“Fans, I know, I know, I know,” Smith said. “I know it’s been hard on you guys but we are going to need some of that loudest stadium in the league this week, just for Texans pride. Don’t lose the Texans pride because if we can keep it loud, we can keep him (Peyton Manning) frustrated.”
“Obviously we would appreciate as much noise as the fans bring,” Watt said. “We appreciate the support they’ve given us through some tough times. We’re excited to play one more game here at home, and we’re hoping it’s a great one.”
In the final home game of the season, the Texans will honor fans with “Fan Appreciation Day” in Sunday’s game against Denver.
