Reliant Stadium an unfamiliar place

Posted by Mike Spofford on October 12, 2012 – 3:16 pm

You can count on one hand the number of current Green Bay Packers who have played at Houston’s Reliant Stadium.

Only one was with the team the first and only time the Packers played at Reliant Stadium in 2004, and that was WR Donald Driver. Coincidentally, that was also a prime-time Sunday night game.

The other three are veterans who played in Houston while employed by other teams.

C Jeff Saturday has the most experience in the stadium, having played several years for the Indianapolis Colts, an AFC South rival of Houston’s who would travel to Reliant Stadium every season.

Also, CB Charles Woodson played against the Texans in Houston in 2004 as a member of the Raiders, and DL Ryan Pickett did the same in ’05 while with the Rams.

RB Cedric Benson played in Houston as a member of the Bengals in 2008 and in the AFC playoffs last season, but Benson is now on injured reserve.
