The reason is apparently to allow the Texans to travel home, as parts of Houston are starting to clear after the devastating Hurricane Harvey.
The news comes as a surprise as the NFL had specifically stated that the game would go on, in Dallas, where the Texans have been practicing all week after they were displaced due to Harvey.
The NFL even said NFL Network would televise the game to help draw attention to hurricane relief efforts.
