The Houston Texans have their moment to shine and this season it’s in prime time. With night game schedules, the team doesn’t necessarily have to watch closely as they have played on Saturday nights during preseason games. In the regular season, however, they own the Sunday noon time slot, which is considered a cursed slot because they haven’t done very well.
For the first time, the team will try Monday night soccer and see if it suits the schedule better. If the team wins this particular game, it will not only improve their standing, but also improve the image of the franchise on a national scale. The team realizes that no matter how much offense they put into their games, the public still doesn’t see how much effort they put into a particular game. The reason behind this is that the Texans aren’t really in a lot of national games.
Although the public views the Texans as a weak team, they were not given a chance to prove themselves. Now that they have the prime time spot for their game, they can finally show what they can do on the field. As a team, the Texans rank fourth in total offense. If the Houston Texans want to put on a terrific performance to wow the nation, they must prepare to put on a great performance against really great players who know what it’s like to play on a Monday night.
Of the Texans, 29 players have yet to play Monday Night Football. Backup defensive tackle Jeff Zgonina is the single player who played in the most Monday Night Football games for the team with 17 games on record. The exciting thing about a Monday night game is that it’s the only game being played and there’s a lot of pressure on the team playing in this particular game because fans, friends and family watch them show their stuff on the field. So it’s a big deal for those who are scheduled to play a Monday night game.
Playing on a Monday night is important for any team. For the Texans, it’s extremely big because it’s their chance to be seen on national television. As with the preparations, the Texans are more than ready to do it on the field as it means so much to the city they represent. It is also a point of pride to show everyone what they are worth. And with all the coverage they’re getting, reputations can be made in one night. It has been proven that people who play great Monday night football are never forgotten.
Now all the Texans have to do is play a great game and show the public what they really are made of on the inside as a team. If they perform at their best, they will surely change the way the public sees them. The Texans may be on their way to stardom if they do well with Monday night football.
