The Texans will travel quite a bit in 2018, but not as much as they did last autumn.

With the Thursday release of the 2018 regular season schedule, the Texans now have a better idea of what exactly their fall will look like.

With no trips west of Denver, but four to the mid-Atlantic and Northeast, Houston will log 17,378 roundtrip miles during the 2018 regular season.

Their shortest will be the next week, when they fly to Nashville for a showdown with their AFC South foes in the Titans.
