The surprisingly good Carolina Panthers (2-0) will be on the road to face another surprisingly not terrible Houston Texans (1-1) to kick off Week 3.

The Panthers have the league’s best defense in both regular metrics and in DVOA. The Denver Broncos defense is good, but even they haven’t topped the play from Carolina defensively through two weeks. Meanwhile, the Texans are competitive. That’s much better than what everyone on the planet expected from that dysfunctional franchise.

I’m thinking this might just be a pretty good game, hopefully everyone here has a leg in that fight on their fantasy football team. I don’t, but I think I’ll still watch.

Kickoff is set for Thursday, September 23, 2021 at 6:20 p.m. Mile High time at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas and will air on NFL Network. If you are looking for an online stream elsewhere, fuboTV will be streaming this game.
