Texans will fly 17,000+ miles in 2018

Posted Apr 19, 2018

The Texans will do some traveling in the 2018 regular season.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is an updated version of an article that was previously published on January 11, 2018.

The Texans will travel quite a bit in 2018, but not as much as they did last autumn.

With the Thursday release of the 2018 regular season schedule, the Texans now have a better idea of what exactly their fall will look like.

With no trips west of Denver, but four to the mid-Atlantic and Northeast, Houston will log 17,378 roundtrip miles during the 2018 regular season.

AIR MILES TRAVELED IN 2018
OPPONENT ROUND TRIP MILES
WK 1 NEW ENGLAND            3,120         
WK 2 TENNESSEE            1,314
WK 4 INDIANAPOLIS            1,692
WK 7 JACKSONVILLE            1,630
WK 9 DENVER            1,722           
WK 11 WASHINGTON            2,460
WK 15 NEW YORK JETS            2,800
WK 16 PHILADELPHIA            2,640
  
TOTAL          17,378

Their longest flight will be when they travel to New England for a Week 1 matchup with the Patriots.

Their shortest will be the next week, when they fly to Nashville for a showdown with their AFC South foes in the Titans.

In all, only three other seasons will top the 2018 mileage chart, with 2017 being the most. Trips to New England, Seattle, Los Angeles and Baltimore accounted for big chunks of mileage in the air for Houston. 2005 and 2010 also saw the Texans travel 18,398 and 17,518 miles, respectively.

In total, the Texans have flown 252,858 miles during the regular season since they started play in 2002.

All-time, here are the season totals with miles traveled by the Texans.
