Texans to wear Battle Red helmets for Philadelphia Eagles game Nov. 3

The Houston Texans have added another element to their uniforms.

The team announced Tuesday they will be wearing a new Battle Red helmet with their Battle Red uniforms when they take on the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday Night Football on Nov. 3 at NRG Stadium.

“We’re thrilled to debut our new Battle Red Helmet as we continue to evolve as an organization,” Texans President Greg Grissom said. “We’ve consistently shown we’re not afraid to try new things, so we jumped at the chance to design an alternate helmet that will complement our uniforms, especially the Battle Red jersey. The start of Training Camp is on the horizon and we’re excited that our fans will have the opportunity to get a sneak peek of the new helmet in person soon.”

The Texans have worn Deep Steel Blue helmets with all of their uniforms since the team’s inception. With the NFL providing for teams to wear a second helmet in 2022 as part of their updated uniform policy, the Texans were able to add the Battle Red helmets.

Texans fans will actually get to see how the Battle Red helmets look in person when the team hosts their Back Together Saturday training camp practice July 30. The helmets will also be available for purchase at the Houston Texans Team Shop later this fall and online at starting July 25.

Additionally, there will be a contest wherein one fan will be chosen to win one of the first Battle Red helmets. The contest form can be found here, and the winner will be announced on SportsRadio 610’s “Payne & Pendergast” on Monday, July 25.

Battle Red Helmets will be available for fans to purchase this fall. For Houston Texans ticket information, visit or call 832-667-2002.

Fans can also purchase the team’s new limited-edition Battle Red T-shirts throughout training camp with proceeds benefiting the Houston Texans Foundation. More information can be found on the team’s 2022 Training Camp page.
