The Texans worked against both the Saints at home and the 49ers on the road in 2016. During filming of HBO’s Hard Knocks in 2015, the team traveled to Richmond, Virginia to scrimmage against Washington at camp. In O’Brien’s first season as head coach, Houston hosted the Atlanta Falcons for joint practices in 2014.
