Deep Dive: Texans 2020 Road Games | Daily Brew

The Texans go on the road eight times in 2020. Now, I know what I need to say next...if, IF we play the schedule as was laid out before us on Thursday evening. So, I'm not going to mess with that and I'm going to go with the plan.

Eight road games. Eight trips to take. Here's how I look at those trips.

1. Kansas City - Thursday September 10, 2020 7:20 PM CST

Things to look forward to:
Burnt ends BBQ
Raucous environment at Arrowhead - a wonderful football venue
Opportunity to ruin a celebratory night

2. Pittsburgh - Sunday September 27, 2020 12:00 PM CST

Things to look forward to:
A three Watt reunion

A fantastic city to walk around and visit the day before the game

Could be hotter than usual - for a guy in long-sleeve shirt, tie and pullover, that's a concern
Ben should be back
That defense...ooof.
