Houston Texans 2022: News, Schedule, Roster, Score, Injury Report

The club got its start as an expansion team back in 2002 and they are the youngest franchise currently in the league. The Texans were chosen as replacements for the Houston Oilers who later moved out to Nashville and are currently called the Tennessee Titans. The Houston Texans are under the eye of Janice McNair who took over from her husband Bob McNair following his death in 2018.

The franchise's most successful season came in 2011 after having a rough go in their first active decade in the league. However, being relatively new entrants into the NFL means that they are the only franchise to have never appeared in a conference championship game as of the 2019 season. However, the Texans have won six AFC South championships spanning from 2011 to 2019.

The Texans were eliminated from playoff contention after a week 14 loss to the Chicago Bears and placed in the third position in the AFC South. Following their first 0-4 start since 2008, Head Coach Bill O’Brien was fired and replaced by Romeo Crennel who comes in as the interim Head Coach. The Texans rounded out their 2020 campaign with a 4-12 record.

Former owner Bob McNair announced three names for the franchise after Houston returned to the NFL for the 2002 season after the Oilers moved to Tennessee. The name Texans were selected after consideration with the other options being Apollos and Stallion.

There has been a tremendous sense of uniformity to the logo right from 2002 that sees the red, white, and blue state flag colors. However, their color scheme differs slightly from the state flag as the Houston Texans use a darker blue and a lighter red. The design was created by Verlander Design, a California studio that has come up with many emblems for other NFL teams.

2022 Charity

Texans owner Janice McNair founded the Robert and Janice McNair Educational Foundation with the aim to remove the financial barriers that were a roadblock for Rutherford County High School graduates from attending college.

Through the COVID-19 pandemic, McNair donated $1 million to the Houston rent relief fund to help apartment residents through the crisis. Additionally, McNair reportedly holds the record for the largest donation ever by an NFL owner that clocked in at $5million. The donation was directed towards a community-building project in Houston.
