Houston Texans linebackers came to NRG Stadium prepared for battle against the AFC-leading New England Patriots.

NFL UK's Twitter account posted a video of Texans linebackers dressed in SWAT costumes a few hours before kickoff. Check it out in the tweet below:

You might remember the last time Texans players wore a special outfit before playing the Patriots in a meaningful game.

Houston players wore varsity lettermen jackets to Gillette Stadium before a December "Monday Night Football" game during the 2012 season. Social media laughed at the Texans, and that was before they lost 42-14 on national television.

Will the Texans suffer the same fate Sunday night? The odds are against them. After all, the Patriots have won nine of the last 10 meetings between these two teams.
