We play a lot of good teams so I can see any of the games I bolded as a primetime game especially the rematch with the Ravens.

It would be great to have a Monday night game home at Reliant. Either Baltimore or Green Bay would be ideal choices, or even both of them.

Touch Schedule. We play 5 playoff teams from last season. Getting the division crown makes for a difficult year.

Plus the Bills, Dolphins, Jets, and Titans who are all good. And the Bears who would have been a playoff team (likely) if Cutler and Forte had not both gone down.

Isn't there a better than average chance that the Lions game is on Thanksgiving?

I'm gonna guess we get 3 primetime games. One Sunday night game, one Monday night, and then the Thanksgiving game against Detroit.

You never know with the NFL though. I remember last year we looked at our schedule and thought it would be difficult and it turned out to be pretty easy.

Default Re: Prime-time games next year

I will say 2.

The reason is because while the Texans had a great year, there is very little fan base outside of Texas. Very few people outside of Texas care about the Texans, so a national Texans game may not deliver great ratings.
The Texans need to be matched up with a team with a national following or who get a bunch of ESPN time, such as Green bay, New England, Jets, or Lions.

My guesses:
1. MNF against Green Bay at home.
2. Thanksgiving Day Turkey day game against Detroit.

I think that has changed a bit though. The media all seemed to be really impressed with the Texans throughout the playoff run, and they know we'll be an exciting team to watch once we get our QB back and with Foster and AJ still on a dominant level.

We will get a Sunday nighter in there somewhere.

I'm looking at our schedule and after seeing what I saw on the field yesterday and really throughout our entire season I don't see any reason we can't improve on the 10 regular season wins we got this year. Outsiders and haters point to a weak schedule this season but we weren't just beating teams, we were annihilating them. That matters. Yeah there are some tough opponents on that list but guess what? We are just plain better than most of them.

Why can't we have them all at noon on Sunday? Oh, that's right, we want to be seen by everyone yet we can't stand it when they say bad things about us.

But, in all seriousness, I really would prefer all noon Sunday games, except for Thanksgiving and Saturday games.

I think Baltimore and New England will be on Sunday Night. Green Bay on Monday Night and then Detroit on Thanksgiving. We could have a couple of more late afternoon games, which are like mini-national games. Denver or Chicago probably.

Rumor has it that the Texans are creating ticket packages for the game Thanksgiving g game. Heard it on ClutchFans.

The tough schedule angle will only help the Texans get more prime-time games next year. I will say the five prime games (that I predicted in the OP) will be against Baltimore, Green Bay, New England, Detroit (Thanksgiving) and another against a divisional opponent (my guess would be Tennessee).

Speak for yourself, I hate weekday night games at Reliant. Between trying to get the kids a sitter at a decent time and fighting rush hour traffic, it pretty much eliminates a tailgate for us. I'll take what we can get though.

Texans will be a Monday night team like KC was last year.

I'll go with this:

GB - Sunday night.
DET - Thanksgiving
DEN - Monday night
IND/TEN - Monday night

Add the Ravens or Pats as a 3 PM, national game.

I could see an early season DEN/HOU game on Mon. night.

I completely agree with Ryan. Heck, we had three prime time games in 2010 (Two Mondays and a Thursday) coming off of a non-playoff 9-7 season. Nationally, we're a far more interesting team going into 2012 than we were going into 2010.
