How NRG Stadium looks different than normal for Patriots vs. Texans originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

NRG Stadium in Houston has been hosting Texans games since 2002, and on Sunday the venue's roof was fully open for the first time in six years.

Here's a look at the retractable roof fully open before the Texans played the New England Patriots for a Week 11 matchup.

The last Texans game to be played in Houston with the roof open was on Nov. 30, 2014 versus the Tennessee Titans.

The Patriots have played some memorable games at NRG Stadium, including victories over the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl XXXVIII and the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI.

New England entered Sunday's game with a 10-2 record against Houston since the franchise's first season in 2002, and both of those losses came at NRG Stadium.
