The C. J Sroud-led Houston Texans and Mac Jones-led New England Patriots will face off in the 2023 preseason. Both franchises failed to make the playoffs in 2022, so their coaches will be hard at work to prevent a recurrence.
The Patriots vs Texans game will be broadcast on the NFL Network. The game will likely feature a battle between young elite QBs Mac Jones and C.J Stroud. It's unknown how much play the first-stringers will get this week, but these games are essential for roster planning.
