If this is to be believed this is what the Texans are looking at:


Week 1 Sunday 9/9/2012 Texans @ Broncos NBC 8:20pm
Week 2 Sunday 9/16/2012 Packers @ Texans FOX 4:05 PM
Week 3 Sunday 9/23/2012 Colts @ Texans CBS 4:15 PM
Week 4 Sunday 9/30/2012 Texans @ Patriots CBS 4:15 PM
Week 5 Sunday 10/7/2012 Titans @ Texans CBS 1:00 PM
Week 6 Sunday 10/14/2012 Texans @ Jaguars CBS 1:00 PM
Week 7 BYE
Week 8 Monday 10/29/2012 Ravens @ Texans ESPN 8:30 PM
Week 9 Sunday 11/4/2012 Texans @ Colts CBS 1:00 PM
Week 10 Sunday 11/11/2012 Jaguars @ Texans CBS 1:00 PM
Week 11 Sunday 11/18/2012 Texans @ Bears CBS 1:00 PM
Week 12 Thursday 11/22/2012 Texans @ Lions CBS 12:30 PM
Week 13 Sunday 12/2/2012 Bills @ Texans CBS 1:00 PM
Week 14 Sunday 12/9/2012 Vikings @ Texans FOX 1:00 PM
Week 15 Sunday 12/16/2012 Dolphins @ Texans CBS 1:00 PM
Week 16 Sunday 12/23/2012 Texans @ Jets CBS 1:00 PM
Week 17 Sunday 12/30/2012 Texans @ Titans CBS 1:00 PM


One thing I noticed is I don't think the proper networks are paired with the games, and CBS seems to have a lot of 4:15 games, which has almost never been the case with all the tennis going on. Either way though, this is a legit leak or somebody has a lot of time on their hands planning a pretty complex fake. I wouldn't mind that schedule at all, what do you think?

Maybe fake, but it is fun to speculate abotu this stuff, and i like the look of the schedule. Good bye week slot, just the right amount of primetime imo, but the 4 o clock games 3 weeks in a row does seem a bit off.

The finals for the US Open would be 9/9. Looking at weeks 2-4 would indicate that CBS would hold the doubleheader 3 weeks in a row. That doesn't seem right.

Wouldn't be crazy about going on the road to Chicago, then in Detroit for Turkey day on a short week. And I would have thought the Bills game might have made MNF. But, this is possible.

That week 2 match-up with Green Bay would be on Fox.

Tough start to the season, but the last few games look good. Bills in week 13 means we have about a 60% chance that Mario will be out. Vikings week 14 and Dolphins in 15 will be easy wins as both of those teams will be in the Suck for Barkley sweepstakes. The Jets in week 15 is great, as the team will have fired Rex Ryan by then, and they will be shambles. Finish off the season by curb stomping the Titans @ Tenn, and that will be a nice ending to another 10-6 season. Works for me.

I would actually love play the Broncos early. Let's not get Manning when he is fully adjusted back into the NFL.

I dont care much for our home/bye game distribution. Starting week 4:

Away
Home
Away
Home
Away
Home
Away
Away

And then the one positive thing.. 3 home games in a row week 13-15.. which is usually when teams in the hunt are securing their playoff berth.

Play the Ravens because of 1st place schedule and it's good for ratings?

If this is real, it'll be nice to have SNF week 1 against Peyton.

Got some tough games in there though.

That week 2 match-up with Green Bay would be on Fox.

Networks with the doubleheaders will have games with 4:15 starts. Networks with late games that do not have the doubleheader will have games with 4:05 starts. By the Packers/Texans game having a 4:05 start, the doubleheader would belong to Cbs. And seeing that both week 3 &4 have the Texans on the late 4:15 game would imply that Cbs has the doubleheader 3 consecutive weeks.

I don't think this is legitimate.

The last month of the schedule is supposed to be full of divisional match-ups. The NFL made that change 1-2 years ago in response to all the late season quasi-tanking that was going on. My impression is the NFL was happy with the results... According to this schedule the Texans only play one divisional game the final 7 weeks.

Remember when I made a thread saying to change it to that and alot of people thought I was crazy for suggesting such a thing?

Only time will tell if this is true or not. However I will say that as soon as Peyton signed with the Broncos the first thing that came to mind was a Sunday night game. Also my prediction of 3 primetime games would be correct as well.

Remember the time Bobby Boucher showed up at halftime and the Mud Dogs won the Bourbon Bowl, do ya?

I do concur that 4 games of the last 6 weeks are supposed to be divisional, which makes this most likely inaccurate.

Must the NFL attempt to get us to play Peyton Manning wk 1 again? They've done this the past 3 seasons. Oh you better believe there will be a yellow flag fest that day.

No way in hell will they give us three home games in Dec! JMO! Plus, I wouldn't be real happy if our last home game was mid Dec. BUT, if it's true, I'll just have to deal! Maybe head to NJ and watch us play the Jets! :texanbill:

Don't think we've ever had two 3pm games in a row, AT HOME!! Interesting schedule, if it's true. I'm just ready for some FOOTBALL, don't care when or where!!

Gonna go watch the Stallions tomorrow night. That's how desperate I am!:)

LOL.

I think the schedule is not legit. If it is, then it sucks that we open on the road and have the last two games on the road. That's my main gripe with it.

Looking at the full schedule, some of those prime time games look a little suspect. Especially on the MNF end. Then again they've been scheduling ****ty games for the past few years now.

Judging the schedule as is, two two game road stints isn't that bad, and we would have a nice soft Dec to make our playoff push. Viking, Bills, Dolphins all at home seems great, and we would get the Pack and the Ravens here. Way better than last years hoo hah of crap flung at us right from the get-go.

please no Peyton in the first game. He will have a shield of yellow flags around him. If we hit him there will immediately be a dozen yellow flags around him. It will probably be like that most of the season but it will be much worse in the first few weeks.

Then we should have played him when he was 5. :ahhaha:

link via pft (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/04/06/league-says-leaked-regular-season-schedule-is-bogus/)

Many of you have submitted via email over the past day or so various links to a supposedly leaked 2012 regular-season schedule.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello says it’s “bogus.”

Though the league necessarily can’t keep a lid on information that goes out to the 32 teams, the league office guards zealously the regular-season schedule. Since the teams don’t get it, the teams can’t leak it.

The regular-season schedule will be released before the draft. There’s rarely much advance notice before the thing comes out.

That’s what she said?

I hope we get the Packers on monday night. We already had the Ravens on MNF two years ago. If not the Packers I would like to have Titans. I wouldn't mind having the Broncos on MNF but it would be a road game.

I want a SNF game with the Pack.

Of the prime time games, I have thought that the packers game would be a sunday night match up and the ravens would be a monday night match up.

I guess we will see in the long run.

From the blogger who fabricated the 2012 schedule (http://eaglesstats2012.blogspot.com/):

Update: Time to Come Clean

As many (and I mean, many) of outlets have reported, this is indeed a fabricated schedule that I completely made up for the NFL 2012 Regular Season. If that's all you need to hear, that's fine. If you want to hear more, feel free to keep reading.

He says he has one. ;)

Personally I think it would pretty cool to come up with something that not only blows up the cyber-sports world, but actually generates a denial from the NFL.

Well done IMO :clap:
