HTX Super Season 2013

The Houston Texans are the most talked about sports team in the city — and it's not even close. And one of the single most talked about things period. With young budding superstars like J.J. Watt and Arian Foster, much-debated quarterback Matt Schaub and big free agent addition Ed Reed, Houston is clearly in its Super Bowl window. In this exclusive series, CultureMap takes readers inside the city's most compelling daily drama and tells all the most important stories on the field and off.

From the first day of training camp through the run for the NFL's historic Super Bowl in New York, CultureMap will bring you inside the locker room, around the best tailgates and out to the hottest off-the-field events. Experienced sports writer Chris Baldwin will be on the road with the team and the country's most prominent society writer Shelby Hodge will at the team parties. And that's just part of the extensive coverage.
