    Cowboys on SNF. Titans and/or Colts on MNF.

    I think it'll be these 3:

    Redskins on NFL Network Thursday game (Shanahan-Kubiak storyline)

    Cowboys on ESPN Monday Night (obvious storyline)

    A Sunday Night game flexed into primetime, I'd guess Colts, Titans, Chargers, Jets-anyone in contention on our schedule around then

    I expect 4+ counting some playoff wins :pirate:

    :runaway:

    on a serious note I could see 3

    I would be very surprised if the Texans were on a Thanksgiving game
    , very surprised

    I can see the Texans/Cowgirls in prime time, and one of our division rivals also.

    I don't know about the Houston Broncos - Washington Texans game though. :tv:

    Hey NFLN picked up Texans-Broncos a few years back... they always seem to pick up the storyline games and not necessarily the big primetime matchups (which they get outbid for by the bigger networks I'm sure).

    I'd love to see the Texans/Cowboys on Thanksgiving... if the Raiders Bucs and Seahawks can get that game the past few years why not us? I think it would guarantee a way more competitive game too as its in Houston and we rarely get blown out of games. Also networks like to flock to warm climates during the cold autumn/winters. I'm just sayin its not completely out of the questions. Nor is a Christmas night game.

    Texans-Cowboys can't play on Thanksgiving. Would be nice though.

    Right it has to be at Jerryville. We can still hold out hope for Christmas night though.

    I hope the Texans-Cowboys game is on Sunday so I won't have to skip too many classes the next day. That's assuming I can afford tickets at all...

    Skins on Monday night. Titans and Cowboys on Sunday. Or one of the SUnday games also on Monday/Thursday. Also, we will get flex scheduled.

    Yeah, pretty much. Dallas as the SNF and Indy as the MNF. Titans at home as a maybe on MNF (the game this year got good ratings). I can see the Redskins on a Thursday night, too.

    I see 1 game unless the Texans are blowing people away and get flexed later on in the season.

    There's enough national buzz about the Texans being an up-and-coming team that I could see three, but after the way they performed in '09 on national TV, I say two.

    Huh? Every game they played in '09, week one against the Jets excepted, was close. The MNF game against the Titans sucked for us Texans fans, but it certainly did not suck for ESPN. That was a good game.

    The schedule next season is very tough on paper, but it should increase the Texans' national exposure because there are a lot of enticing games for NBC, ESPN, and NFLN to choose from.

    I voted two, but I think it could actually be three.

    Probably none

    Unless we get one early in the year.

    The Texans record wont be good enough to get a prime time game late in the year. IMO

    I would say three. I could see the Dallas game, a divisional game (probably Indy), and possibly a third game against one of Eagles/Giants/Chargers/Ravens/Jets/Broncos. Houston has one of the toughest schedules next year which means they will have a lot of games that could get national attention.
