The NFL will release its 2019 regular season schedule at 7 p.m. CDT tonight, which means we should be treated to a few leaks of what that schedule looks like in the hours leading up to the official announcement. The league has already published the times and dates of the five games that’ll be played outside the United States during the upcoming season; we knew the Texans would be playing the Jaguars in London for one of those games, and now we know when it’ll be.
The #Texans will play the division-rival Jacksonville Jaguars in London in Week 9. The game will be played on Sunday, Nov. 3 at Wembley Stadium and kickoff is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. CT.— Texans PR (@TexansPR) April 17, 2019
