HOUSTON (SPORTSRADIO 610) – The NFL has released their schedule for the 2018 season and three prime time appearances highlight the Texans’ schedule. 

All three prime time games come at home for the Texans.  In week four, the once every eight-year lone star showdown in Houston will be featured on Sunday Night Football when they face the Cowboys.   In week eight, the Texans will host the Dolphins on Thursday Night Football.  Later in the season, in week 12, the Texans are home for the Titans on Monday Night Football.

The first two weeks of the season see the Texans on the road.  In week one, they head to Foxborough, Massachusetts to face the defending AFC Champion Patriots.  The following week the Texans will be in Tennessee for their first divisional game against the Titans.

Week three will be the first time the Texans play at home as they host the Giants, but will be back on the road the following week against the Colts in week four.

Week five and six will be the first time the Texans play back-to-back home games, against the Cowboys in week five, and then the Bills in week six.

In week seven the Texans are back on the road for a divisional game against the Jaguars, then home for the Dolphins in week 8.  The following week the Texans will go to Denver to face the Broncos and former Texan Case Keenum in week 9. 

The bye week for the Texans comes in week 10, and then will play three of their next four games at NRG Stadium.  Prior to that, the Texans play a road game against the Redskins in week 11.

Following the trip east, the Texans will return home for three straight games, including two against divisional teams.  In week 12 the Texans face the Titans, followed by the Browns in week 13 and then close out the three-game home stand against the Colts in week 14.

After three straight at home, the Texans will play their last two road games of the regular season on the road.  In week 15 they’ll get their crack at the other New York team as they play the Jets, then travel to Philadelphia for the defending Super Bowl champions in week 16.

As usual in the NFL the Texans will face a divisional opponent in week 17, as they host the Jaguars to close out the 2018 regular season. 

Of the six divisional games for the Texans, the first three are on the road with the last three being at home.

11 of the Texans’ games are scheduled for a noon kick, with the exceptions being the three prime time games, the 3 p.m. kick in Denver and the Saturday, December 15 game against the Jets is TBD.
