Breakdown: We already knew the Texans were going to have the third weakest strength of schedule in the NFL before the schedule release, and that they were only to face one road opponent who had a winning record in 2013. Last season figured to be perilous, as the Texans faced a first-place schedule and the daunting NFC West. This season, a last-place schedule and the less formidable NFC East will offer a smoother road for new head coach Bill O'Brien and his staff.via - NFL Nation
