4:13-Gametime. Starting defense gets the introductions and it's down to business. I'll be watching Anthony Bryant who was activated in light of Albert Haynesworth's deactivation. Bryant will get some time at nose tackle and he has drawn solid reviews through the preseason.
Also, can Donovan McNabb get the offense in a rhythm? Can the secondary receivers step up? Will Fred Davis emerge?
The offense will have to score more than six points today if the team wants to be in it at the end.
We are about 30 minutes from kick-off at Fedex Field and the big news is Albert Haynesworth will be inactive. Here's the complete list of inactives for both teams.
It's a sunny 85 degrees in the Nation's Capital and fans are starting to pile into the stadium.
My Prediction: I'm 1-0 after last week, but this week I have to pick against the Redskins. They haven't convinced me they can stop the run, and Houston's rushing attack is at full go after last week. Not a good match-up and it will be the difference. Texans win: 27-17.
