Texans preview: Make-or-break stretch

August, 27, 2014
The Texans' schedule is favorable this season. They have the benefit of playing a last-place schedule, rather than the brutal first-place schedule they played in 2013. Their NFC matchup is also kinder -- the NFC East instead of the daunting NFC West. But the month before their bye week could prove to be a serious barometer. These things always change during the season, but, as it appears right now, that is the toughest part of the Texans' schedule -- and it will include two division games. They'll face the Indianapolis Colts, Pittsburgh Steelers, Tennessee Titans and fast-paced Philadelphia Eagles. However that stretch goes, the Texans' will go into their bye week with plenty of time to think about it.
