The first Texans playoff game in history may be played indoors despite beautiful weather in Houston.
The Texans told PFT Saturday morning that a decision will be made on whether the Reliant Stadium roof is open two hours before kickoff. Weather is only “one factor that plays a part” in the decision.
It’s partly cloudy with weather in the mid-70’s in Houston on Saturday. There is no chance of rain. But we suspect the Texans will keep the roof closed because it creates a bigger homefield advantage.
The roof was also closed when they faced the Falcons, and many players said it was the loudest they have ever heard a home crowd at a Texans game.
We’re sure fans won’t mind the roof being closed if it helps them win their first play off game.
UPDATE 3:45 p.m. ET: The roof will be closed.
