Texans haven’t decided whether to close roof yet


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.
