The Texans took the field for the
first time in the 2002 NFL season, and wasted little time making
their mark. Houston downed their cross-state rival Dallas
Cowboys, 19-10, in the franchise's regular season opener at
Reliant Stadium. In doing so, it marked the first time
that an expansion team won its opening game since the Minnesota
Vikings' stunning upset of the Chicago Bears in 1961.
