Houston Texans 2023 opponents revealed: Visit the Bengals, host the Buccaneers

The Houston Texans have finished the season 3-13-1 and can look forward to the No. 2 overall pick in the 2023 NFL draft.

Texans fans can also look forward to the following opponents when the 2023 season kicks off.

Houston won’t know the date and times for their opponents until much later in the offseason. However, thanks to the NFL’s scheduling formula implemented in 2002 and tinkered with in 2021 after the introduction of a 17th game, the opponents are already known upon the completion of a season.

The Texans are slated to play the NFC South every four years, the complete AFC North every three years. Their AFC West, AFC East, and NFC West opponents are determined by their respective placements in their division. With Houston finishing last in the AFC South, they get the last place teams in the AFC West, AFC East, and NFC West.
