The Houston Texans had their debut in Canton, Ohio, during the 2002 Pro Football Hall of Fame Game. This game only served to prove to owner Bob McNair that his dream of bringing a professional football team back to Houston was becoming a reality. The city's previous franchise, the Houston Oilers, moved to Tennessee in 1997. Naturally, McNair's journey to create a new football team for Houston began that same year when he grabbed the attention of NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue at a fall owner's meeting. McNair found that his Houston team was in a race against Los Angeles to be dubbed the 32nd franchise in the league. After Los Angeles' bid fell through, the NFL owners had a landslide vote to award Houston the franchise spot. It wouldn't be until September 2000 that the team would be named the Houston Texans. The Texans won its very first game as a new franchise when it defeated the Dallas Cowboys 19–10 in 2002. This win in this debut game marked the first time that such an event took place since another expansion team won its debut game in 1961. You can find tickets to all of the Houston Texans games at NRG Stadium and in other cities around the country at StubHub.
