Houston Texans 2016 Schedule Released

Houston (CBS HOUSTON) – The who, the where and the what were already known for the Houston Texans 2016 Schedule.

Who: The Texans knew their opponents for the 2016 season in December.

Where: The home and road opponents were known the day after the 2015 season ended.

What:
Football. We always knew that.

All the Houston Texans fans were waiting for was the when, and now we know that. The Texans play five primetime games this season, two on Monday Night (Week 7 & Week 11), one on Sunday night (Week 6), one on Saturday (Week 16) and their annual Thursday Night game (Week 3). They are also facing a lot of familiar foes in those primetime games starting with the Thursday Night game in New England in Week 3. That game will be broadcast on CBS, the NFL Network and streamed on Twitter.

In back-to-back weeks the Texans will play in primetime. They host the Indianapolis Colts in Week 6 on Sunday Night Football and follow that week up traveling to play the defending Super Bowl Champion Denver Broncos in week 7. Texans quarterback Brock Osweiler will return to Denver where he played his first four seasons as the backup to Peyton Manning.

The Texans will then travel to Mexico City for their week 11 Monday Night football matchup against the Oakland Raiders.  Their final primetime game coming in week 16 against the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday Night Football on Saturday Night at NRG Stadium.

The Texans will get their bye week in Week 9 directly midway through the season.
