Texans-Cowboys game could move due to Hurricane Harvey

By: Jeff Risdon | 2 hours ago

As Hurricane Harvey looms large off the Texas coastline, next Thursday’s matchup between the Houston Texans and Dallas Cowboys could move from NRG Stadium in Houston to AT&T Stadium in Arlington.
Per the Dallas News, the two teams have talked about possibly moving the game north and away from the anticipated impact zone.

Harvey is expected to dump up to 3 feet of rain on the greater Houston area, where flooding is not uncommon with significantly smaller bouts of rainfall. If the region needs to focus the resources on recovery, the game could move to the home of the Cowboys.
The Texans are currently in New Orleans, which could also experience some of the brunt of Harvey, now a Category 3 hurricane bearing down on the Corpus Christi area and expected to turn northeast as it makes landfall late Friday or early Saturday.
