The Houston Texans were oh so close to reaching the Super Bowl last season. Without all of the injuries, the Texans could compete with anyone.

With a healthy Matt Schaub, Andre Johnson and Arian Foster, the offense should be effective. The defense has lost Mario Williams, but they played well without him after he went down in Week 5.

Texans fans have a lot to look forward to, so let's take a look at the schedule.

Analysis:

Which game on the schedule poses the biggest challenge?

Submit Vote vote to see results

The Texans and Titans figure to battle it out for AFC South supremacy. The Texans take on the NFC North this year, with rough stops in Chicago and Detroit, so the schedule is no cakewalk.

At least the Packers' game is at home, but this team's defense will be tested often.

They will see five top-notch QBs during the season:

Peyton Manning, Jay Cutler, Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady and Matt Stafford.

We will find out just how good the Texans' defense really is.

If all major pieces are healthy, the Houston offense is among the best in the NFL. That may be the Texans biggest impediment to repeating as AFC South champions.

 

Most Pivotal Matchup:

The final meeting with the Tennessee Titans could very well have division championship implications. This should be a dogfight all season long, and this game could bring everything to a head.
