The Houston Texans were formed as an expansion franchise in 2002. Like most expansion franchises, the early years were tough for the Texans and they had to wait till 2011 to reach their first playoffs. However, since then, the team has managed to bag three division titles, with their most recent title coming last season.
The Texans started the 2015 season very slowly and stuttered to a 3-5 record by the time they reached their bye week. The five losses they suffered during this time included blowing big leads against the Atlanta Falcons and the Miami Dolphins.
However, the team recuperated and surged towards a 6-2 record following the bye week and finished the season with an overall record of 9-7. The Texans won their third AFC South title and secured a berth in the postseason for the first time since 2012.
The Texans faced off against the Kansas City Chiefs in the wildcard round of the playoffs. The game turned out to be a disaster for the Houston side and they were shut out 30-0 by the Chiefs. It was more galling since the Texans were playing at home, the NRG Stadium.
