Houston Texans

TEAM HISTORY

The Texans are the city’s second NFL franchise after the Houston Oilers who played in Houston from 1960-96 before moving to Tennessee, becoming the Tennessee Titans.

Founder Bob McNair was granted the Houston expansion team in 1999.

With the first overall pick of the 2002 draft, the Texans selected quarterback David Carr from Fresno State. Carr played with the team from 2002-06.

In their first home opening game, the Texans defeated the Dallas Cowboys, 19-10. It’s the first time an expansion team had won its opening game since the Minnesota Vikings defeated the Chicago Bears in 1961.

The Texans won their first division championship in 2011 and clinched their first playoff berth. They have since gone on to win five more AFC South championships in 2012, 2015, 2016, 2018, and 2019.
