Transcript THE TEXANS REMARKABLE, RECORD SETTING FIRST SEASON CAUGHT IN TIME v»« A charged atmosphere became even more frenzied when the Texans scored a touchdown in their very first possession against the cross-state rivals and bowl winners the Dallas Cowboys.

When the doors to Reliant Stadium opened and the sold-out crowd looked at the field below, there was a great roar as the first NFL kickoff in Houston since the Oilers left for Tennessee greeted their eyes and landed in the Texans hands. While the Texans did not make the playoffs they had several impressive and important wins, reviving two old rivalries from the Oilers era in this new age of Houston football. After trouncing the Cowboys 19-10 on opening night, the Texans also humiliated the hated Pittsburgh Steelers 24-6 - despite logging an NFL history low 47 yards total offense in a win. The Texans also claimed a victory against the Jacksonville Jaguars in a 21-19 nailbiter for their first ever road victory and in a 16-14 upset against the New York Jets. For their performance over the course of the season, CB Aaron Glenn and DE Gary Walker were selected for the Pro Bowl, tying the 1961 Vikings for most representatives from an expansion team and the first individuals to represent an expansion team in the pro bowl since the Saints in 1967 (the last year the Pro Bowl selected at least one player from every team). Rookie QB and first overall draft pick David Carr had an impressive first season and showed great promise in 2002. Carr took every snap of the season and completed 233 of 444 passes for 52.2 percent, throwing for 2,592 yards with nine TDs despite an expansion line that allowed 76 sacks over the season. Unfortunately, highly publicized acquisition and former pro bowler Tony Bosel 1 i was unable to take the field in the Texans inaugural season, sitting out with a shoulder injury for its entire duration. -Richard Whitrock The Texans won their first game in the NFL, which had not happened for an expansion team in the last 40 years, and marked their place in NFL history.
