The Texans can thank their owner and founder, energy executive Bob McNair for that.
McNair has donated $215,200 of his estimated $1.4-billion net worth to political causes, almost exclusively to republicans.
That pushes the Texans to a team total of $293,100 in political contributions from its players, executives and coaches.
Far ahead of the number two team the San Diego Chargers who gave $171,500.
The majority of that money came from Chargers’ owners, the Spanos family.
The New York Jets ranked third at $147,850 in contributions.
Most of this came from Jets owner Woody Johnson, heir to the Johnson & Johnson fortune.
Like McNair, almost all of Johnson’s generosity benefited republicans.
If only the Texans could 'contribute' a bit more on the field we could have a winning season and rank first in something other than politics.
