The Houston Texans became a charter member of the NFL’s American Football Conference in the year 2000 and began play in 2002. When the Houston Oilers moved to Tennessee in 1997, Bob McNair began the process of bringing an expansion franchise to the city of Houston. Once the NFL granted a new franchise to Cleveland in 1998 to replace the Browns, it seemed logical that the NFL would grant one more expansion team so the league would have an even thirty-two teams. In 2000, the NFL awarded a new football club to Los Angeles. However, when the LA ownership group failed to put together a stadium deal satisfactory to the NFL, the league then granted the new franchise to McNair’s group in Houston.

Once the franchise was secured by Houston, the organization formed focus groups across the state of Texas to determine the new team’s name. Eventually, the name Texans was chosen because it was considered to be unique to both the state of Texas and to the NFL. The new franchise was also given the rights to the 2004 Super Bowl, which would be played in the newly constructed Reliant Stadium. The new facility opened in 2002 and was the NFL’s first stadium with a retractable roof.

The Texans played their first game in September 2002 against the Dallas Cowboys in the Texans’ brand new stadium. The Texans defeated the Cowboys and would also win the opening game in their sophomore campaign. They were the first expansion club to achieve this feat. The Texans were also the first expansion team to send two players to the Pro Bowl after their first season of play.

During the 2009 season, most of the team’s players had outstanding seasons; quarterback Matt Schaub finished the year with the sixth highest passing yards in a single season in NFL history, and receiver Andre Johnson lead the league with 103 receptions. However, it would not be until 2011 that the Texans finally qualified for the post season. They won their first playoff game in team history but lost in the second round. The club would repeat this achievement again the next season but falter during the 2013 season, going 2 to 14.
