But the Oiler's/ Cowboys weren't one in any sense. Most of the bad blood came along with Jerrah

The leagues were rivals, not the individual teams who never played each other. Yes I was around for the merger and grew up in Dallas. Houston was never even discussed in passing as a rival. People either ignored the Oilers or rooted for them as the other Texas team (which is what I did).

In 44 seasons the Cowboys have only played the Oilers/Titans 13 times. If you want an AFC Cowboys rival it is the Steelers as two franchises fighting for the SB who even in different conferences have played 31 times, 3 times in the SB.

But KC is in the same time zone...

Texans, Cowboys, Saints and Chiefs sounds great to me.

No it is important to crush them.

Too many years of getting them shoved down our throats and how good they are and how many Super Bowls they have won. Too many cowboys fans in Houston and too many times of having to watch them on local TV instead of a good matchup. Too much of Jerry Jones.

Yep. We can forget about Sunday night/Monday night prime time and/or national games for the next few years. Thanks, Kubiak.

Personally, I prefer us playing at noon on Sundays. That way I'm in my zone. The prime time and late games screw me up.

The prime time games are a blast. Always a lot of fun (until Kubiak's lack of preparation screwed things up...)

The 2014 NFL schedule won't come out until the middle or late part of April. But each team knows it's respective home and road opponents. Thanks to the Texans' media relations department, below is a table showing the 2013 records of the teams Houston will face next season...

...chart...

Some key takeaways: by virtue of their NFL-worst 2-14 record last season, the Texans will get the last-place teams from the AFC West and the AFC East. They're locked into playing their AFC South rivals at home and away, and they'll also play a pair of AFC North and NFC East teams at home. They'll play the other teams from the latter two divisions on the road as well.
So that means they'll face just one playoff team, the Colts, on the road next season.

They'll host three playoff teams in the Eagles, Bengals and Colts.

It all depends on how the new roster develops and how quickly new players contribute. We could have new guys at QB, Nose, ILB, LG, RT, DE and maybe RB game one.

Definitely a big part of it. However, the crux is that we're going to be playing several teams with issues as real as ours. Only one play-off team & that team is in our division...

I don't think McNair is too far off thinking we could rebound in 2014. We could very likely have 12 wins & not one "quality" win.

I don't think we're going 12-4, but 9-7 would have got us in the play-offs in 2013 (we beat San Diego head to head).

No. The first game, Texans inaugural we lost 19-10, 19-10, 19-10 back when Quincey Carter was QB and our team was worse than it is now. In 2006 we won in Dallas 34-6 with Drew Bledsoe as QB, and Romo came in in the 4th quarter. In 2010 9/26 we played in Houston and won 27-13 in the stadium and got the crap beat out of us in the parking lot which was the origin of the new tailgating rules. This year the game is back in Dallas and I would like to see a prime time Thursday night game. I think the Texans are due for another win, perhaps it will be this season.

Didn't we win the first game against Dallas 19-10?
