The Houston Texans are a professional American football team based in Houston, Texas. The Texans compete in the National Football League as a member club of the American Football Conference South division and play their home games at NRG Stadium.
The Texans are the youngest franchise currently competing in the history of the National Football League after they began their expansion in 2002.
