The Houston Texans are one of the newer National Football League (NFL) teams, having been created in 2002 when the league expanded to 32 teams. Houston previously had an NFL team, but the Oilers moved to Nashville, Tennessee and became the Tennessee Titans. In 2011, only nine seasons after their creation, the Texans won the AFC South for the first time by posting a 10-6-0 record. They progressed to the AFC Championship where they fell at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens.
The following season saw more success with the Texans sitting pretty with an 11-1-0 going into Week 14. However, they lost three of their last four games to end 12-4, a mark still good enough to win back-to-back AFC South titles.
Despite this success, 2013 was a horrendous year for the Texans who went on a 14-game losing streak, ending the season 2-14 for their joint worst season. Head coach Gary Kubiak lost his job as a result, and the rebuilding process began.
And rebuild they did with Bill O’Brien at the helm. O’Brien guided his team to a 9-7 record, narrowly missing the playoffs, before finishing 9-7 again in 2015 to top the AFC South for the third time in their history.

How To Make Money Betting On Houston Texans
The Texans are a consistently strong team but aren’t yet thought of in the elite category. Too many question marks remain on the offensive side of the ball. They are definitely AFC division contenders, but beyond that Houston has little Super Bowl clout.
One area that the Texans do not have to worry about is defense where J.J. Watt continues to put in impressive performances each season.
Led by Watt, expect the Texans to be strong on defense each season. They pride themselves on making it difficult for opponents to rack up yards, and points.
