The Houston Texans are a member of AFC South in the NFL. Based in Houston, Texas, the team joined the NFL in 2002 as an expansion team to replace the franchise formerly known as the Houston Oilers. After failing to bring a hockey team to the city, Bob McNair and Steve Patterson began an endeavor to bring a football team to Houston. In September 2002, the Houston Texans began their first season, playing in the new Reliant Stadium.
Although the Texans struggled initially, head coach Gary Kubiak soon stepped in and helped Houston to its first postseason in 2009 with a 9-7 record. Still not a deep playoff team, the Houston Texans then hired former Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips as their defensive coordinator, which led the team to its first AFC South title in 2011. The Texans were then able to repeat and win a second division title the following year, but again fell short of the championship. As a newer NFL team, the Houston Texans are still building their history and the addition of many noteworthy players to their roster is sure to result in victory. Players, like Matt Schaub, J.J. Watt, and Brian Cushiing, constantly strive for success and are favorites among football fans.
