After finishing a franchise-best 9-7 last year, the pressure is on the Texans and coach Gary Kubiak to earn their first ever playoff berth this season.
At the end of every practice during Organized Team Activities in May and June, the team huddled together and chanted "Super Bowl."
Houston suffered several excruciating defeats in 2009 and could have been 11-5 or even 12-4 had a few plays turned out differently. As the Texans head into training camp, questions remain at several key positions. They include: running back, tight end, corner back and the interior offensive line.
The uncertainty of wide receiver Andre Johnson's contract re-negotiation still lingers and the coaching staff needs to adjust to the additions of new offensive coordinator Rick Dennison and quarterback coach Greg Knapp.
The heat will be on during the steamy training camp days in the Houston bayou.
