As you might have heard, there's another one coming up Saturday at 3:30 p.m. It's sold out, but if you're one of the lucky ticketholders, there's some info you need to know.
-- Security will be tightened up at the recommendation of the NFL. The Texans say you should plan on giving yourself an extra 15 minutes to get to your seats.
-- And they want you to get to those seats early. "The Texans strongly encourage all fans attending Saturday's game to be in their seats by at least 3 p.m. to participate in the pregame activities and be ready for kickoff," the team says.
-- Non-premium parking lots will open four hours before game time, but because it's a late-afternoon start, vehicles will not be allowed to line up along Main or Kirby or any other streets before that time. Stadium gates open at 2 p.m.
-- Your pre-game and halftime entertainment: Clay Walker.

"Before the game, Walker will break out a special playoff-inspired rendition of 'Football Time in Houston,' the unofficial Texans theme song," the team says. "At halftime, he will perform a collection of his greatest hits."
