The 2019 Houston Texans season will be the franchise's 18th season in the National Football League and the sixth season under head coach Bill O'Brien. It will also mark the first full season without the ownership of Bob McNair, who died during the 2018 season. It will, however, be the first season of full ownership of both Janice McNair and D. Cal McNair. The Texans will attempt to improve over their 11–5 record from last year.

For the first time in franchise history, the team will play in London, playing against the Jacksonville Jaguars. On June 7, 2019, the Texans fired General Manager Brian Gaine after only one season.
