The Houston Texans are encouraging fans to show up in red at NRG Stadium for Battle Red Day against the Indianapolis Colts.

Houston takes on their AFC South rivals Sunday at 12:00 p.m. Central Time in a rematch of a Week 6 beating at the hands Indianapolis, 31-3.

The first 10,000 fans who arrive at the stadium will get a Battle Red Day t-shirt. Starting at 9:30 a.m., fans can visit the BULLevard to partake in two attractions exclusive to Battle Red Day: the Jameson Ultimate Tailgate located directly south of the Astrodome (ages 21 and up), and the Coca-Cola Holiday Caravan, where fans can take a photo with Santa Claus. Fans will be welcomed at gates by Percussion One.

Delphi Borich, the star of Theater Under the Stars’ production of “The Little Mermaid,” will sing the national anthem. The Battle Red Ladies joined by Brazoswood Air Force JROTC will be the U.S. flag holders. Presenting the colors will be the United States Marine Corps.

Astros pitcher Lance McCullers will be the Homefield Advantage Captain. Mattress Firm chief retail officer Jody Putnam will serve as the virtual coin toss captain.

The Ocean of Soul Marching Band from Texas Southern University will perform on-field at halftime.

Sunday will also be “My Cause, My Cleats” across the NFL, where players are given the opportunity to choose a cause that is important to them and represent it on game day. Over 30 Texans will participate in this year’s campaign, including quarterback Tyrod Taylor, who visited the Boys & Girls Club — Stafford Club earlier this week. Taylor’s cleats will represent the Tyrod Taylor Foundation, which helps support youth programs including the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Houston.
