Texans Kicker Looking for New Start in Home State

Haunting memories of last season at Heinz Field playing for the Pittsburgh Steelers are Kris Brown's motivation for creating a new personal story line this season. Brown missed an NFL high 14 field goals last season, mostly because of his problems in the Steelers' new stadium, where he was 14 - 24 on field goals. He was 16 - 20 on the road.

That's why the Texans are hoping a new venue at Reliant Stadium in Houston will give Brown a fresh look on his profession. Reliant Stadium, with ribbon cutting scheduled for Thursday, is the only NFL stadium with a retractable roof. It has natural turf, and Brown can't wait to get started.
