The Texans took to their own website yesterday to announce the preseason dates that they have made with other teams. The Texans will host the Jets and the Saints in the first two weeks of the preseason, then will travel to San Francisco and Minnesota in the last two.
This is, of course, assuming we have a preseason. The NFL, as you may have heard, is currently in a lockout that threatens their season. Should the lockout stay be granted today, as is expected, the preseason will likely be in jeopardy.
Here’s what the complete preseason schedule looks like, courtesy of HoustonTexans.com:
DAY DATE TIME (CT) OPPONENT TV
Monday 8/15 7:30 p.m. NEW YORK JETS ESPN
Saturday 8/20 7:00 p.m. NEW ORLEANS SAINTS KTRK
Saturday 8/27 7:00 p.m. at San Francisco 49ers KTRK
Thursday 9/1 7:00 p.m. at Minnesota Vikings KTRK
The Texans will kick off the regular season against the Indianapolis Colts, in Houston, for the second straight year. Assuming the lockout is over at that point.
