CBS will be broadcasting Sunday’s NFL game between the LA Chargers and Houston Texans. This matchup will get started at 1:00 p.m. ET from NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.

The Chargers are coming off a tough loss when it came to their AFC West chances as they lost a late lead in an overtime defeat to the Kansas City Chargers. That game was on Thursday, so Los Angeles had an extra few days to prepare. The Chargers are still in good shape for the playoffs if they can get back on track against one of the worst teams in the league.

The Texans earned their third win of the season last weekend when they knocked off the Jacksonville Jaguars 30-16 in a matchup between two of the worst teams in the league. Davis Mills has improved recently from where he was at earlier this season, but he will need to play his best game to put Houston in a position to pull off an upset.
