Even with cheating allegations hanging over the heads of the Astros, one of their biggest stars and his wife took the time to visit their football counterparts in Houston.

2019 AL Cy Young award winner Justin Verlander and Kate Upton were down on the field with the Texans ahead of the team's matchup against the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday Night Football.

The two of them took photos with standout quarterback Deshaun Watson and spoke with injured star JJ Watt.

Fortunately, they picked the right game to go to. The Texans managed to edge out a 20-17 win thanks to a fourth-quarter touchdown pass from Watson to wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins. They now hold a slim one-game lead over the Colts in the AFC South.

It was all part of a strong performance in which Watson completed 63.3% of his passes for 298 yards and two touchdowns.

Perhaps the Texans can push forward and make a Super Bowl run after the Astros came one game short of taking home another World Series title.
