NFL Schedule Release: The Houston Texans Release 2022 Game Schedules Including Cowboys, Browns, Raiders Matchups

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — Deshaun Watson’s potential return to Houston looks set to be the hottest, most dramatic ticket to buy in the Texans’ 2022 season.

The Texans will announce the dates for the 17 games and a bye-bye week in their Thursday night schedule, which will be released along with the release of the league-wide schedule, which has become a major annual event in recent years associated with the NFL Draft is comparable and the Super Bowl.

The reveal is scheduled for 7pm CT.

While select teams have already announced specific dates and matchups, particularly those with primetime placement, the Texans have yet to reveal any information.

However, there were leaks when Chicago broadcaster Danny Perkins reported that the Texans will visit the Bears in week 3 on September 25th.

As part of the NFL’s standard inter- and intra-conference rotation, the 2022 Texans will face off against the NFC East and AFC West, as well as two other AFC teams that competed in comparable division positions and the de facto “17th place” last season. by the NFC, which is determined by ranking, rotation and previous matchup frequency.

And as always, Houston has games home and away with its three AFC South rivals.

So what are the matchups to watch when the schedule drops later this week?

Cleveland Browns: Deshaun WatsonThe potential return of NRG Stadium will be something for those who drool over storylines in old-fashioned football games. Watson, who the Texans sold to Cleveland after the QB fell out with management and was later hounded with sexual misconduct allegations, could be the center of attention when he plays his first game in Houston since the end of the 2020 season. (Watson was a healthy scratch for all of the Texans’ games in 2021.) It’s still unclear what the NFL will do in response to the Watson scandal, but suspensions for all or part of the season are possible.

But this year the I-45 rivalry will be played in the regular season for the sixth time since the Texans became an NFL club in 2002. The Cowboys lead the series 3-2, but Houston won the last matchup: a 19-16 overtime thriller in 2018. This year’s game will be in Arlington.

Philly Eagles: Not much to shout about on this game’s side, other than Philly’s big offseason moves, including taking on Titans wide receiver AJ Brown. But this will serve as a sentimental homecoming Eagles QB Jalen hurts, who rose to the top of the recruiting lists while playing for Channelview High School.
