Here's everything you need to know about the Texans schedule

The first game of the Houston Texans’ 2021 season will take place at NRG Stadium against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Texans will host the Jags on September 12, 2021 at noon to kick off their new campaign following a 2020 season when the team finished 4-12.

Since then, the team has undergone a massive makeover, whether it be hiring a new GM who’s making a record amount of moves to bring in new players, a new head coach who then put together his own new coaching staff, J.J. Watt getting released and then leaving for Arizona, just to name a few - all this as the Deshaun Watson saga continues.

The Jags have a new head coach themselves in Urban Meyer, and the team recently made waves in bringing in Tim Tebow. However, the headline move for Jaguars fans was the recent NFL Draft and selecting prize quarterback Trevor Lawrence first overall.
