Houston Texans Schedule
The Houston Texans are ready to get in the saddle again in 2014 and face off with some
of the top clubs in the National Football League. Things did not to plan for the Houston Texans last season. The team started
off strong, winning their first two contests of the 2013 campaign, but it all went downhill from there. The Texans struggled
to find consistency in general, and eventually were forced to let head coach Gary Kubiak go before hiring Bill O'Brien from
Penn State. This team is certainly not lacking in the talent department, and that means that 2014 could be a rebound year
for this franchise. With a bevy of difficult home matchups looming this season, the Texans are going to have to elevate their
level of play to secure enough victories to contend for a playoff spot in the AFC.
The Houston Texans will surely be
looking forward to hosting the reigning AFC South champion Indianapolis Colts on October 9th. The Texans were considered to
be the favorite to take home the division title by some pundits last season, but obviously that did not go to plan. The Colts
are a tough team that features one of the best young players in the league in quarterback Andrew Luck. Luck was the top pick
in the NFL Draft just a couple of years ago, and he is already showing signs of realizing the vast potential that he possesses.
The Colts should have a formidable team again this season, so the Texans will be looking to secure a huge win in Indy when
they play there in 2014.
Houston will see the Tennessee Titans visit this season for another divisional matchup on November
20th. The Titans started the season looking good in 2013, but they did not finish strong. They have a tough running game that
features Shonn Greene and rookie Bishop Sankey, and the Texans will have to focus on slowing down the ground game if they
hope to stop the Titans offense. Tennessee also has an exciting signal caller in Jake Locker, who is unproven but has loads
of potential. Locker will look to stay healthy this season and make defenses pay, and the Texans will try to pressure him
often when they head to Nashville this season. There are some other amazing matchups on the docket for the Texans this season,
so make sure to check out the full schedule.
Houston Texans Team Info
The Houston Texans took a step back
in 2013, failing to resemble the solid team they'd been over the past few seasons. Quarterback Matt Schaub seemed to lose
his confidence and the support of the fans early on in the year, and that spelled disaster for a team that actually started
the season 2-0. Schaub has left town and it looks like the team will go with veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick under center. Wide receiver
Andre Johnson showed that he's still one of the best pass-catchers in the National Football League last season, which is always
promising when looking forward. The Texans earned the top pick in the 2014 NFL Draft and used it to draft the incredibly talented
Jadeveon Clowney. It's a new era for the Texans, so fans should be excited to see where this team goes. The team will have
some tough games ahead, but with fans packing the house of NRG Stadium it should make it easier to land some big victories.
This Texans team certainly look to have the ability to post a rebound season in 2014, and you can be there in the stands for
all of the biggest games of the year.
When you head to NRG Stadium to see the Houston Texans
take on one of the best teams in the National Football League, you'll be treated to seeing the epitome of competition. The
players hit the field amped up and ready to compete at the highest level, and that's what keeps the fans coming back for more
each and every season. The Texans always have a roster filled with quality athletes, and they always put on a show for the
fans in attendance.
Anybody that has been to an NFL game in person knows that the atmosphere at a game is simply electric.
It's exciting to be in a sea of fans that are rooting for the home team right along with you, and a sense camaraderie that
comes with that can't be duplicated on a large scale anywhere else. Join the most loyal Texans fans in the stands this season
and see what the NFL experience is all about. It's top-notch football action every time this team takes the field, and you
can be there to see all the action for yourself. Make sure to get out to Reliant Stadium this season to cheer on the Texans.
Houston Texans Trivia

TX home. What team left Houston before the Texans were founded?

Houston Texans History
The Houston Texans joined
the NFL in 2002, bringing the league back to Houston after the Houston Oilers had left the city for Nashville where they became
the Tennessee Titans who now stand as one of the most hated rivals of the Texans. The name Texans had been previously used
by the Dallas Texans of the AFL who went on to become the Kansas City Chiefs. Bob McNair, owner of the Texans, had to make
a deal with Kansas City Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt to get the rights to use the nickname Texans. Clay Walker's song It's Football
Time in Houston is the team's theme song, but the defense is known for taking the field to the song Bulls on Parade by Rage
Against the Machine.
