Texans at Chiefs: TV schedule, radio, live stream, where to watch
The first game of the 2020 NFL season features the Houston Texans against the Kansas City Chiefs.
It is time for the 2020 NFL season to get started and who better to help kickoff the very first game of the season than the Houston Texans traveling to take on the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs?
The story has been retold more times than Houston Texans fans would like to remember, but the Texans had the worst collapse in franchise history the last time they were on the field in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. That was then and this is now, as the Chiefs went on to win the Super Bowl and the Texans have made some vast changes to their roster, with the biggest change being trading DeAndre Hopkins due to contract issues.
Now with the Houston Texans scheduled to face the same team they last played in a game, it is time for Deshaun Watson and J.J. Watt to get the Texans back on track — and back in the saddle so to speak — as it is time to concentrate on the 2020 NFL season and leave everything else in the past.
Watt missed eight games last season, but returned for the playoffs though he wasn’t his usual self. This will be the 10th season for Watt, but he also looks to be in some of the very best shape in his career, so if he can stay healthy he’ll be a force for the team.
Watson was rewarded for his outstanding career thus far with a new contract extension this offseason that made him a very wealthy man. He’s also one of the highest paid two players in the entire NFL, with the other being Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

Texans at Chiefs: Thoughts entering Week 1
This is a very tough way for any team to start the season, but for the Houston Texans facing the team who they lost a 24-0 lead in a playoff game to is even tougher. The Texans should play well this season, but facing Kansas City in Week 1 isn’t ideal.
Not many folks believe in the Houston Texans as they are +10 underdogs this week by the oddsmakers, but with Deshaun Watson under center he’ll make the rest of his teammates better. The Texans might not be the favorites, but they are also far from being a push over too, as they can’t afford to be dominated in the first game of the season.
