The 2015 season was a memorable one for a variety of reasons. The Texans overcame a slow start, injuries and adversity to win seven of their last nine games and claim their third AFC South title in five seasons.
However, the season wasn't just memorable for the play on the field. It was also notable for those who stood on the sideline. Between entertaining halftime performances and energetic Homefield Advantage Captains, there was a lot of firepower at NRG Stadium this year.
This list was difficult to narrow, but below are the Top 5 gameday guests from the 2015 season.
