Week 3 preseason scores are all set in stone, aside from the Houston Texans Minnesota Vikings Monday night showdown tonight at Reliant Stadium. Teams will have one more week of preseason games before opening day, when the focus will be turned to winning and not developing. For now players still have time to fight for their positions whether it is for starting QB or making the cut for special teams units.
