This season, this NFL has decided to shake things up a bit by allowing teams to use a second helmet. With that in mind, the Houston Texans have elected to wear a Battle Red helmet Week 9 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Texans will be showing off their new gear in front of a larger audience than usual, with the game being televised nationally on Amazon on Thursday Night Football.

"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."
