Charlie Pallilo: Tuesday's Astros game is the one to catch

The Rockets came up short on Saturday due to the Minnesota Timberwolves playing out of their minds. Houston still has the upper hand in the series, and are favored to win tonight's game. If the Rockets are able to get the win tonight and split these two road games with Minnesota, everything is still set up for them to close out the series in Houston on Wednesday night. 

The Astros, fresh off a sweep of the White Sox, face the Angels tonight with Gerrit Cole making the start. And if there's one can't-miss game this week, it has to be Tuesday's matchup of Charlie Morton and Angels' phenom, Shohei Ohtani.

The Houston Texans have been busy interviewing coaches over the last few weeks, and just this week, the team held second interviews with Giants OC Mike Kafka and Broncos DC Ejiro Evero. The Texans have also interviewed Los Angeles Rams tight ends coach and assistant head coach Thomas Brown, Sean Payton, Lions OC Ben Johnson, Eagles DC Jonathan Gannon, and Eagles OC Shane Steichen. Johnson has taken himself out of the mix and is returning to Detroit.

But according to a new report from Ian Rapoport, the Texans may already have their minds made up about their next head coach.

Former Texans linebacker and current 49ers DC DeMeco Ryans appears to be the top candidate for the Texans, and he is reportedly interested in the position, with a second interview likely to take place next week.

Ryans has been the defensive coordinator for the 49ers over the last two seasons. San Francisco was the best defense in the league in 2022.

Ryans is a popular pick for the position in Houston, and fans will be super excited if he eventually gets the job. Let's hope Rapoport's sources are correct, and the Texans have their new head coach lined up.
