The Houston Texans hope that they can turn the tide this season because they haven’t had much to celebrate over the past two seasons.
Over that stretch, the team had a combined 8-25 record and their top talent has left for other NFL teams.
The Texans hope that their 2022 draftees Derek Stingley Jr., Kenyon Green, Jalen Pitre, and John Metchie III can help turn their fortunes around.
Aside from building their roster from the ground up, the team is hoping that a new helmet will motivate their players to perform better.

ESPN’s NFL insider Adam Schefter tweeted, “Texans unveiled their new Battle Red helmet today that will be worn Nov. 3 vs. the Eagles (but looks strong enough to wear more often than that).”
The helmet basically changes its main helmet’s dominating color from dark blue to red.
This new addition to their on-field wardrobe blends perfectly with their alternate red uniforms.
But while this helmet can help them look good on the field, will the Texans play well in 2022?
Not Much To Expect From The Texans
After their glory years during the 2010s, the Texans will continue to endure a postseason drought that will stretch to three seasons.
In their division alone, it’s difficult to put them in front of the Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans.
Even the Jacksonville Jaguars got way better than them in the offseason.
Their regular-season schedule is also unforgiving because they will face the Denver Broncos, Las Vegas Raiders, Kansas City Chiefs, and Los Angeles Chargers.
The Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins are also on their plate.
The Dallas Cowboys and Cleveland Browns could also give them a tough challenge.
Therefore, the Texans are staring at another double-digit losing season in 2022.
Still, the new helmets are a nice consolation for another paltry campaign.
