Houston, Texas (PRWEB) May 22, 2013
With the NFL Draft in the rear view mirror, football season is approaching rapidly, and few teams can be more eager to start the 2013 campaign than the Houston Texans. The Texans, coming off their finest season in franchise history, remain one of the premier teams in the league, and look to capture their third straight AFC South title.
Despite a disappointing loss to the New England Patriots in the divisional round of the playoffs, the Texans appear poised to take the next step forward.
As the level of play has risen on the field in Houston, the level of interest among fans has grown as well, who now expect the team to be highly competitive on a yearly basis.
“Teams are always more popular among their local fans when they are playing well,” said Karissa Hulsey, marketing manager for My Ticket In. “Houston has been one of the better teams in the league the past couple seasons, and people have definitely taken notice of that.”
However, the Texans are never going to have problems getting fans to fill the seats at Reliant Stadium. Two new massive video screens will make the experience at the stadium even better for the crowd.
“Texas is ruled by its football teams, so it’s no surprise that Texans tickets are always in such high demand,” Hulsey said. “The fact that they are doing well now makes it that much more difficult to find Houston Texans tickets at the last minute.”
Houston posted an impressive 12-4 record in 2012, and defeated the Cincinnati Bengals in the first round of the playoffs for the second year in a row. Just as impressively, second year DE J.J. Watt won the AP Defensive Player of the Year award, submitting perhaps the best season ever by a defensive lineman.
The Texans biggest off season acquisition this year was former Ravens safety Ed Reed. Reed is a nine-time Pro Bowler and sure-fire future Hall of Famer, and will bring some much needed veteran leadership to the Houston secondary. Reed will help the Texans’ defense stay among the league’s best. Though Watt is unlikely to match the gaudy numbers that he put up in 2012, the attention he receives from opposing offensive lines should allow the rest of the defensive front to make even more plays. Second-year pro Whitney Mercilus should improve greatly as a pass-rusher, while a healthy Jonathan Joseph will help the secondary as much as the addition of Reed.
The offense should remain one of the NFL’s best and most balanced. RB Arian Foster has clearly established himself as one the most effective running backs in the entire league. He gets a lot of help from the offensive line, led by Pro Bowlers Duane Brown, Chris Myers and Wade Smith. Andre Johnson stayed healthy in 2012 and put up a career-high 1,598 yards, showing he still has a few good years left. Houston also drafted Clemson WR DeAndre Hopkins in the first round, giving QB Matt Schaub another explosive target in the passing game.
The Texans are expected to make a lot of noise in 2013, and they hope the fans are making noise with them every step of the way.
