We have games to look forward to, hypothetically - as the Coronavirus pandemic could result in a delay to the start of the NFL season. However, the NFL released its full slate of tentative games for all 32 teams on Thursday night, and we have some key matchups on the docket! First for the Houston Texans:
We have a BIG game to start the NFL season. Literally, it's the first regular season game that will kick off the 2020 NFL campaign on Thursday Night Football. The Houston Texans will face off against the defending Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs on September 10th at 7:20 p.m. Central Time in a rematch of the wild AFC Divisional Round playoff game this past season. The Texans are looking for revenge after the Chiefs came back from down 24 points to route the Bulls on Parade 51 to 31 en route to their eventual Super Bowl win. What a way to start the season! Other key games include a Week 2 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens, Week 11 against the New England Patriots, and two games in three weeks against Philip Rivers and the Indianapolis Colts in Week 13 and 15 - faceoffs that could have AFC South title implications.

The Dallas Cowboys have their own prime time game to start their season, as they have the Sunday night slot in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Rams in the new, fancy, schmancy So-Fi Stadium in the City of Angels on September 13th at 7:20 p.m. Central Time. The state-of-the-art facility has been a glaring storyline ever since the Rams made their move to Southern California, and the bright Hollywood Lights will be shining down on what should be a glitzy debut with America's Team coming to town. Key matchups throughout the Cowboys season include a Week 3 showdown with the Seattle Seahawks in the Emerald City, a Sunday night Week 8 date with the hated Philadelphia Eagles in Philly, and another Sunday Night Football appearance against NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers in Week 15.
