In 2013, the NFL passed a rule that the league could compel a team to appear on Hard Knocks, as long as the team did not have a first-year head coach, had not made the playoffs over the past two seasons and had not appeared on the show in the previous 10 years. Houston was one of nine teams eligible to be forced to participate in 2015.

The Texans finished 9-7 in 2014, just missing the playoffs.
