Texans Redecorating NRG Stadium In Preparations For Saints
It's game week, finally, for the NFL and more specifically the New Orleans Saints as they'll take on the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football. The Texans know that they're heading into a hostile environment when it comes to the Super Dome but what can you do to prepare for something like that?
Well, NRG stadium is an enclosed stadium you could just pump in a bunch of extra crowd noise? That's so overdone... The Texans may use that tactic but they took it a step further by literally turning NRG into the Super Dome! Take a look:
The voice of the Texans, Marc Vandermeer tweeted out this video on Monday that shows NRG Stadium actually transformed into what the Super Dome is going to look like when it comes to graphics and whatnot. This is an interesting idea by head coach Bill O'Brien, now if only the Texans could have paid to bus down a big group of actual Saints fans from the Crescent City to come and actually heckle the Texans while they practiced, that would have been really interesting.
The Saints are 2-2 against Houston during the regular season, where the home team has held serve in every meeting. This Monday will be the first prime-time game between these two foes; every other game has been the early kickoff on Sundays. For the Saints, they were perfect in prime-time games last season at 2-0, as for the Texans, they were perfect as well but one game better during prime-time games in 2018 with a 3-0 record.
