Tickets for the game went on sale Tuesday night and more than 40,000 have been sold with the proceeds going to the hurricane relief fund.
The Dallas Morning News is reporting that any fans who bought tickets can receive a refund or choose to have the money used as a donation to relief efforts.
Texans defensive end J.J. Watt was asked if the game on Thursday could provide a "nice distraction for the people in Houston."
This weekend Watt set up an online fundraiser to raise money for flood relief in Houston.
