The NFL canceled Thursday's game between the Houston Texans and Dallas Cowboys that had been moved to Arlington, Texas, to allow Texans players and team officials to return home to Houston to be with their families.

Tropical Storm Harvey made landfall in Louisiana Wednesday morning, bringing with it significant rain and concerns about flooding. New Orleans, however, is expected to avoid the path of the storm.
