Originally, this match was planned to be played in Houston but after heavy rain that Hurricane Harvey brought over the fourth largest city in the USA it has been decided that it should be played at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, the home of Cowboys.
The Texans have been in the Dallas area since early Sunday morning after flying directly from their preseason game in New Orleans on Saturday night. Tickets purchased for the game scheduled to be at NRG Stadium will not be valid for the game in Dallas.
The team previously said there was no timetable for their return to Houston, which has seen more than 30 inches of rain in a 72-hour span as the storm hovers over southeast Texas.
O'Brien spoke at The Star in Frisco, where the Texans were practicing after taking refuge in North Texas over the weekend. I'm not so sure it would have been fair to do so.
Texans star defensive end J.J. Watt was pleased with the decision to cancel the game and get back to Houston.

On account of several train accidents during the last few months, the image of the Railway Ministry has taken a beating. There are elections to the Himachal Pradesh later this year and the party is reportedly set to snatch power back.
A fundraising page that Watt started has already raised more than $570,000 since Sunday. This is so much bigger than football, and we're not trying to stand up here and act like we're anything more than we are.
"We've been focused on everything going on back home", head coach Bill O'Brien said Monday.
"I speak for the entire Houston Texans organization when I say that our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Houston and the surrounding areas that have been devastated by this storm", O'Brien said. "Whether it's $5, whether it's $500, whatever it may be, to see so many people's support, to see so many people send the message, spread the message, it's incredible".
The Cowboys will hold an intra squad scrimmage in the games place and that can be seen on NBC 6. "These guys have a great opportunity to go back to the city and check on their own families, get involved in the community and rally it in a lot of ways".
Cowboys Executive Vice President Stephen Jones said last week that AT&T Stadium would be made available if extreme weather prevents Houston from hosting the game.
