The Texans are up to some pregame shenanigans again.

This isn’t the first time the Texans have dressed up before playing the Patriots in a big prime time game.
In 2012, Houston entered Gillette Stadium wearing custom lettermen jackets before facing New England on “Monday Night Football.”
The Texans lost that game, 42-12, and lost again to the Patriots in the AFC Divisional Round that season.
Justin Forsett, who was a running back on the 2012 Texans, tweeted out that he hopes the pregame gimmick works out this time.
“I was part of a Texans team that wore custom letterman jackets vs the Patriots,” Forsett tweeted. “Long story short we got destroyed hope it’s different tonight lol.”
