Battle Red is back in a big way for the Houston Texans!

The Houston Texans announced the new Battle Red helmet, which has Texans fans ecstatic and eager.

The Battle Red uniform has been a favorite for Texans fans since the first time they’ve worn them. Most fans would love to see the Battle Red uniform be worn more often, but when we get to see it, it’s always a treat for fans.

Houston announced they will wear their new Battle Red helmet along with the classic Battle Red Jersey in Week 9 of the 2022 NFL season against the Philadelphia Eagles on Battle Red Day, Nov. 3 at NRG Stadium, which will be a Thursday Night Game.

Houston is 11-12 on Battle Red Day, as last season they lost their 12th game in the Battle Red uniform against the rival Indianapolis Colts in Week 13 in 2021.

Indianapolis obliterated the Texans 31-0, but former Texans quarterback Tyrod Taylor played most of the game, while current quarterback Davis Mills came in during the fourth quarter, but it was too late to earn a win.

Memorable games for Texans wearing Battle Red uniforms

Houston has some memorable games, such as the destruction of the Baltimore Ravens, where they won 43-13 in 2012. We can’t forget how almost every Battle Red day when Texans legend Andre Johnson seemed to step up big as he always has.

One instance in 2013 against the Colts, Johnson had one of his best performances in Week 9. Johnson and then quarterback Case Keenum connected for nine receptions for 229 yards, and three touchdowns, but the Texans ended up losing the game. Houston’s defense didn’t hold back Colts quarterback Andrew Luck and Houston ended up losing the AFC South game, 27-24.

Regardless of the outcome, many Houston fans won’t forget the unbelievable performance of Johnson. Dre is in debate as the greatest Texan of all time, but we know he is one of the best wide receivers of all time and will end up in the Hall of Fame one day.

Back to 2022 and what the current Houston team can achieve.

Houston fans have a lot to look forward to this season. Mills has an entire offseason as the starter, and the new rookies will be more comfortable come November, so there is hope the Texans could look to tie up their record on Battle Red day.
