It’s time, it’s time, the schedule has arrived. Why is this so important? Is it because we think the Texans are good and they’ll tear through this schedule like a knife through wet paper? Not even a little bit. For many Texans fans, myself included, the schedule helps provide some much needed clarity on what will affect our travel plans.
For instance, this year, the Texans will be playing in a lot of prime tourist destination cities. For the Texan fan on the go, or those who live closer to out-of-town fans, these might prove to be the only games worth going to; games like at New York for the Giants, at Las Vegas for the Raiders, at Miami to see the Dolphins, or at Chicago to watch the Bears.

Yep, only four major tourist cities worth getting on a plane to see the Texans at.
But I’ve stalled enough as it is. Let’s see how the schedule gods have
