Wow. I wonder what their bye weeks are. Apparently part of the roof is missing and there is heavy water damage.

Good thing for fantasy owners the only player worth a damn in that regard for either team is Andre Johnson.

Re: RAVENS/TEXANS GAME canceled due to reliant stadium damage

I live in San Antonio and the local sports was reporting last week that there was contact between Houston and San Antonio about the feasibility of Texan home games being played at the Alamodome in San Antonio. Do not know what direction it will take now though.

The Saints played a regular season game at the Alamodome after Katrina.

Re: RAVENS/TEXANS GAME canceled due to reliant stadium damage

my nephew emailed my niece a picture from down there last week.he's an apco repairman and he was down there repairing the power lines.the pic he sent was him wrestling with a dead alligator.apparently,they get really grumpy after a hurricane and the state police have had to shoot a few of them to save the apco workers. i'm really praying for all those folks down there.it looks like there is gonna be a lot of people that did'nt survive this,and that's really sad.

The Nov. 9 game will be held during the Ravens' bye week. The Texans' home game against the Cincinnati Bengals, originally scheduled for Nov. 9, will be moved to Oct. 26, which was the bye week for both of those teams.

This Sunday will now count as the bye for the Ravens and Texans. The Bengals' bye will be Nov. 9.

Clever Scheduling.

Both teams should be extra tired at the end of the year, with an effective week -2- bye week.

Does anybody know if the Ravens had already travelled down there?
