State of the Texans:
2013 team captains are Matt Schaub, Andre Johnson, Brian Cushing, J.J. Watt & Shane Lechler.
— Houston Texans (@HoustonTexans) September 7, 2013
The Houston Texans have named their 2013 captains for the season. The team has chosen Matt Schaub, Andre Johnson, Brian Cushing, J.J. Watt and Shane Lechler.
The only changes from the start of the 2012 season is that Tim Dobbins (Special Teams) and Antonio Smith (Defense) were captains to start the season.
There should be no surprise with the offensive and defensive captains, but Lechler being named captain in his fist year speaks volumes of what the team thinks of the veteran punter.

Which AFC opponent poses the biggest threat to the Patriots in their quest to return to the Super Bowl?
