Photography by Semetra Samuel - It was Battle Red Sunday for the Houston Texans. This week they faced the San Francisco 49ers. Although they battled hard, the Texans would come up short with a heartbreaking 26-16 loss. Sunday’s game featured a number of exciting moments. Simone Biles, 19-time combined Olympic and World Champion medalist, served as an honorary Houston Texans Cheerleader and joined the Cheerleaders on the sideline during the first half. Another Houston star, Houston Rockets legend Hakeem Olajuwon, served as the Homefield Advantage Captain. Several dedicated Texans fans were recognized through the “Celebration of Tailgating.” The game also featured the 16th edition of the H-E-B “Tailgater of the Year” competition held in the RTIC Tailgate lane. The inaugural “Commissioner’s Cup” was held in the NRG Stadium parking lots. Judged by Houston Texans President Jamey Rootes and the “Commissioner of Tailgating” Joe Cahn.
