That, plus all the other themes for the Houston Texans' regular season home games.

Mr. Dunsmore had a link about this in yesterday's Newswire, but I wanted to get a separate post up about it for content search reasons. Specifically, because "When is Battle Red Day this year?" is a question that comes up more than you'd think, and a website hamfistedly referencing such an occasion should probably have that answer at the ready. Thus, I give you the 2016 home game themes for your Houston Texans.

While it would seem Battle Red Day would seamlessly lend itself to a game on Christmas Eve, the Texans always have their Fan Appreciation Day on the final home game of the season, so I understand why the Bengals won't be the recipients of a reddening. Plus, Battle Red Day against Cincinnati could be misconstrued as honoring Andy Dalton's hair which, as a fellow Katian, I would be cool with, but I recognize that others might not be.

Which of these games are you planning/hoping to attend?
