The 1952 Dallas Texans season was the team's only season in the league while in Dallas. They lost their first nine games and finished 1-11,[1] the worst record in the 12-team league.

After its seventh game, the franchise was returned to the NFL on November 14.[2][3] The Texans' home game against the Chicago Bears was moved to Thanksgiving and to the Rubber Bowl in Akron, Ohio, and was their only victory.[4] The final home game with the Lions was moved to Briggs Stadium in Detroit.[5]

A new NFL franchise emerged in 1953 as the Colts in Baltimore, Maryland. Professional football did not return to the "Big D" until 1960, with the births of the Cowboys and the AFL's Texans.
