Texans-Cowboys preseason game canceled amid Houston flooding

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo wrote on Twitter that the game was cancelled so Texans players could return home to Houston to help out and be with their families.

The Dallas Cowboys have opened their doors to the Houston Texans, and are letting them dictate how they want to handle Thursday's preseason finale.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien read a statement after practice at the Cowboys' training facility, announcing owner Bob McNair's $1 million donation to relief efforts and the team's decision to dedicate the season to the city.

After a week that saw the team fly from Houston to New Orleans, then on to the Dallas-Fort Worth area, the Texans bussed back to Houston on Wednesday afternoon.

Fans who have already purchased tickets may get them refunded.

When: Solar eclipse on August 21, 2017
Even the President took a few minutes to don a pair of eclipse glasses. "It's a once in a life time experience", Burritt said. Unless it was rainy and cloudy, there was a good chance you'd see at least a partial eclipse somewhere in the country.

The Saints went 3-13 in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans on August 29, 2005, but the Saints were unable to play any regular-season games at home after the storm damaged the Superdome.

"I've been increasingly impressed with them as we've dealt with all the things we've had to deal with over the last couple of days. We're proud of the resiliency they've shown and the resilience they will show".

According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, more than 40,000 tickets had been sold for Thursday night's game in the Dallas area. "What's most important to me and everyone in Jacksonville isn't where we'll play the Texans on Week One, but that the City of Houston and its people recover quickly, safely and successfully". "I can't say thank you enough to the Titans organization and everyone over there".

It seems like the National Football League is listening to J.J. Watt.

"I think it's the right decision", Watt said of the decision to cancel the game. "Houston's a great city". It's a home game at NRG Stadium. He also raised the goal of the fundraiser to $10 million. He set up a YouCaring.com campaign with an initial goal of $100,000 on Sunday, and it's grown substantially since.
