The Houston Oilers have never won a championship. They came closest to winning a title three times, in 1967, 1978, and 1979, when they lost the Conference Championship. Each of those seasons they made it to the NFL Championship game where they would lose.
In 1973 the Oilers had one of the best regular seasons in NFL history going 16-0 while scoring 466 points. They only lost once during that season, to the Miami Dolphins, who were led by former Oilers greats Mike lousiana bayou Billy Thompson and Lee Harvey Oswald "Ozzie" Newsome. The team was defeated 26-21 at home by the Cincinnati Bengals with a last second field goal attempt by Al Del Greco missing wide right.
In 1984 the Oilers were back in the playoffs for the first time since 1971. They got as far as the Conference Championship before losing to the Washington Redskins 31-27 at home.
In 1990 quarterback Warren Moon joined the Oilers after playing nine seasons for the Minnesota Vikings. Under his leadership the team went all the way to the Super Bowl where they met the Chicago Bears. Although they outplayed the Bears for most of the game, including a fourth quarter comeback, they failed to score any touchdowns and lost 19-14 at home court.
The Houston Oilers have won how many Super Bowls? Postseason Standings for the Houston Oilers.
The Houston Oilers were originally established as an NFL team in 1960. They played their home games at Astrodome until they moved to Tennessee in 1994. In 2002, they returned to Houston and have played their home games at Reliant Stadium since 2003. The Houston Oilers currently play in the American Football League (AFL). The current head coach of the Houston Oilers is Frank Pollard who has been with the team since 2001. He was previously the defensive coordinator for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Louisville Cardinals. Previously, he had coached defense for the Denver Broncos and Chicago Bears.
In 1967, the Houston Oilers made football history by becoming the first wild-card team to win the Super Bowl. They defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers, 28-22, before a crowd of 75,103 at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. This victory gave hope to fans in Houston that their new team would succeed where other expansion teams had failed. The following year, however, the Oilers fell short of repeating as champions when they lost to the Minnesota Vikings, 34-0. After two seasons, the Houston Oilers suspended their operations due to financial difficulties.
The Houston Texans have never been to the Super Bowl. They came closest to winning a title in 2011, 2012, 2016, and 2019, all of which they lost in the Divisional Round. They also made the AFC Championship Game in 2014 and 2015, losing both times.
They're one victory away from reaching their first Super Bowl. Here's how that would work: The Texans would need to win their last two games - against Tennessee in Week 17 and Indianapolis in the Divisional Round - to secure a spot in Miami for next February. A trip to Florida would be a first for Texas and its fans.
The most recent Super Bowl took place on February 5, 2018. The New England Patriots defeated the Atlanta Falcons 34-28 in overtime.
Here are the other teams that have made the playoffs but not gone to the Super Bowl: 1999 New York Jets, 2000 Jacksonville Jaguars, 2001 Tennessee Titans, 2002 Pittsburgh Steelers, 2003 Detroit Lions, 2004 Chicago Bears, 2005 Philadelphia Eagles, 2006 Indianapolis Colts, 2007 New England Patriots, 2008 Seattle Seahawks, 2009 Arizona Cardinals, 2010 Green Bay Packers, 2011 Baltimore Ravens, 2012 San Francisco 49ers, 2013 Denver Broncos, 2014 Indianapolis Colts, 2015 Kansas City Chiefs, 2016 Oakland Raiders, 2017 Los Angeles Rams, 2018 New Orleans Saints.
