With the Texans selling out 154 straight games at NRG Stadium, the they currently have leverage to continue to jack up the prices.  Especially with the team winning the AFC South for a second straight season and almost reaching the AFC Championship.

The Texans ranked 13th in the league in average ticket prices this past season and are expected to be around the same average for 2017.

Houston’s eight regular season home games next season will be against the Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers, Kansas City Chiefs, and division rivals Jacksonville Jaguars, Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans.

Hopefully the fans will get their moneys worth with an even more successful season in 2017.
