After visiting New Orleans last weekend for Super Bowl XLVII, Texans chairman and CEO Bob McNair remains hopeful that Houston’s bid to host Super Bowl LI in 2017 will be successful. Houston is one of two finalists for the game. It will be competing against South Florida or San Francisco, who are the finalists to host Super Bowl L in 2016. The runner-up of that competition will go head-to-head with Houston for the NFL’s 51st Super Bowl.
