG: Watson provides spark, not enough for Texans

HOUSTON - The Houston Texans are set for their season-opener Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars as the Houston area continues to recover from Hurricane Harvey.

Kickoff is scheduled for noon at NRG Stadium. You can watch the game on KHOU 11/CBS.

As part of their "Liberty White Out" theme, the Texans will be honoring first-responders for their efforts during Harvey.

The team will also announce their defensive starters with defensive end J.J. Watt wrapping up the line-up. Watt's fundraising efforts have surpassed $30 million as he continues to raise money for those affected by Harvey.
