The Houston Texans, who entered the league in 2002, have now played 34 regular-season games without notching back-to-back wins. Excluding the Texans, the NFL added nine expansion franchise since 1960, and none had taken more than 28 contests to put together a two-game winning streak. Here is a list of how long it took each of the expansion clubs to register its first consecutive victories:

Team -- Expansion year -- Games
Cleveland -- 1999 -- 19
Jacksonville -- 1995 -- 6
Carolina -- 1995 -- 7
Seattle -- 1976 -- 28
Tampa Bay -- 1976 -- 28
New Orleans -- 1967 -- 20
Atlanta -- 1966 -- 13
Minnesota -- 1961 -- 21
Dallas -- 1960 -- 14
