HOUSTON -

Mayor Annise Parker has declared Friday as "Go Houston Texans Day."

Parker is encouraging Houstonians to wear their Texans gear or something red to work in support for the team.

"Texans fans are steadfast, and I know they will show their team spirit as our bulls on parade head toward a victory," said Parker.

The Texans will take on the New England Patriots in the AFC Divisional playoff game on Sunday.

"This season, the best in the franchise's 11-year history, has been mesmerizing," said Parker. "We have watched Gary Kubiak and Matt Schaub lead our team to victory more times than ever before. And our defensive powerhouse, JJ Watt, has become a household name."

Parker also announced that City Hall will be lit battle red through the weekend as an additional show of the city's support for the team.
