Catch a Houston Texans game in a luxury suite at NRG Stadium
There is no doubt about it; Houston is a football city. Since the city’s re-acquisition to the NFL as a new franchise in 2002 with the birth of the Houston Texans, this town has fallen in love with its team. Overcoming initial struggles, the Texans quickly developed a reputation as a hard-nosed defensive squad that strikes fear in the heart of anyone on the opposing sideline. The view from a Texans suite is truly spectacular, perfect for your corporate or private group.
Led by one of the most dominating players in the game today in JJ Watt, the Texans come to the stadium each week hungry in pursuit of their first Lombardi Trophy. Head coach Bill O’Brien brought his team to records with 9-7 the past two seasons, good enough to win the AFC South and make the playoffs. His goal for 2017 is to take things a step further and have his Texans make their first Super Bowl appearance.
Ever-searching for a franchise quarterback, last season kicked off with Brock Osweiler under center. Stolen away in free agency from the Super Bowl Champion Denver Broncos, Osweiler was poised to become the quarterback of the future in Houston. However, after one season in Houston plagued with inconsistent play, the Texans traded him to Cleveland for draft picks. It will be interesting to see who emerges as the starter in Houston. Tom Savage currently is sitting at number one on the depth chart, but the drafting of Deshaun Watson adds some intrigue. However, no matter who ends up under center, anyone should be excited to have the chance to play for the Texans and showcase their talents on the gridiron each week alongside great players like running back Lamar Miller and star receiver DeAndre Hopkins. Coach O’Brien hopes that management puts him in a position with the personnel around him to create a winning combination on offense.
Injuries sidelined defensive Star JJ Watt for the 2016 season as he underwent surgery to correct a herniated disc in his back. Stepping up in his place for the Texans defense were linebackers Brian Cushing, 2014 number one overall draft pick Jadeveon Clowney, cornerback Kareem Jackson, and former New England Patriot, nose tackle Vince Wilfork. While those players are expected to continue to play up to the same level, the return of Watt for the 2017 is sure to give a big boost to the Texans defense.
While still a young franchise, there have many players with supreme talents that have played for the Houston Texans. Among the best are JJ Watt, Andre Johnson, Arian Foster, and Brian Cushing. For more information about the Houston Texans click here.
