After months—no, scratch that, an eternity—of waiting, football is back. The Houston Texans open up the season September 9th on Monday Night Football; they are matched up against the San Diego Chargers.
Last season, the Texans appeared to be by far one of the best teams in the league for a very long time. An incredible stretch of football led them to an 11-1 record, and it seemed like nothing would prevent the Texans from reaching the Super Bowl.
Then everything went wrong.
The New England Patriots embarrassed the Texans on national television in Week 12, beginning the Texans' miserable late-season collapse. The Texans dropped two of the remaining four games, and the Super Bowl that once was so very tangible became a fleeting mirage.
This season, the Texans will be presented with a second chance. They improved during the offseason; they are now even more equipped to make a Super Bowl run.
Many burning questions face this group of championship-hungry teammates as they prepare for the most important season in franchise history.
Read on and find out just what those questions are.
