The Houston Texans take on the Carolina Panthers on Wednesday, Aug. 9 in the 2017 NFL preseason. Here’s all the info you need to watch.
Though the Hall of Fame Game has been played, the 2017 NFL preseason really gets underway on Wednesday night. Football fans will be treated to a delightful contest between two of the most high-profile rookies for the season. That’s what will be on display with the Houston Texans as they visit Bank of America Stadium to take on the Carolina Panthers on Wednesday, Aug. 9.
For the Texans their rookie in question is obviously quarterback Deshaun Watson. He’ll sit behind starter Tom Savage to begin the opening preseason game. However, considering that the Texans gave up a ton of draft capital to move up to No. 12 in the 2017 draft and take him, he’ll likely see plenty of work.
His adversary on Wednesday night in Charlotte, NC will be rookie running back Christian McCaffrey. The Panthers selected the Stanford product with the No. 8 pick in the draft. Now they hope that he can help take the offense to a new level, along with second-round selection Curtis Samuel.
Both teams should look to compete for their divisions this season, the Texans in the AFC South, the Panthers in the NFC South. With that said, each squad has questions that remain. They’ll look to start answering those questions on Wednesday night.
