Last season was a year to forget for the Houston Texans, to say the least. After a 12-4 season in 2012, the Texans finished 2013 with a dismal 2-14 record, losing their last 14 games.
The Texans fired head coach Gary Kubiak late in the 2013 season and finished the year with interim coach Wade Phillips. Texans owner Robert McNair hired former Penn State head coach Bill O’Brien in January to lead them into the 2014 season and beyond.
Houston suffered both on offense and defense last year. The team averaged 17.2 points per game (31st the NFL) and ranked 24th on defense, allowing 26.8 points per game.
