25. 2007, Texans get their first non-losing season, finish 8-8

Some teams would be frustrated by an 8-8 record. There are teams that are made fun of for 8-8 records (see Dallas Cowboys). Then there are teams that would die for an 8-8 season (see Cleveland Browns, Jacksonville Jaguars).

In 2007 though, 8-8 was a mark of improvement for the youngest franchise in the league as the Houston Texans ended with a non-losing record for the first time in franchise history.

The final game of the season came at Reliant Stadium in Houston where the Texans hosted the Jacksonville Jaguars. The eighth win was important to this team and they came out ready to win.

Receiver/return man André Davis tool two consecutive kick offs back for a touchdown to lead the team to a 42-28 victory at home.

Highlights from the season included defensive end Mario Williams setting a franchise record of 3.5 sacks in a December game against Denver and linebacker DeMeco Ryans making the pro bowl after another stellar season.

On October 7th, 2007 kicker Kris Brown had a remarkable day as well by nailing all five of his field goal tries, including three from more than 50 yards.
The place kicker hit from 54 yards out twice and then drove the game winner in from 57 yards out to hand the Miami Dolphins a 22-19 defeat.
