Hurricane Harvey has devastated the Houston area. As a result, the NFL’s fourth preseason game, which was scheduled between the Dallas Cowboys and the Houston Texans, it was originally scheduled to be in Houston at NRG Stadium.

However, due to the storm, the fourth preseason game, was then moved to AT&T Stadium, about 270 miles away, in Arlington, Texas. Earlier this week, there was speculation that all the tickets would be sold for $25 each and $25 for parking with all the proceeds going to Hurricane Harvey aid.

The NFL made the decision on Wednesday morning to cancel the game. The reason for this decision is to allow the Texans to return to their families.

Parts of Houston are beginning to clean up after days of heavy rain. This is definitely a surprising decision, as we pointed out, it looked like the game was going to be played as scheduled, except at AT&T Stadium.

The Texans had been practicing with the Cowboys all week. It looks like, with this cancelation, that Houston will be returning to the field for the first-time since their Week 3 game during the season-opener next weekend.

The NFL stated, when the game was still on, that they would air the game on the NFL Network in an attempt to help in the hurricane aid efforts.

The league will definitely have to explain — if they even do at all — as to why they waited until Wednesday to make the call and cancel the game a day before the contest.
