No first-time playoff jitters for the Houston Texans.
Yes, it's that time again — you Houston Texans fans may have to search your memory banks for the last time your city hosted a playoff game (Hint: it was when the Houston Oilers lost in the wild card round to the Kansas City Chiefs at the old Astrodome on January 16, 1994).
