New England and Denver late will tell us where we're really at as a team. We need to win those games at home if we really are gonna be Super Bowl contenders.

Ouch - a potential 0-3 from weeks 3 to 5 - brutal early season stretch!

The opening two weeks should be very manageable though.

Not me. That will be the away game I will attend this year.

Some home prime time games would be nice. Was hoping for a Sunday and Monday night at home. Instead only 1 of 4 prime time games at home after only 1 of 5 at home last year. Although NE on Dec 1 and Den on Dec 22 could be Sunday night flex candidates.

No please. Playing the Pats in the afternoon then head to Jacksonville for a Thurday game is bad enough.

The good thing is we don't really have a cold weather game.
The Indy game will be indoor.

As a regular tailgater, I'd prefer zero prime time home games. Noon games are so much better.

I prefer the excitement of a primetime game, as well as I am not much of a morning person...I would especially rather drinking in the afternoon/night compared to morning.

3:30 Patriots game is a good time.

As far as the schedule I am glad we play KC before the bye and Indy after.

I see a 12-4 season. But of course, we haven't had a draft yet, so it's still super early.

So you think playing 7 of 9 prime time games on the road is easier than playing more of them at home? I disagree. If you are a good team you will have a lot of prime time games - if you want minimal total prime timers then start Blaine Gabbert ar QB. I would rather have at least 30% of our prime time games at home.

As a regular tailgater I prefer prime time or at least 3 PM games. Rolling out of the rack at 7AM for the noon kickoffs isn't ideal. Except for Sept which is too hot later so noon is best then. Also prime time (even 3 PM) games are more electric and fun to attend.

I didn't say anything about that.
I specifically talked about the Dec 1 game against the Pats, which is already at home in the afternoon.

The next game at Jacksonville is a Thursday night game; that's not going to change. It would have nice if they can schedule for the away team (playing Thursday) to have the previous week off. But it is what it is.

What I meant is that I don't want to change the Dec 1 game to a night game, and then going on the road just a little over 3 days afterward. Actually, the team will probably have to fly out on Wednesday.

Nick Scurfield notes on schedule

Quote:
1. Texans schedule, Twitter-style: The Texans’ schedule in 140 characters or less: @ SD(MNF), TEN, @ BAL, SEA, @ SF(SNF), STL, @ KC, BYE, IND(SNF), @ ARI, OAK, JAC, NE, @ JAC(TNF), @ IND, DEN, @ TEN

2. West Coast opener: The Texans’ season opener at San Diego kicks off at 9:20 p.m. CT. If that seems unusually late, that’s because it is. It’s the latest kick and first West Coast Monday night game in team history. It’s also the first primetime opener for the Texans since their inaugural game against Dallas in 2002, which was a Sunday night game at Reliant Stadium. Accounting for an overnight flight and two-hour time change, the Texans likely won’t get back to Reliant Stadium after the game until Tuesday at 7 or 8 a.m.

3. Road opener: This will be just the second time in eight years under Gary Kubiak that the Texans open on the road. The only previous time was at Pittsburgh in 2008, a 38-17 loss.

4. 4 primetime, 1 at home: The Texans have four primetime games in 2013, a year after they had five nationally televised matchups (four in primetime, one on Thanksgiving Day). Just like in 2012, only one of their primetime games is at home (Indianapolis, Week 9).

5. Flex possibilities: The Texans’ home games against the New England Patriots (Week 13, 3:25 p.m. kickoff) and Denver Broncos (Week 16, noon) are prime candidates to be flexed into a later time slot. Flex scheduling begins in Week 11, which means the Texans’ games vs. Oakland (Week 11), vs. Jacksonville (Week 12), at Indianapolis (Week 15) and at Tennessee (Week 17) also could be moved.

6. Patriots part deux: The Texans also played the Patriots in Week 13 last season. They lost 42-14 to drop their record to 11-2, the start of a 1-3 skid that knocked them out of the top seed in the AFC. They lost 41-28 to New England in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. Both of those games were on the road; this time, the Texans get Tom Brady at Reliant Stadium.

7. Tough stretch 1: Weeks 3-5. The Texans have road games at both of last year’s Super Bowl participants (Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers) sandwiched around a home game against the Seattle Seahawks, who went 11-5 in 2012 and were a missed field goal away from playing in the NFC Championship Game.

8. Tough stretch 2: Weeks 13-17. The Texans finish the season with three of four games on the road against division opponents. The only home game in that stretch is against Peyton Manning and the Broncos, last year’s top seed in the AFC. The game before that stretch is against the Patriots.

The essence of my original post and your reply are as above. If you "didn't say anything about my post then I am not sure why you quoted it. If your objection was to the side point of flexing only that one game you could have said that instead of no thanks to any home prime time games which you seemed to infer.

As to flying to Jax on a Wed after a home game that is 3 or even 7 hours later ... it's the Jags for crying out loud. Every other team hitting the road for a Thur game has a tougher match even if they have their bye the week before. I think the Ravens played Sun night at home then hit the road on Thur this last season. If the Texans season this year ends like rhe Ravens last year - I am good with that.
