The Houston Texans 2017 schedule is finally out.

The release of the NFL schedule has to be the most over-hyped “events” of the NFL offseason.

While it’s hard to predict just how things will go in an NFL season before it even starts, getting an early look at the schedule might give us an idea of how things could turn out.

Here’s the Texans’ full 2017 schedule along with some analysis:

Week 1 – Sept. 10, vs. Jacksonville Jaguars, 1 p.m., CBS

The Texans will get to face off against A.J. Bouye after leaving the Lone Star state this offseason for more money with the Jaguars.

Week 2 – Sept. 14, @Cincinnati Bengals, 8:25 p.m., NFL Network

The Bengals missed the playoffs last year, but you can’t sleep on them bouncing back this year. This game won’t be easy.

Week 3 – Sept. 24, @New England Patriots, 1 p.m., CBS

Good luck winning this game. That’s all I have to say.

Week 4 – Oct. 1, vs. Tennessee Titans, 1 p.m., CBS

Two division games within the first four weeks of the season. It would be great if the Texans could start 2-0 in the AFC South.

Week 5 – Oct. 8, vs. Kansas City Chiefs, 8:30 p.m., NBC

This is a huge game against a very good Chiefs team. Could be the difference between the Texans being above .500 or not.

Week 6 – Oct. 15, vs. Cleveland Browns, 1 p.m., CBS

Should be an easy win.

Week 7 – BYE

You can’t beat a mid-season bye.

Week 8 – Oct. 29, @Seattle Seahawks, 4:05 p.m., CBS

A game in Seattle is never easy no what time of year it is.

Week 9 – Nov. 5, vs. Indianapolis Colts, 1 p.m., CBS

This could be a tough game after playing the Seahawks out west.

Week 10 – Nov. 12, @LA Rams, 4:05 p.m., CBS

I wouldn’t sleep on the Rams this year.

Week 11 – Nov. 19, vs. Arizona Cardinals, 1 p.m., FOX

The Cardinals could be in for a bounce back year.

week 12 – Nov. 27, @Baltimore Ravens, 8:30 p.m., ESPN 

It could be chilly in Baltimore on a late November Monday night. The Texans will be out of their element.

Week 13 – Dec. 3, @Tennessee Titans, 1 p.m., CBS

This game could have playoff implications

Week 14 – Dec. 10, vs. San Francisco 49ers, 1 p.m., FOX

This may not be an automatic win.

Week 15 – Dec. 17, @Jacksonville Jaguars, 1 p.m., CBS

I wonder if the Jaguars will be in the playoff race at this point in the season.

Week 16 – Dec. 25, (Saturday) vs. Pittsburgh Steelers , 4:30 p.m., NBC

Brutal match up late in the season against a very good Steelers team.

Week 17 – Dec. 31, @Indianapolis Colts, 1 p.m., CBS

Like the Jags game in week 15, this could decide the division.
