Texans 2012 schedule notes, analysis

Posted by Nick Scurfield on April 17, 2012 – 6:53 pm

With an assist to the Texans’ communications staff, here are some notes on the Texans’ 2012 schedule, which was released on Tuesday at 6 p.m. CT:

Primetime/National TV Notes

  • The Texans play a team-record five games on national television, surpassing the previous high of three nationally-televised games in 2010.
  • The Texans play on Thanksgiving Day for the first time in team history (at Detroit, Nov. 22). The game’s 11:30 a.m. CT kickoff time will be the earliest in team history.
  • The Texans play four primetime games in 2012. They played 11 primetime games in their first 10 seasons combined.
  • The Texans will make their debut on NBC’s Sunday Night Football on Oct. 14 vs. Green Bay. They also play on SNF at Chicago on Nov. 11.
  • The Texans play on ESPN’s Monday Night Football twice: at the New York Jets on Oct. 8 and at New England on Dec. 10. They’re 1-3 on MNF in team history.

Home/Away Notes

  • The Texans open the season at home for the fourth consecutive season and sixth time in seven seasons under head coach Gary Kubiak, who is 3-3 in season openers (3-2 at home).
  • The Texans end the season on the road for just the second time in team history and the first time under Kubiak, who is 5-1 in season finales.
  • The Texans play three consecutive home games in October/November: vs. Green Bay (Oct. 14), vs. Baltimore (Oct. 21) and vs. Buffalo (Nov. 4). They play three consecutive road games in November/December: at Detroit (Nov. 22), at Tennessee (Dec. 2), at New England (Dec. 10).

Other Notes

  • The Texans face longtime nemesis Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos at Denver in Week 3 at 3:15 p.m. CT (Sept. 23). Manning went 16-2 against Houston with the Indianapolis Colts.
  • After their Week 8 bye, the Texans get a visit from defensive end Mario Williams and the Buffalo Bills (Nov. 4). The Texans drafted Williams No. 1 overall in 2006, and he had 53 sacks in six seasons before signing with Buffalo as a free agent this offseason.
  • Texans/Ravens won’t be in primetime in Week 7, but it should be easily one of the best games of the Texans’ home schedule. Houston’s 0-6 record against Baltimore is not indicative of how close their games have been in recent seasons. The Ravens edged the Texans 20-13 at Baltimore in the Divisional Round of the playoffs last season. They also won 34-28 in overtime at Reliant Stadium in 2010 on Monday Night Football.
  • The Texans have an odd finish to the regular season with two games against the Indianapolis Colts in three weeks. They’re home against Indy and then Minnesota before traveling to Lucas Oil Stadium in Week 17. It’s actually the second time the Texans will face the Colts twice in a three-game span (2009 was the other).
  • The Texans have never lost to their Week 1 opponent, the Miami Dolphins (6-0 all-time). They have never won at Indianapolis (0-10), where they play in Week 17.
