The Astros and Yankees play Game 3 of the ALCS today. Here is a preview of the game. Check back during the game for inning by inning updates:

When: 7 p.m.

Where: Yankee Stadium.

TV: Fox Sports1.

Streaming: Fox Sports Go.

Pitching matchup: Charlie Morton vs. C.C. Sabathia.

Series: Astros lead 2-0.

The breakdown: The Astros took the first two games at Minute Maid with fantastic pitching performances from Dallas Keuchel and Justin Verlander. Saturday's dramatic victory was one for the ages, with Jose Altuve dashing home in the ninth on a gusty play. Today's game features a pair of 14-game winners in Charlie Morton of the Astros and veteran C.C. Sabathia for the Yankees. Morton will likely have a short leash, because the Astros can take a stranglehold on the series if they can get by this one. But don't count out the Yankees. They had chances to win both games at Minute Maid and rallied from down 0-2 to beat a terrific Indians team in the first round.

With news coming down this week regarding the Houston Texans and their alleged role in the Deshaun Watson situation, ProFootballTalk founder and former lawyer Mike Florio shares his thoughts on the Texans being sued by Tony Buzbee and how he sees the legal proceedings playing out.

Also, Florio believes that the outcome of these cases will come down to "legal duty," and the Texans will argue they had no idea what Watson was doing, and it wasn't their responsibility to protect these individuals that have no ties to the organization.

Be sure to check out the video above for a full breakdown from a legal perspective.
