Here is how to watch the Houston Texans at the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Oct. 4.
Both the Houston Texans and Minnesota Vikings are looking for their first win of the 2020 season, and on Sunday at NRG Stadium, the two winless teams will face each other in a game between the AFC South and the NFC North.
This is the fifth meeting between the two teams, and in the previous four games between the Vikings and the Houston Texans, it has been the Vikings who have won all four times. This time around, the two squads are struggling on offense, and both teams have kept their defense on the field way too long in each of the first three games played this season.
The Texans and Vikings are at the bottom of the list in the NFL in time of possession with the Houston Texans 31st in the league at 24:30 average per game, and the Vikings in 32nd place with an NFL-worst time of possession at 22:55 per game.
Houston Texans News: Here is how to watch the game on Sunday

Just looking at the offense, the quarterback comparison goes to the Texans with Deshaun Watson over Kirk Cousins of the Vikings, but the running back comparison goes to Minnesota with Dalvin Cook being ahead of David Johnson.
The defense of the Vikings is battling injuries in the secondary, and the Texans defense has had issues of allowing points as well. In all honesty, for both defenses, when the offense isn’t on the field longer than 24 minutes for an entire game, there isn’t a whole lot the defense can do with that many snaps against them.
This game will be interesting to see which offense is able to break their pattern of quick drives with no points, which will make their defense be able to perform at a higher level. Both of the offenses for the Texans and Vikings owe it to their defenses to have a better effort on Sunday.
The FOX announcers for this game will be Chris Myers, Brock Huard, and Greg Jennings.
