The Houston Texans are a professional American football team based in Houston, Texas. The Texans compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member club of the American Football Conference (AFC) South division. The team plays its home games at NRG Stadium.
The History of the Texans
Both the Houston Oilers and the expansion Houston Texans began play in 1960 as members of the American Football League (AFL). The Oilers moved to the NFL in 1970 as part of the AFL-NFL merger. The team played its home games at the Astrodome from 1960 to 1964 and then at Rice Stadium from 1965 to 1967. Harvey Johnson was the first head coach of the Houston Oilers and led the team for its first three seasons. He was succeeded by Wally Lemm, who coached the team for 11 seasons (1961-1971). The franchise’s first general manager was Don Klosterman, who oversaw both the Oilers and Texans.
In 1972, the Oilers began play in the AFC Central division against their in-state rivals, the Dallas Cowboys, as well as against the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals. The team had moderate success in its first few years, making it to the playoffs four times in 11 seasons. However, they failed to make it past the first round of the playoffs until 1978, when they made it all the way to the AFC Championship game before losing to Pittsburgh 27-13. The 1978 season would prove to be one of only a few bright spots for Houston during their time in the AFC Central; for most of their time in this division, they were either last or second-to-last place.
In 2002, things began to look up for Houston when they joined forces with new head coach Dom Capers and drafted quarterback David Carr with their first overall pick in that year’s NFL draft. The team finally had a season worth celebrating in 2009; led by their young star quarterback Matt Schaub and newly acquired wide receiver Andre Johnson, they won their first division title with a 9-7 record. They went on to lose their playoff game against Baltimore 20-13.
