| POSTPONEMENT OF RAVENS-TEXANS CONFIRMED |
Due to extensive damage at Reliant Stadium and the devastation in Houston and the surrounding areas caused by Hurricane Ike, the Houston Texans' home game against the Baltimore Ravens this weekend has been rescheduled for Sunday, Nov. 9 (1 p.m. ET) at Reliant Stadium.
Short notice made it logistically impossible to play this week at alternate sites. The change in dates also affects the Cincinnati Bengals' bye week schedule.
The regular-season schedule for the Houston Texans, Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals has been changed as a result of this weekend's postponement. The changes for these three teams are as follows:
The Houston Texans' bye has been changed from Sunday, Oct. 26 to Sunday, Sept. 14.
The Texans' next two games will take place as scheduled on the road -- Sunday, Sept. 21 against the Tennessee Titans at LP Field and Sunday, Sept. 28 against the Jacksonville Jaguars at Jacksonville Municipal Stadium.
The Baltimore Ravens' bye has been changed from Sunday, Nov. 9 to Sunday, Sept. 14.
The Cincinnati Bengals' bye has been changed from Sunday, Oct. 26 to Sunday, Nov. 9.
The Texans' home game against the Cincinnati Bengals originally scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 9 has been rescheduled for Sunday, Oct. 26 (4:05 p.m. ET) at Reliant Stadium.
Now what I have been reading is that Dallas, San Antonio, and New Orleans were all available to host this game on Monday night, but the Texans refused to play anywhere other than Reliant stadium.
It's all about money. The Texans are not willing to repay all those season ticket holders who won't be able to make a home game road trip. And they don't want some other team stealing their full game day profits.
Ohhh .... and you fantasy guys .... don't start any Ravens or Texans.
