The Houston Texans' final preseason game against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday will be a chance for some players to prove they belong on the team.

Coach DeMeco Ryans said that starters will play about two series in New Orleans, and then backups will have a chance to showcase their skills. However, he said that the game is not the deciding factor on whether or not a player makes the team.

"You still just want to see that cumulative view of guys and what they've been able to handle over the course of practice," Ryans said. "We mix up a lot of different calls in practice, so we get to see our players in what they can handle mentally and then get in the game."

Ryans also said that rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud will be starting in the final preseason game, just as he had the previous two. However, he would not say whether the former Ohio State Buckeye has won the starting position for the regular season.

"In everybody's case, we'll see who earns what, and you'll see our starters in Baltimore," Ryans said when asked if Stroud had done enough to earn the starting position.

The Texans are the only team in the NFL that hasn't named a definitive starter to begin the regular season. The game against the Saints will be a crucial one for many players who are vying for a spot on the roster.

Here are some additional details that could be included in the article:

  • The Texans have a lot of young players who are trying to make the team.
  • The team is also trying to decide who will be the starting quarterback.
  • The game against the Saints will be a good opportunity for players to show what they can do.
  • The Texans will need to make some tough decisions after the game.
