Houston Astros starter Dallas Keuchel was named an honorary Homefield Advantage team captain for the Houston Texans against the New England Patriots on Sunday Night Football. Keuchel led the Texans out of the tunnel before their key game against the Patriots in a battle red uniform with his customary number 60.

The Texans mascot Toro even donned a beard and catch a pass from Keuchel with a giant glove.

The presence of the Astros ace didn't help the Texans' mojo -- Houston lost 27-6 to New England.
