Houston Texans schedule: Week 1

Sep. 11Colts1:00 PM ESTCBS

Houston Texans roster outlook

All our predictions are based on the Texans keeping and starting these key players

  • QB: Davis Mills
  • RB: Marlon Mack, Rex Burkhead
  • WR: Brandin Cooks, Nico Collins, Chris Conley, John Metchie III, Chris Moore
  • TE: Brevin Jordan, Pharaoh Brown
  • OL: Laremy Tunsil, Kenyon Green, Justin Britt, AJ Cann, Tytus Howard

With former Bears head coach and recent Texans defensive coordinator Lovie Smith taking over, starting quarterback Davis Mills will not be forced to learn a completely new system in his second season as the signal-caller.

On the defensive side, the team drafted the next best cornerback in the draft after Ahmad Gardner, Derek Stingley, Jr., to help bolster the defense and give them a much-needed secondary ace to help turn the team’s fortunes around in 2022.
