HOUSTON (WOIO) -

The Houston Texans announced on Twitter the roof at NRG Stadium would be closed before their game against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

NRG Stadium has a retractable roof.

By rule the Texans have to make a decision two hours before kickoff if the roof will be closed or open.

A running joke among fans is the Texans always play with the roof closed.

"It's never open, y'all might as well cement it closed; when was the last time it was even opened for a game," A Twitter user posted on social media.

It's 83 degrees in Houston with a 15 percent chance of precipitation.

"Too nice out here again? Come on guys, this is football not basketball." Jamie Barbee posted on Twitter.
