There are a total of 32 NFL teams, and 4 of them are located in Texas. The Dallas Cowboys, Houston Texans, San Antonio Rattle snakes, and the Austin Armadillos.
While there are numerous reasons why an NFL team might relocate to another city, one of the most common is simply to find a market that is more receptive to football. This was certainly the case when theHouston Oilers relocated to Tennessee in 1997, as the team was unable to find the support it needed in Houston. In fact, there are a number of teams that have relocated in recent years, including the St. Louis Rams (now in Los Angeles), the San Diego Chargers (now in Los Angeles), and the Oakland Raiders (soon to be in Las Vegas).
Texas has long been considered one of the best markets for NFL teams, and it is no surprise that there are currently three teams located in the state. The Dallas Cowboys are probably the most popular team in Texas, and they have been playing their home games at AT&T Stadium since 2009. The Houston Texans joined the NFL as an expansion team in 2002, and they play their home games at NRG Stadium. The final team located in Texas is the San Antonio Talons, who are a member of the Arena Football League.
The Dallas Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys are a professional American football team based in the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex. The Cowboys compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member club of the league’s National Football Conference (NFC) East division. They are one of the eight current teams of the NFC East. The team is headquartered in Frisco, Texas, and plays its home games at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, which opened for the 2009 season. The stadium took the place of the partially demolished Texas Stadium, which served as the Cowboys’ home from 1971 through 2008.
The Cowboys joined the NFL as an expansion team in 1960. The team’s national following might best be represented by its NFL record of consecutive sell-outs. The Cowboys’ streak of 190 consecutive sold-out regular and post-season games began in 2002. The franchise has made it to eight Super Bowls, tied with Pittsburgh Steelers and Denver Broncos for second most Super Bowl appearances in NFL history, behind New England Patriots’ record eleven Super Bowl appearances. They have also recorded more victories than any other NFL franchise after winning their 500th game on December 16, 2012.
The Houston Texans
