Houston Texans Official Colors

The official colors of the Houston Texans are steel blue, blood red, and liberty white. And one of the big questions concerning the Texans is what combination of colors the team will wear for each game. The team's pants can be white, blue, or red, depending on the week and the location. The jersey can be white, blue, or red, depending on the week and the location. The helmet is always blue.

Houston Texans Uniform Combinations

The team's standard home uniform combination consists of white pants and blue jerseys. The standard road uniform is blue pants and white jerseys. But the team likes to change things up almost every week when playing at home, and they appear to have more uniform combinations than the 1979 Pittsburgh Pirates.

Special Uniform Combinations

For their first home game, which is against the Indianapolis Colts, the Texans wear white pants and white jerseys since that game is designated as Liberty White Day. The team will wear an all blue combination at home for the team's "Homecoming Day" in November. Then there is the team's Battle Red Day, that game in which they wear red pants and red jerseys.

The rest of the time, the team should wear it's standard uniform combinations, but it's rather uncommon in the NFL for a team to have five different uniform combinations, and in some ways, it's surprising that the Texans haven't devised a way to wear a different colored helmet that matches their different uniform combos.
