At this point, we know the actors, but when they will actually appear onstage remains to set. 

On December 31, 2012, the NFL announced the 2013 opponents for every team. The schedule has yet to be decided, but should be revealed sometime in April.

As far as the Houston Texans are concerned, they have their usual assortment of AFC South rivals in Jacksonville, Tennessee and Indianapolis. For the other 10 games of the season, they play the Denver Broncos, Oakland Raiders, St. Louis Rams, Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots at home. Their road schedule is comprised of the San Diego Chargers, Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens.

The Texans re-signed their big three free agents during the 2012 regular season when they inked RB Arian Foster, QB Matt Schaub and LT Duane Brown to new deals. Their offseason losses might consist of former starters WR Kevin Walter, NT Shaun Cody, RG Antoine Caldwell and OLB Connor Barwin.

At least one significant addition to the roster is expected in the form of a game-breaking wide receiver, as Andre Johnson, lacking a dangerous option lined up opposite him, will be headed into his 11th NFL season. It could be an underutilized backup like the New York Jet’s Chaz Schilens who, at 6’4, 225 lbs, has the size head coach Gary Kubiak covets.

My money is on a veteran like unrestricted free agent Devery Henderson of the New Orleans Saints. He will be 31 when the season starts, but still possesses the breakaway speed the Texans offense has been lacking.

So here is one view on how the next season might unfold for the defending AFC South Champions.
