Ravens-Texans re-scheduled for Nov. 9; Bengals bye-week moved to make room

Cold, Hard Football Facts for Sep 14, 2008



(Ed. note: this is the NFL's statement about how it's going to make up the Baltimore-Houston game. Basically, Cincy's bye will be moved from October 26 to November 9, allowing the Ravens-Texans to play their game on that later date. Here's the NFL on the subject.)
 
Due to extensive damage at Reliant Stadium and the devastation in Houston and the surrounding areas caused by Hurricane Ike, the Texans' home game against the Ravens originally slated for Week 2 has been rescheduled for Sunday, November 9 at Reliant Stadium at noon Houston time (1 p.m. ET) on CBS.
 
Short notice made it logistically impossible to play this week at alternate sites. The change in dates also affects Cincinnati's bye-week schedule.

Sunday, November 9      Baltimore at Houston  

Houston's bye has been changed from Sunday, October 26 to Sunday, September 14.
 
The Texans' next two games will take place as scheduled on the road - Sunday, September 21 against Tennessee at LP Field and Sunday, September 28 against Jacksonville at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium.
