The Houston Texans and Dallas Cowboys are doing the right thing.

Many people within as well as outside the NFL have made it clear that they don’t believe the Houston Texans and Dallas Cowboys should even bother to playing this Thursday’s preseason game with everything that’s been going on in Houston with the hurricane and flood relief efforts.

The NFL, Texans and Cowboys are doing the right thing as they announced on Tuesday that all of the money made during Thursday’s game will be donated to help the Houston area.

Even though this is the fourth and final preseason, which means starters on both teams won’t play, it’s nice that all of the tickets are only $25. This will allow a lot of people that can’t typically afford to attend an NFL game to go and watch the Texans and Cowboys play. Not to mention, there money will be going to a great cause.

I’m sure it will be difficult for many players to play at a high level during this week’s game, but many of them are fighting for roster spots with the preseason now ending.

The Texans as well as every other NFL team will be cutting a total of 37 players this weekend in order to cut their rosters down from 90 players to 53.

Now of course there are a handful of players that will get released and then signed onto a practice squad.  But they still have to prove themselves during this week’s game.
