2011 schedule notes

Posted by Nick Scurfield on April 20, 2011 – 9:18 am

From the Texans’ public relations department, here are some notes on the Texans’ 2011 schedule:

Home and Away Notes

  • Houston opens at home for the seventh time in 10 years and the third year in a row.
  • The Texans end the season at home for ninth time in 10 years and for the sixth consecutive season. The Texans have closed the year at home in every season under head coach Gary Kubiak. Kubiak is 5-0 in season finales.
  • This is the fifth season under head coach Gary Kubiak in which the Texans will open and close the season at home.
  • The Texans’ 2011 schedule is extremely balanced, with each four-game quarter of the schedule featuring two home games and two road games.
  • After the home opener against Indianapolis, the Texans’ next 10 games will alternate between back-to-back away games and back-to-back home games (A-A-H-H-A-A-H-H-A-A).
  • For the second consecutive season, the Texans will face an opponent in preseason and again in Week 3 of the regular season. Houston hosts New Orleans in both teams’ second preseason game and travels to the Crescent City in Week 3.

Strength of Schedule Notes

  • Houston’s opponents had a combined record of 132-124 in 2010 for a winning percentage of .516. That ties the Texans for the 10th-toughest schedule in the league based on last year’s results, along with the Miami Dolphins and the Minnesota Vikings.
  • Three of Houston’s first four opponents have hoisted the Lombardi Trophy within the last six years. Indianapolis (Week 1) won Super Bowl XLI following the 2006 season; New Orleans (Week 3) claimed Super Bowl XLIV after the 2009 season; and Pittsburgh won Super Bowl XLIII following the 2008 season.
  • The Texans will play six games against 2010 playoff teams and seven games against teams that finished last season with winning records. Houston also plays four games against teams that finished 8-8 a year ago.
  • Houston will play five games against teams holding top-10 picks in this month’s NFL Draft, including one against Carolina, who holds the first overall pick, and two against Jacksonville (eighth overall).
  • Houston plays five games against teams with new head coaches: two games against the Tennessee Titans (Mike Munchak) and one each against Carolina (Ron Rivera), Cleveland (Pat Shurmur) and Oakland (Hue Jackson).

Series History Notes

  • Houston will look to stay unbeaten against Miami (5-0) and Carolina (2-0).
  • The Texans will aim for their sixth wins against Miami (5-0) and Oakland (5-1), which would be the most against a non-division opponent in franchise history.
  • The Texans will have an opportunity to pick up their first-ever win against Baltimore (0-4).
  • Houston will be looking to take the lead in series against five clubs: Atlanta (series tied 1-1), Cleveland (3-3), Jacksonville (9-9), New Orleans (1-1) and Tampa Bay (1-1).
  • Houston will face Cleveland (3-3) and Oakland (5-1) for the seventh time in franchise history. The Texans have played the Browns and Raiders more than any other non-divisional opponents.
