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.

The Houston Texans have a big decision to make involving Brandin Cooks' future with the team. Cooks has expressed his wishes to be traded and not play for a team looking to rebuild.

But could the hiring of DeMeco Ryans change his perspective on the state of the team?

And even if it does, should the Texans be willing to bring him back and forgive his behavior last season?

Be sure to check out the video above as the guys break it all down!
