Texans to return home to Houston

Texans to return home to Houston”

DALLAS, TX- The Houston Texans and Dallas Cowboys were scheduled to play their final preseason game of 2017 on Thursday, Aug. 31.

In the time since, the Texans have opted for an opportunity to return home to their families and community. All proceeds from the game - ticket revenue, parking and concessions - were set to go toward Harvey relief. The Cowboys said ticket buyers can choose to either get a refund or have the money donated to Hurricane Harvey relief.

Several Texans' players who have been dealing with injuries are still stuck in Houston after staying behind when the team left last week for New Orleans.

"It's great that they can get home", said Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee.

"I think we have the best fans, anyway, so just imagine what NRG Stadium will be like for that first home game". Football's big in Texas, anyway, but when you put it in Houston and take into consideration such a catastrophic event, football becomes even bigger. The team has been practicing at the Cowboys' facility in Frisco, Texas, this week.

It seems like the National Football League is listening to J.J. Watt. "We also hope our actions will encourage others to do whatever they can to help their neighbors in need right now". This is so much bigger than football, and we're not trying to stand up here and act like we're anything more than we are. "So we need to make sure that we're thinking about these victims and the city of Houston before anything else". In response, Watt made a decision to help raise money for flooding victims. As of Wednesday afternoon, the fund had raised more than $5.8 million.

In addition, the NFL Foundation is matching the Texans' $1 million relief donation, Cowboys executive vice president Charlotte Jones Anderson announced earlier this week. Watt started a fundraiser at YouCaring.com/JJWatt on Sunday.
