Tickets to the expansion Houston Texans' September 8th home opener against the Dallas Cowboys sold out in less than 20 minutes on Saturday. Single-game tickets went on sale at 10:00 a.m. Within an hour, about half the total inventory was gone.
The December 29th season finale against the former Houston Oilers -- now the Tennessee Titans -- is also headed for a quick sellout. About 57,000 of the 69,500 seats are already held by season-ticket holders. That left about 18% of the capacity available for single-game purchase. All eight home games are expected to sell out.
