The Houston Texans may have captured their long sought after Super Bowl ring by the time 2017 roles around, but if not, there’s a chance we could see them play at home in Houston if luck comes their way.
After weeks of back and forth argument between Miami fans, Houston won its Super Bowl LI bid on Tuesday, and will play host the year after San Francisco shows off its new eight figure stadium stadium. A Super Bowl in the Bay Area will be a sight in its own right, but Houston’s successful bid sent a harsh message to Miami – one that will require a lot of moolah and a flashy new arena if they ever want to see the big game in tunatown again.
Back in Texas, 2017 will mark Houston’s third hosting duties, having held Super Bowl XXXVIII between the Carolina Panthers and New England Patriots in 2004.
By 2017, DeAndre Hopkins should be a 1,000-yard receiver, Arian Foster will be 31, J.J. Watt will probably have sacked every quarterback in the league, and who knows where Matt Schaub might be.
It definitely could be Battle Red’s year, so better start saving.
