The Texans are still one of the youngest, and least storied NFL franchises. They’re a relatively young 17 years old going into next season. As a result, they don’t have a deep franchise history, with no Super Bowl wins or Conference titles to their credit so far. They do have 3 division titles, having won the AFC South in 2011, 2012, 2015. They have yet to see a Hall of Fame player hit their field, but they have drafted Pro Bowl players in Andre Johnson, Jason Babin, Mario Williams, Duane Brown, J.J. Watt, and DeAndre Hopkins.
Watt is the current face of the franchise. A defensive monster, he holds the Texans franchise records for both sacks and forced fumbles. Also, in 2014, Watt became the first player in NFL history to record two 20+ sack seasons in a career.

Houston Texans Record
Key dates in the team history. September 8, 2002: Their first game ever against the Dallas Cowboys at Reliant. They beat the Cowboys19-10, and were the second expansion team ever to win their first game.
How strong is the team within its division/conference? After years as an expansion team cellar-dweller and punching bag, the Texans have built a winner.
What are the team’s main strengths vs weaknesses? The team’s defence is flagged by Watt and DeAndre Hopkins. Unfortunately they lack that much talent on offense, which often puts too much pressure on the D. They’re well coached, but have struggled to put together the full package that will take them to the next level.
How far does the team usually go in the league? This team has gone from bottom of the pile, to middle of the pack. If the offensive ever clicks, and the defence stays healthy, they are a threat to make a move in the playoff picture. If not, they will still hover around .500.
