2021 Houston Texans schedule: Times and dates announced

·2 min read

The Houston Texans announced their full 2021 NFL schedule.

It was known earlier Wednesday that the Texans would host the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1 at NRG Stadium. It is the first time the Texans will open up at home since 2017, when they incidentally played the Jaguars.

However, the Texans and Jaguars will both be debuting new coaches as David Culley will see his first action on the sidelines going against Urban Meyer. Both are rookie coaches, but had different routes to getting the top jobs for their respective clubs.

As the Texans work through their roster challenges, including who will be the starting quarterback, Houston takes on the rest of the AFC South, the AFC East, the NFC West, their same-place finishers — Los Angeles Chargers and Cleveland Browns — and the new 17th game, which will be against the Carolina Panthers.

Here is a look at the entire Texans schedule.

“We’re just kind of getting started here,” general manager Nick Caserio said at the Texans’ charity golf classic on Monday. “Football season is just about to start. We’re excited about the opportunity in front of us and I think that’s the most important thing is just focus on today and just keep moving forward.”

All games will be broadcast on the radio in Houston on Sports Radio 610 [KILT-AM] and across the Texans Radio Network.
