About Houston Texans
History of the Houston Texans
The Houston Texans began playing in 2002 as an expansion team, making them the youngest franchise in the NFL. The Texans replaced Houston’s previous NFL franchise, the Houston Oilers, who moved to Nashville as the Tennessee Titans. Due to their young nature, the Texans are one of the only teams in the NFL who have not made it to the Super Bowl, along with the Cleveland Browns, Jacksonville Jaguars, and the Detroit Lions. The Texans have played their home games at NRG Stadium for sixteen seasons. The stadium opening in August 2002 and has a capacity of 72,220. NRG Stadium was the first facility in the NFL to have a retractable roof. Bill O’Brien has been the head coach of the Texans since 2014. J.J. Watts has also been a notable component of this young AFC South team. Watt is a defensive end who has made a major impact in his first six seasons with the Texans. He has had 299 tackles, 76 sacks, and 45 passes defended making him one of the best defensive ends in the NFL. If J.J. Watts continues to play with this much tenacity, he will be able to do great things for the Texans.
2017 Houston Texans Season
The Houston Texans finished the 2017 regular season 4-12, subsequently not making the playoffs. A contributing factor to this poor performance was due to Deshaun Watson and J.J. Watts both sustaining season ending injuries. During a Week 5 game against the Kansas City Chiefs, J.J. Watt endured a leg injury in the first quarter. Then after a loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 9, Watson tore his ACL during practice and immediately was considered out for the rest of the season. With the Texans losing two major players from injuries, a successful season seemed bleak for the Houston team. Although the Texans finished in last place in the AFC South, they will be ready to improve this season with their healthy players.
2018 Houston Texans Season
The Texans acquired seven rookies in the2018 NFL Draft. The Texans top two picks included safety Justin Reid from Stanford and offensive line Martinas Rankin from Mississippi State. The Texans also resigned running back Alfred Blue. Deshaun Watson and J.J. Watt are expected to make a full recovery and return for the 2018 season. The 2018 Houston Texans season will kick off on September 9th at Gillette Stadium against the New England Patriots. Their first home game will not be until Week 3 when the Texans take on the New York Giants. The Texans will also have to face their division rivals Tennessee Titans, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Indianapolis Colts to fight for a spot in the postseason. Do you want to see the return of J.J.
