The Houston Texans recently revamped their team headquarters in Houston, inviting the 2020 exhibits to revitalize and enliven the space. The new team, named the Houston Texans, partnered with the cattle show and rodeo to build a stadium. Since then, the Texas Longhorns, Texas A & M University and the University of Texas at Austin have been home on the field.
Inspired by this strong championship mentality, the Exhibits 2020 are working to realize the vision of the Houston Texans, who proudly claim to be the second oldest professional football team in the United States. As the Texans play their first home game at NRG Stadium, they are helping to further connect Texans with the history, culture and culture of their home state of Texas.
The win was Henry's second 1,000-yard game in a row and third of the season. Henry ran for a career-high 250 yards in the win that gave the Texans their first AFC South title since 2008. It took just one touchdown and one interception to recover Derrick Henry from his worst performance in a playoff game since his rookie year.
The Colts have improved a lot on defense, but the Texans still have weaknesses on offense in Laremy Tunsil. Indianapolis has horses with more weapons to challenge the secondary while neutralizing Houston's innovations in defense.
If the Colts win, you need the Jaguars to beat them, and if you lose, you need them to win. Houston has hosted two Super Bowls since the Texans moved in, including Super Bowl LI in February 2017. With NRG Stadium hosting Super Bowl XLI in 2017, Texans fans are hoping that one day they will have the opportunity to support their home team and buy into their new home stadium, Houston Texans Stadium.
The Texans won the AFC South Division championship in 2019 and qualified for the NFL playoffs thanks to a 10-6 record. The Texans led 24-0 the following weekend against the Kansas City Chiefs, but lost 51-31 in the end. In their first playoff game of the season, they lost to the New England Patriots 31-20 in overtime and 27-24 the following week. Their 2019 season ended with a loss in the NFC Championship Game to the New York Giants (51-31) on Sunday, December 2, 2019.
The Texans finished the season 11-5 and went on to win five more AFC South championships in 2012, 2015, 2016, 2018 and 2019. This is the second time the Texans have won the championship in the AFCSouth Division under Bill O'Brien. In the team's first year in the league, they finished bottom of the table. They lost in their first playoff game against the New England Patriots 31-20 after overtime and 27-24 a week later against the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Texans have played every other team in the AFC South as a member of the AFCSouth, and all six of their playoff berths have been the result of winning an AFC West Division championship, a division title or a playoff spot in each of those seasons.
The Texans also have a record of never before in the 2015 season against the Indianapolis Colts. The Texans started the season with one loss and lost their first three games to the Colts by a combined 15 points, winning only one, 27-20 at home. Despite a poor start, the Texans won their third AFC South title and finished the season with a 9-7 record.
The eighth straight win over the Miami Dolphins, including five touchdown passes by Deshaun Watson, sparked a nine-game winning streak, the longest since the Texans' 5-0 win in 2012. The Texans clinched their first title in AFC South history, clinching their second consecutive playoff spot and third consecutive AFC West title.
The Texans picked up 11 wins in 11 games and the division title after an 0-3 start and narrowly missed the playoffs. The Texans went 9-7 in the 2014 season, and Watson and Watt stayed healthy through the 2018 season.
Led by outstanding quarterback Matt Schaub, the Texans recorded 11 wins in 11 games in 2011 and the AFC South title, but lost again in the postseason that followed. Led by a strong offensive line led by dominant wide receiver Andre Johnson, they set a franchise record with 12 wins in 2012. The Texans improved, beating the team that defeated them 5-0 in AFCSouth 2012 and holding an 11-1 record through Week 14.
By the end of the 2020 season, the Texans had lost to every team in the NFL at least once. The two teams they had never beaten were the New England Patriots and the New York Giants, two of their closest rivals in NFL history.
The Texans started 2-0 in 2013, but then went into a tailspin and lost every game. At the time of the wild-card round, they had a 4-2 record and lost all four games they played in the division round. O'Brien was fired by the Texans after the 2020 NFL season, which began with a loss to the New York Giants in a playoff game in New Orleans.
