Houston Texans: Special Teams

K: Kris Brown — After his first three seasons were played in Pittsburgh, Kris Brown made himself a Texans legend from 2002-09 playing eight of his 12 seasons in Houston. Brown played 128 games with the Texans, and he made 77.1-percent of his field goal attempts (172-223) and 99.2 percent of his extra point attempts (251-253).

P: Shane Lechler — Being a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame All-2000s and All-2010s teams, Shane Lechler is one of the easier selections to this Texans dream team starting lineup for the special teams. He is also a member of the NFL 100 All-Time Team, so again, he’s on a level at his position that very few are.

Though he made his name in the NFL with the Raiders, Lechler played his final five seasons with the Texans Where in 80 games the punter — maybe the greatest punter ever — averaged 47.6 yards per punt while in Houston and had only one punt blocked (five in his career) with the team in 430 punts.

LS: Jon Weeks —Weeks has been with the Texans since the 2010 season, playing as the long snapper on the special teams. Weeks is one of the very best at his positions he’s played in 1,235 snaps in his career, even earning a Pro Bowl selection in 2015.

KR: André Davis — In kick returning, André Davis played 40 games with the team and is the career leader in kick return yards with 2,743 with three touchdowns on 108 returns. His longest return was 104 yards, and he averaged 25.4 yards per return.

PR: Jacoby Jones — Jones is the all-time Texans leader in punt return yards with 1,820, and he also leads the Texans all-time punt return leader with three touchdowns. Jones had 179 returns in his Texans career, averaging 10.l2 yards per punt return.

Houston Texans: Head Coach

HC: Bill O’Brien — Though not all decisions made by Bill O’Brien have been favorable in his time with the franchise, and the results aren’t what many want, but he’s still the right coach for this all-time team. O’Brien has the best winning percentage with the Texans, as from the 2014-19 seasons his teams have a .542 winning percentage with a 52-44 overall record.
