Rackers' first opponent: Arizona

Neil Rackers' surprise contract agreement with the Texans sets up a date with his former team, Arizona, in the exhibition opener at University of Phoenix Stadium.

I'm forecasting a 27-0 Texans victory with nine field goals from Rackers.

That'll show 'em.

Seriously, though, the deal with Houston wasn't anticipated. Rackers reportedly had a visit scheduled with the Jets. He'll compete against Kris Brown for a job in Houston after the Cardinals signed Jay Feely, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
