The Texans will make just their second trip to Los Angeles in team history when they face the Chargers. These are two teams with high hopes after each team qualified for the playoffs last year.
For much of the season, it seemed the Chargers and Texans were on a collision course toward the postseason and that was thrown off course at the end of the regular season. The Chargers advanced past the Wild Card round while the Texans were defeated at home by the Indianapolis Colts.
The Texans start the season on the road against the New Orleans Saints then host the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 2.
