Houston Texans honor Bob McNair with moment of silence before practice

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Football must go on for the Houston Texans as they prepare for Monday night's divisional match up against the Tennessee Titans.

But prior to Saturday's practice, Texans head coach Bill O'Brien made sure the team honored their former owner, Bob McNair, with a moment of silence.

"Bob was a great man," Coach O'Brien said as he addressed the team. "He loved Houston. He loved the Houston Texans and he loved coming out here to practice. This is his field, so let's have a moment of silence and then we'll practice."

With heavy hearts, the Texans will put their 7-game winning streak on the line against the Titans, in front of a nationally televised audience.

During Monday's game, the players will wear a special decal with McNair's initials.
