The Houston Texans are a professional American football team based in Houston, Texas. The team competes in the National Football League (NFL) as a member club of the American Football Conference (AFC) South division. The Texans first played in 2002 as an expansion team after Houston's previous franchise, the Houston Oilers, moved to Nashville, Tennessee, where they are now the Tennessee Titans. The team's majority owner is Bob McNair. The team clinched its first playoff berth during the 2011 season as AFC South division champions. The Texans repeated as AFC South champions in 2012 and 2015.
In 1997, Houston entrepreneur Bob McNair had a failed bid to bring a National Hockey League (NHL) expansion team to the city, and Bud Adams relocated the city's NFL team, the Houston Oilers, to Nashville where they were renamed the Tennessee Titans. In 1996, a year earlier, the Cleveland Browns had controversially relocated to become the Baltimore Ravens. As part of the settlement between the NFL, the city of Clevelandand the team owned by Art Modell, the league promised to return football to Cleveland within the following three years.
In order to even out the franchisees at 32, the league also contemplated adding another expansion franchise. As Houston was one of the favorites for the extra franchise along with Toronto and Los Angeles (which had lost the Rams and the Raiders in 1995), McNair then decided to join the football project and founded Houston NFL Holdings with partner Steve Patterson. In association with Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, they would push for a domed stadium as part of the bid to lure the NFL back to Houston. On October 6, 1999 the NFL awarded the 32nd team to Houston, at the cost of $700 million.
The Houston Texans joined the league at the 2002 NFL season, playing at the newly founded Reliant Stadium. While the team struggled in early seasons, results began to improve once native Houstonian Gary Kubiak became the head coach in 2006. The Texans finished with a .500 season (8-8) in both 2007 and 2008, and nearly qualified for the 2009–10 NFL playoffs with a 9–7 result in 2009. In 2010, the team started the season on a 4–2 record going into a Week 7 bye week, but promptly collapsed 2–8 in the second part of the season, finishing 6–10. The following season, former Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips was hired as the defensive coordinator of the Texans, and the improved defense led to the Texans finishing 10–6, winning their first AFC South title. The Texans then beat wild card Cincinnati Bengals 31–10 in the first round of the2011-12 NFL playoffs, before a 20–13 defeat by the Ravens in the semifinals.
The Texans surged as the team to beat in the AFC South in 2012, holding an 11–1 record by week 14. However, they lost three of their last four games to finish 12–4; beating the rival Indianapolis Colts in that four-game stretch allowed them to clinch their 2nd AFC South title. The Texans beat the Bengals again in the wild-card round, but they lost in the second round to the New England Patriots. The Texans started 2–0 in 2013 but went into a tailspin and lost every game afterwards. Head Coach Kubiak was fired after being swept by the rival Jacksonville Jaguars, who themselves started 0–8. Wade Phillips filled in as head coach, but the Texans' poor form did not change, and they finished 2–14, tying, with 2005, their worst record in franchise history. The 14-game losing streak is also the worst in franchise history.
The Texans entered the 2014 season with a 14-game losing streak. Former Penn State head coach Bill O'Brien became the Texans' new head coach, and the third in franchise history, during the offseason. In 2014, the Texans won three of their first four games, defeating the Redskins in the season opener, the Raiders, and the Bills, losing to the New York Giants. They lost three of their next four games, losing to the Dallas Cowboys, the Indianapolis Colts, and the Pittsburgh Steelers, respectively. The Texans went on to finish 9–7 in the 2014 season and barely missed the playoffs.
In the 2015 season, the Texans started with a 2–5 record. Quarterback Ryan Mallett was released amidst controversy regarding his benching in favor of Brian Hoyer during a loss against the Indianapolis Colts. Former Texans quarterback T.J. Yates has been signed to back up Hoyer for the rest of the season.After a poor start, the Texans finished with a 9–7 record and won their third AFC South title.
On March 9, 2016, the Texans signed Brock Osweiler to a 4-year, $72 Million dollar deal.
The Texans’ 11-year-old home, NRG Stadium, remains one of the premier NFL stadiums in the league. NRG Stadium will be where Superbowl LI will be played, Sunday, Feb. 5, 2017.
NRG Stadium is the 13th largest stadium in the league, the formerly named Reliant Stadium has an official capacity of 71,500, and has hosted several major sporting events, including Super Bowl XXXVIII, the 2011 NCAA Final Four and the annual Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

Texans games are always a blast
|When our family goes to a Texans game we have a blast. If you are visiting Houston you have to see a Texans game. Our friends have season tickets on the 500 level and it is a nice view. Hopefully they will make the playoffs this year.|

|Me and my friends were having a hard time deciding whether or not we could make it to the Texans v Titans game last season. When we finally sorted it all out nearly all of the good tickets were sold out. When we checked this site we were able to find just enough tickets for all of us to sit together. Not to mention we got a good view for the cost.|

|I while ago I got a gift card for this place and completely forgot about it till just last week when I wanted to check out the Houston Texansâ€™ pre-season game. There was only $15 dollars on there but with the cost of the tickets when I checked that practically paid for one of the two tickets I bought, and I still got a good view for the price. Was really happy to get to see our Texans kick the Jets butt for so little money. GO TEXANS!|

|I was so close to the Texans v Saints game I could see Mario Williamsâ€™ hand make contact with the ball when he smacked it away from Drew Brees! This site is great!|
|Bottom line: Alana would recommend this event to their best friend|
|I wasnâ€™t sure if itâ€™d be worth getting season tickets this but, but seeing our offense in the preseason, plus a much improved defense I finally decided to get some. But I couldnâ€™t find any decent seats this close to the seasonâ€™s opening game. But I found some great lower level spots near the 30 yard line just a few weeks away from the opening game. Highly recommend this site.|

|MyTicketin.com sold me 2 tickets for the Houston Texans vs Carolina Panthers. The tickets were in the FRONT ROW 50 yardline. Best tickets ever. Thank you|

Why I like My Ticket In.Com
|I like MyTicketIn.com because it's Houston-based, the price is competitive, and most of all, you can easily email or call a person and get a quick response rather than just dealing with a website. For the Texans 2011 opening game against the Colts I had old friends from Germany coming to town I hadn't seen for 20 years. I was able to talk to Stefanie, a Marketing Intern, and get some good seats in my price range. It was my friends' first NFL game and they said the atmosphere was like a World Cup soccer game! :)|

|Its hard to find good Texans tickets because they sell out every time! Its nice knowing that this site has tickets on the 50 yard line.|
