The Houston Texans are the youngest professional football team from Houston, Texas. They compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member  of the American Football Conference (AFC) - Southern Division. The team was founded in 1999 and began play in 2002,  and they call NRG Stadium home. 

While the Texans have never appeared in  a Super Bowl, they have made the playoffs six times, most recently in 2019. Their best season came in 2012 when they won their second straight AFC South title. The team had an overall 12-4 until they lost against the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Divisional Round.

The Texans have had several notable players, including quarterback Matt Schaub, running back Arian Foster, wide receiver Andre Johnson, and defensive end J.J. Watt, who won three Defensive Player of the Year awards in four years. Since January 2023, the team has been led by head coach DeMeco Ryans, the team’s third head coach hired in the past three offseasons.

Houston Texans 2022: The Bad Streak Continues

It’s been a rough few years for the Houston Texans: for two consecutive seasons, the Texans have been the first team to be eliminated from playoff contention. In the 2022 season, the Texans fell on Week 13 with a 3–13–1 record under the leadership of head coach Lovie Smith. 

In Week 1, the Texans recorded the franchise’s first-ever tie against the Indianapolis Colts. It was  the team’s worst start since 2005, and the Texans didn’t win two consecutive games all season, including a nine-game losing streak that further cemented the team’s draft stock. Not only did they fail to improve upon their 2021 record (4-13), but they also had their worst losing streak since 2013. The Texans were winless at NRG Stadium, going 0–7–1.

The Texans fired head coach Lovie Smith, who only led the team during the 2022 season. He’s the latest head coach after a series of short-lived ones, after Romeo Crennel (who was interim head coach after Bill O'Brien's departure) and David Culley.

The dismal 2022 campaign cemented their draft stock, and in combination with a refreshed coaching staff, promising young players, and the second-overall draft pick, fans in Houston are cautiously optimistic. 

The Road to 2023

On January 31, the Texans hired DeMeco Ryans, who played for Houston between 2006 and 2011, to be the team’s head coach. Ryans arrives fresh off a stint as defense coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers. The Texans didn’t pick any players outside the 2023 draft but made a few trades to move up and acquire more picks.

Hopes for a Better 2023 - Texans Season Outlook 

The Houston Texans are coming off a disappointing 3-13-1 season in 2022, but there A New Coach and a New Hope

The Texans have a new head coach in DeMeco Ryans, a rising star in the NFL coaching ranks. Ryans arrives in  Houston after a stint as linebackers coach and defensive coordinator with the San Francisco 49ers.

During his playing career, he was a linebacker for the Texans between 2006 and 2011 and then for the Philadelphia Eagles between 2012 and 2015. As a coach, he is known for his aggressive, attacking defense, and he will be looking to turn around the Texans struggling defense in 2023.

The Texans 2023 Roster

The Texans feature a young, talented roster ready to break out. Quarterback Davis Mills is entering his third season and showed flashes of potential in 2022. One of the season's storylines will almost certainly be the training camp and preseason development of second-overall pick C.J. Stroud and if he will be installed as the starting signal-caller. 

Well, Stroud showed up and showed out in the late summer action and was installed as the starting quarterback for their week one contest on the road against the Ravens. If that weren’t enough – the team also voted Stroud as one of the team’s four captains – a unique honor for a rookie signal-caller.

Second-year running back Dameon Pierce is expected to make an impact building off his 939 rushing years in 2022. 

The Texans have a favorable schedule in 2023 by residing in one of the league’s weakest divisions. 

Here are some specific things fans can look forward to in the 2023 season:

  • The development of Davis Mills. Mills showed flashes of potential in his rookie season. He began the 2022 season as the Texans starter and completed 23 of 37 passes for 240 yards and two touchdowns on his first appearance against the Indianapolis Colts; the game ended in a 20-20 tie, the first in the franchise's history.
  • The arrival of C.J. Stroud. While Mills has been the incumbent starter for two seasons and 26 games, the team could not pass on taking an heir-apparent in Stroud. Now, the team has decided Stroud will be the man – he was named the week one starter and the quest for one of four league rookie QBs to start the opening weekend. A lot rides on the first few weeks of the 2023 campaign – and the potential future face of the franchise. 
  • The breakout of Dameon Pierce. While his 2022 ended with  a week 14 injury, he finished with 939 rushing yards and four touchdowns, 30 catches for 165 yards, and one touchdown.
  • The defense under DeMeco Ryans. Ryans is a defensive guru, and he should be able to turn around the Texans struggling defense in 2023.
