Wednesday evening will be a very fun time for all NFL fans, as we’ll get to see tonight at 8 p.m. ET in what order who all 32 NFL teams will get to face in the 2014 regular season with the release of the schedules on ESPN and the NFL Network.

With the release of the NFL schedules, it will give us something else to talk about as the season gets closer, but before the release of the actual schedule, who does everyone think will be the Week 1 opponent of the Houston Texans?

I’m going to say the NFL goes with divisional rivalries to open the season, so my choice is the Texans will play vs. the Jacksonville Jaguars to open the 2014 season, and that’s just a total guess.

On Twitter I asked the same question, and one follower guessed the Baltimore Ravens.

Now how fun would that be? The Ravens not only signed former Texans tight end Owen Daniels this offseason, but picked up former Texans head coach Gary Kubiak as their offensive coordinator. That game, whenever it is played, will be a reunion of Texans present and Texans past.

Wednesday should be a fun day/evening for all NFL fans, as a lot of us are very interested in the release of the schedules.

In other Texans news:

• The Houston Chronicle has a preview on the potential running backs the Texans could be interested in during the 2014 NFL Draft, as they are looking to replace Ben Tate, who left via free agency.

CSN Houston has an article with the headline: “Bridgewater’s football IQ in question.”

NFL.com says The Texans could make a pick with the No. 1 overall selection, then trade that player later in the draft, like the San Diego Chargers and New York Giants did with Eli Manning and Philip Rivers in 2004.

Kony Ealy says he’s the best defensive end in the draft, in this USA Today article.

• Here is an pro day article from House of Houston.
