(Texans President) Jamey Rootes spoke with (Houston) Mayor (Sylvester) Turner and (Harris County) Judge (Ed) Emmett — obviously, Bob McNair involved with that — and everyone agrees that our game will not take resources away from other parts of the city and that this game will be an opportunity to continue to bring us all together as Houstonians and as Texans, Texans coach Bill O’Brien said.

Winning their opener would help advance the Texans’ goal of mending their community, but like the Jaguars, Houston opens the season with a curious situation at its most crucial position.
Stafford was benched after throwing three interceptions in a 42-17 home loss to the Cardinals two seasons ago, the last time the teams met.

Arizona allowed the second-fewest yards and topped the league with 48 sacks last season.
They’re unique in their scheme, Stafford said. The guys in the secondary, they’re ballhawks out there. No. 21 (cornerback Patrick Peterson) and 32 (free safety Tyrann Mathieu) have done it for years and some of the other guys that are new to the team or their role are playing really well, too.
And then they have guys who can really rush the passer up front. So they do a really nice job. Traditionally, they’ve been a very good defense and I don’t expect to see anything different.
