The Houston Texans will be honoring Hurricane Harvey victims and those affected by the storm throughout the season.
On Sunday morning, ahead of the team’s season-opener at NRG Stadium against the Jacksonville Jaguars, James Palmer of NFL Media took to social media to show off a special helmet decal the Texans will be wearing for the duration of the 2017-18 campaign.
The decal has a simple message: “Houston Strong.”
Houston’s decal features the state of Texas with a heart over Houston and the surrounding areas which were severely impacted by catastrophic flooding flowing the Category 4 storm.

The NFL had to approve the helmet decal, but it was a no-brainer decision to allow Houston to wear the tribute as the football team tries to help the city heal.
Texans star J.J. Watt has already gone above and beyond to help victims by raising more than $30 million for Harvey relief, and now the entire team is joining in with this nice symbolic gesture.
Kickoff between Houston and Jacksonville is set for 1:00 p.m. ET.
