Which road games intrigue
The Texans will play four times on national television in 2017.
The schedule came out Thursday, and Houston will travel to Cincinnati for a Thursday-nighter in Week 2, host the Chiefs on Sunday Night Football in Week 5, and face the Ravens in Baltimore the Monday night after Thanksgiving in Week 12.
Their Christmas Day affair with the Steelers at NRG Stadium will be on NBC, the NFL Network and streamed on Amazon as well. But kickoff that afternoon is at 3:30 CT.
Thus, they're slated with three prime-timers this season.
The Texans played five prime-time games in 2016. In franchise history, they've played 29 games at night.
