The Cleveland Browns will take another crack at picking up their first win of the season today as they face the Houston Texans. Here is how to watch or listen to the game.

The Cleveland Browns are in Houston today to face the Houston Texans.

The game will mark the first NFL start for quarterback Kevin Hogan, who is replacing rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer, at least for this week, as the starter.

The quarterback switch means that Tim Couch will remain the last Browns quarterback to start a full season, at least for another year. In case you were wondering, Couch pulled off that feat in 2001.

In case there are any Browns fans who are concerned they won’t be reminded of it today Hogan will become the 28th different quarterback to start a game for the Browns since 1999. In addition to Couch, the list includes Ty Detmer, Doug Pederson, Spergon Wynn, Kelly Holcolmb, Jeff Garcia, Luke McCown, Trent Dilfer, Charlie Frye, Derek Anderson, Brady Quinn, Ken Dorsey, Bruce Gradkowski, Colt McCoy, Jake Delhomme, Seneca Wallace, Brandon Weeden, Thad Lewis, Jason Campbell, Brian Hoyer, Johnny Manziel, Connor Shaw, Josh McCown, Austin Davis, Robert Griffin III, Cody Kessler and DeShone Kizer.

Hogan certainly knows the history of the Browns and the quarterback position, but he is focused on the Texans, rather than on the past, he told

"“I’m not even thinking about that. We are getting towards the middle of the season, and we are just trying to get a win. That is all that is on my mind, all that is on the minds of everyone in this locker room. I’m not worried about what’s down the road. It is just about one day at a time. I’m already getting ready for this practice coming up. I’m not even worrying about what film I’m going to watch later today. It is going to be one step at a time.”"
