A 2-14 season a year ago might have been painful to watch, but it apparently hasn’t hurt the Houston Texans’ pocketbook. At all.

For the second straight year, owner Robert McNair’s team ranked fifth among NFL clubs on Forbes annual list of the 50 most valuable sports franchises.

The team was valued at $1.45 billion, same as it was last August. That’s something of a success, considering last year’s on-field debacle, the impending rebuild, a first-year head coach, no franchise quarterback and the only franchise anything being in the midst of a standoff with management.

Still, Houston is quietly the nation’s sixth-largest market, enjoys a booming economy and is free from state tax — all conducive to a pretty price tag.

The Dallas Cowboys (5th overall), New England Patriots (8th), Washington Redskins (9th) and New York Giants (10th) rounded out the top five.

Houston ranked 12th overall.
