Sunday has finally arrived, so with that that means it is time for the Houston Texans to gain their first win in a couple weeks, and to avoid a three-game losing streak in the process.

The Texans will take on the San Francisco 49ers tonight and though this isn’t a must-win game for either team, it is a game where both teams need to show improvement.

For the Texans, it is noted they need to refresh their offensive play calling of sorts and shake things up a little bit, as many have written this week they’ve become predictable in their play selection.

They, the Texans, are coming off two consecutive losses, and a third one wouldn’t completely destroy the season, it would put a damper on the season headed into next week’s game, as they would fall to 2-3 overall. The same comment about the overall records could be said about the 49ers because they are also 2-2 on the season, and a loss would drop them to below the .500 mark.

As the game is still a few hours away, here are some links that can help you in the wait until Sunday Night Football kicks off this evening.
