Houston Texans' 2013 Preseason Schedule Announced


The Houston Texans found out their 2013 Preseason opponents today, two weeks before we learn of when and where the Texans will play in the regular season come September. Here’s a look:

Week 1 – at Minnesota Vikings

Week 2 – vs. Miami Dolphins

Week 3 – vs. New Orleans Saints

Week 4 – at Dallas Cowboys

Times and dates are yet to be released, but we should get to see the Texans take on some new faces early on. Even though star players will take very few snaps, the Texans defense will shape up to new wide receivers Greg Jennings and Mike Wallace against the Vikings and Dolphins, while also facing Tony Romo fresh off a new contract signing.

The match up against the Dolphins is the second since 2002. And the Texans recent history with the Cowboys has been few and far between, since Houston haven’t played Dallas at all since 2010.

More on times and dates soon.
