Remember the Time: The Beginnings of the Houston Texans

Publish date:

With the Houston Texans completing their 10th year as a franchise in the NFL it is always good to look at your humble beginnings, and the Texans have come from a new franchise 10 years ago to the verge of one of the most exciting football teams in the NFL. It feels like the Texans have been here in Houston forever, but they are the youngest franchise in the NFL and have shown it at times. To mark what could be one of the most anticipated seasons we need to remember what it took to get the Texans where they are today.
