Football is back, and we've got you covered if you plan to head to NRG Stadium this season.

Here's what you need to know to be game day ready.

Key home games

1. Los Angeles Chargers, Week 4

We're sure the Chargers haven't forgotten the Texans essentially spoiled their bid for the playoffs last season with an upset 12-point win in Houston.

  • Details: Sunday, Oct. 2, noon

2. Philadelphia Eagles, Week 8

The NFL gave the Texans only one prime-time game, and this is it.

  • Details: Thursday, Nov. 3, 7:15pm

3. Cleveland Browns, Week 12

This is the first game that former Texans, now Browns, quarterback Deshaun Watson will be eligible to play this season. Watson, who was accused by more than two dozen women of sexual assault and sexual misconduct during massages, is serving an 11-game suspension.

  • Details: Sunday, Dec. 4, noon
