FanSided 250: How Houston Texans fans can move up the rankings next year
The Houston Texans fan base made the FanSided 250 for 2019, as they are now known as one of the very best fan bases in all of sports and entertainment.
Houston Texans fans have earned a spot on the FanSided 250 as they are ranked 177th overall in the fan rankings of sports and entertainment, making them one of the hottest fandoms around.
In the overall voting of the Texans via the FanSided 250, the fan vote score was 54.5, followed by a search score of 73.6. It also says the Texans have 5.3m social follows. On the Texans FanSided 250 page, it also states the following about the fans of the Texans:
"“The Texans have had plenty of famous fans over the years including George Bush Sr., but Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles being behind the red and blue must make fellow fans proud.”"
Houston fans were one of 23 NFL teams to be one of the hottest fandoms to make the FanSided 250, and just two of four NFL teams from the AFC South made the list, with the Indianapolis Colts fans being ranked 174th overall and 18th in the NFL.
Here is the deal for the Texans: for the fans of the Texans to move up from 177th on the list, the team itself needs to take the next step in making the franchise more well-known from not just a local and statewide view, but nationally and internationally.

For the Texans to do that, they must start being a more consistent team, plus they need to not only make the playoffs and win division titles, but start gaining playoff wins once they make the “second season.”
Take, for instance, this past Sunday. The Texans lost to the Denver Broncos, where many were picking the Texans to win just one week after the Texans defeated the mighty New England Patriots. The Texans didn’t win that game, and the result is a loss of momentum they gained from the win over New England.
The Texans have a star in quarterback Deshaun Watson, and they have a star and past NFL Defensive Player of the Year in J.J. Watt on the roster, so that is a big start to making this team higher on the list next season.
There is also the fact playing overseas this season in London, England helped make a big step on the international level, so playing in more of those type of games can only help the footprint of the Texans on an international level for years to come.
Should the Texans have been higher? Yes, but this is a good spot for the Texans. They can only move up from 177th overall if they can just win more in the big moments, and then respond with more consistent play following their successful moments.
