The best move all along was to cancel the Houston Texans’ final preseason game.
So the NFL does have a heart.
The league along with the Houston Texans and Dallas Cowboys have canceled this Thursday’s preseason finale that was moved from NRG Stadium in Houston to AT&T Stadium in Arlington.
John McClain of the Houston Chronicle broke the news on Twitter and pointed out that the move was made in order to allow the players to get back home and take care of their families.
This was a very smart move because not only are the families of the Texans’ players affected by the storm, but also the coaches as well as employees of the team.
Of course this is unfortunate for the players on the Texans’ roster that were trying to make the team, but a disaster like this is much more of a priority than playing a football game at this point.
The Texans’ regular season opener is set to kick off in just 11 days in Houston. They still plan on hosting that game even though the flood waters still need to recede and there is plenty of clean up that needs to happen around the city.
It would be an uplifting event if the Texans are in fact able to host their opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars
