On June 1, the Texans were 100 days away from the start of their 2019 campaign.

Houston kicks off the season with a road contest at the New Orleans Saints, and the two squads will duke it out on September 9 in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

HoustonTexans.com is re-living, one day at a time for 100 straight days, some top moments in franchise history.

It's not necessarily a big play. Often times it will be, but we'll also focus on off-the-field moments and times that occurred before a Texans team ever suited up.

This is the 100th year of NFL football, and 18th season for the Texans. But keep this in mind, years before Houston beat the Dallas Cowboys in the organization's first regular season game in 2002, team chairman/founder/CEO Bob McNair worked to get an NFL franchise. There's quite a bit to cover over 100 days, and we hope you'll enjoy looking back at some interesting moments in Texans history.
