It may not seem like a big deal to some, but the Houston Texans are scheduled to have the roof open on Sunday night against the Indianapolis Colts.
Roof Forecast for Sunday: 56-70 degrees, no rain. If conditions remain the same, Texans will play with open roof. pic.twitter.com/Isc1tlDYIZ

As always, the final decision will be made by team executives two hours prior to kickoff. — Houston Texans (@HoustonTexans) November 1, 2013
This is the first time the roof has been open since Week 8 (October 30th) of the 2011 season against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Texans won that game 24 to 14 and was also a “Battle Red” day during that game. The Texans have played with the roof open 31 times since 2002, and this will only the 4th time since the start of the 2010 season.
Even Houston Texans defensive end Jared Crick had something to say about the news.
Heard we might pop the top sunday night. Bout time
