The game was initially scheduled for NRG Stadium in Houston but was moved to Arlington due to unprecedented flooding in the Houston area caused by what was Hurricane Harvey.
In the time since, the Texans have opted for an opportunity to return home to their families and community.

Watt said he's been moved by watching everyone that has helped out in the crisis so far and is looking forward to pitching in. "So we need to make sure that we're thinking about these victims and the city of Houston before anything else".

"There's more important things than football right now", Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee said.

"Know that they're probably anxious to get home and see their families and just assess the situation", said Cowboys tight end Jason Witten.
O'Brien began his Monday post-practice press conference with a message to the city of Houston and Southeast Texas from Frisco, Texas. The Texans were on the road playing the New Orleans Saints on Saturday. "I think it's extremely important that we get home as quickly as we possibly can". Watt has raised more than $5 million, with a new goal of $6 million set. It's bigger than any of us. The Jets will donate $1 million to the American Red Cross and Tennessee Titans controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk donated $1 million to Watt's fundraising campaign.
