Game day for the Houston Texans hosting the Atlanta Falcons has arrived, and here is how to watch the game and listen to it on a variety of media.
The Houston Texans are looking to gain their third win of the season as they are 2-2 entering Week 5. To get that win, the Texans have to defeat the Atlanta Falcons, who are 1-3 overall and haven’t played their best football yet this season.
Though both teams are coming off a loss, the records are deceiving because the Texans are a handful of plays away from being undefeated, while the roster of the Falcons is much better than a one-win team through the first four games of the 2019 NFL season.

Even with it being Week 5, the Texans can’t afford to lose a second straight game, as their race in the AFC South standings is even with all four teams in the division at 2-2 through the first month of the season.
The Falcons are in the same boat as another loss would make it very tough for them to work their way back to the top of the NFC South standings.
