The NFL announced the complete 2022 schedule on Thursday, and the Houston Texans are officially set to kick off their 2022 season at home against the Indianapolis Colts at 1 p.m. ET on CBS. That, of course, is a divisional game and their next one will come in Week 5 at the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Houston had a 4-13 record in 2021 and finished in third place in the AFC South. They traded away quarterback Deshaun Watson and seem content handing the reigns of the offense to second-year quarterback Davis Mills. The Texans didn’t sign any big names in free agency but brought in a ton of depth to overhaul their team on both sides of the ball. Houston took a cornerback and offensive guard in the first round and picked up Alabama WR John Metchie III in the second round.

All times listed are Eastern.
