New, comments

It’s just a rumor, but one we’ll find out the truth about in a few short hours.

The NFL will release its full 2020 regular season schedule in a few hours. That necessarily means any number of professed leaks about the schedule have begun to flow. Virtually all of them are bunk. But some aren’t, and I tend to give more credence to the reports attached to a real life media personality, as they have something to lose, with the understanding that they could be getting bad information and that there’s no way to test the veracity until the schedule is actually released at 7 p.m. CDT. So grain of salt and all that.

That said, Danny Parkins is a sports radio host in Chicago who’s undeniably gotten good information in the past. Earlier today, he tweeted that your Houston Texans will open the NFL regular season against the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium in the marquee Thursday Night Football game.

It makes sense. Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson squaring off before a national prime-time audience to kick off the NFL season. It doesn’t get much better than that.

We just need the Texans to roll to a 52 point lead before letting the Chiefs score this time.

UPDATE: We have confirmation from John McClain.

UPDATE II: The Texans’ schedule is now out.
