NFL Schedule 2012: Texans' First Test Comes Week 3 Against Broncos

The Houston Texans face their old division foe Peyton Manning on Sunday when they travel to Mile High to face the Denver Broncos. The Texans will be seeking their first 3-0 start in franchise history.

The Broncos (1-1) will be on a short week after losing Monday night on the road to the Atlanta Falcons. The Texans (2-0) are coming off two easy wins over the Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars to start the season. The matchup against playoff-hopeful Denver will provide a much better barometer as to what kind of team the defending AFC South champions have in 2012. Sunday's game will kick off at 3:25 p.m. and be televised by CBS.

Elsewhere across the division, the 0-2 Tennessee Titans host the Detroit Lions and the 0-2 Jacksonville Jaguars travel to face the 1-1 Indianapolis Colts.

Here's the rest of the Week 3 slate. All times are CT. Check out the rest of the schedule on SI.com:
