For only the third time in franchise history, the Texans will travel north to face the Cowboys in a regular season game. The NFL changes schedules, so that one division in one conference faces a division in the other conference once every four years, meaning the Texans and Cowboys face off as often as the Olympic Games.

The Texans are 2-3 against the Cowboys in franchise history, beating them in Houston in the franchise’s first game in 2002 and then again in 2018 at NRG Stadium. The last time the teams met at the Cowboys AT&T Stadium, the Texans were heartbroken in overtime in 2014 when Tony Romo put JJ Watt on the rotation cycle.

The 2022 schedule opponents for each team are set, but the NFL won’t release game dates until later in the year.

In addition to facing every AFC South opponent twice, the Texans will also face every NFC East and AFC West team. They will also face the Browns, Bears and Dolphins.


The most compelling home games will be the Chiefs coming to town and the rare trips to Houston for the Eagles and the Washington football team. There are some fun road trips on the program for fans who want to travel. In addition to traveling to Arlington for the game against the Cowboys, the Texans will also play in Las Vegas, New York (Giants), Miami, Chicago and Denver.

Here are the Texans’ opponents for 2022:
