The NFL announced they will be releasing all 32 NFL 2014 regular season team schedules, and that includes the Houston Texans, on Wednesday night at 8 p.m.

Both ESPN and the NFL Network will air special shows on the schedule releases.

Last season, the Texans were an NFL worst 2-14 overall, losing their final 14 games. Their two wins were against the San Diego Chargers and the Tennessee Titans. This upcoming season they have a new head coach in Bill O’Brien, whom they hired from Penn State.

Before last season, the Texans won a playoff game for two consecutive seasons, and two consecutive AFC South division championships.

With their record from last season, the Texans have the No. 1 overall selection in the 2014 NFL Draft, which will be held on Thursday, May 8 through Saturday, May 10 on ESPN and the NFL Network.

Before then, in no order, here are the opponents the Texans will be facing in 2014:

• Indianapolis Colts (11-5) (home, away)
