HOUSTON (KTRK) --Texans ticket prices are going up in 2017, the team announced Friday morning.
The average general ticket will cost $103.69 next season, a 6.55 percent increase from the 2016's average $97.32 ticket cost.
The least expensive tickets -- gridiron endzone -- will cost $50.50 on average, while the most expensive -- field-level prime -- will average $175.
Texans' fans were quick to react to the increase. Many had scathing criticism of the team's and specifically Brock Osweiler's performance.
