Default Texans to open up on the Road?

Just looking at Reliant Park's schedule and that first week (Sept 11) is the final week of the Auto Show. All of which happens to be held in the Reliant Parking lots. Do you think that basically puts the Texans on the road week 1 due to the amount of space needed for the car show?

Week 1 9/11-Road
Week 2 9/18
Week 3 9/25
Week 4 10/2
Week 5 10/9
Week 6 10/16 Road/Bye
Week 7 10/23
Week 8 10/30
Week 9 11/6
Week 10 11/13 Road/Bye
Week 11 11/20 Road according to Ravens24X7.com
Week 12 11/27
Week 13 12/4 Possible Road (Big 12 championship the night before)
Week 14 12/11
Week 15 12/18
Week 16 12/25 Possible Road (in prep for Houston Bowl)
Week 17 1/1 Possible Road (in prep for Houston Bowl)

Due to the events at Reliant Stadium/Park this is likely when some of the road games will be.

9/11 has the Auto Show in the parking lots
10/16 has the Home and Garden Show and a Gun show in Reliant Park
11/13 has Disney on Ice in Reliant Stadium
11/20 has Texans @ Ravens according to Ravens24X7.com
12/4 has Big 12 Championship the night before, hard to get things ready for the next game
12/25 Preparation for Houston Bowl, but will likely be a home game that I'll miss unfortunately
1/1 Same situation as Big 12 Championship, it all depends on when they play it

I checked that website(www.reliantpark.com)...and that about cements the fact that they will be playing away their first week. The only option for us to have a home opener that I could think of is that they held the ride and drive behind Reliant Convention Center.

Year 1 opener - home
Year 2 opener - away
Year 3 opener - home
Year 4 opener - away

Dallas Cowboys
2004 - away
2003 - home
2002 - away

The cowboys will have home opener

That's why it will be away, they alternate every year for every team (I'm pretty sure)

If we do open it up on the road here are our possible road opponents: Baltimore, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, San Francisco, Seattle, Buffalo and Tennessee.

I don't see the first game being against a division opponent since it never is.
I believe all week 1 games will will stay in conference. So that leaves Baltimore, Cincy or Buffalo.

I think it will be either Cincy or Baltimore.... What do ya'll think?

Hope its Buffalo, would much rather play up there in September than late in the year.

Baltimore already has us playing them in November up there. How they got the schedule, I have no idea.

So this leads me to believe that we will be playing at Cincy or Buffalo the first game.

Not true, Miami has had 14 straight home openers

the worst part of it is that means at least 3 straight weeks on the road including preseason...that's a long time not to visit reliant

so what your saying is 25% chance playing Divisional opponent, if not an AFC team, so no chance of San Francisco the best 2-14 team of 2004

it's just common courtesy to read everyone's post before stating something else. At least that's how it used to be when the board was first started

Before criticizing someone it is common courtesy to give him the benefit of the doubt.

If you had taken the time to notice, he provided something new by actually giving the direct link to Ravens site.

For others who are also too lazy to click on the link, this is something else from that page:

BREAKING NEWS (5:13PM ~ March 15, 2005): Unnamed sources close to NFL Headquarters have shared the Ravens 2005-06 schedule with Ravens24x7.com. Times and dates are still unofficial pending the scheduling of nationally televised games. Once the TV schedule is set, the NFL will release the official schedule.
