The Houston Texans will start off the 2022 NFL season with a pair of tests against two AFC teams with playoff aspirations.
In Week 1, the Texans will host their AFC South rival Indianapolis Colts at NRG Stadium. It was originally reported from sources that the Texans would host the Kansas City Chiefs in the home opener, but those reports have been confirmed to be untrue with the announcement made by the team.
