yes it does, because the part of the collar that is the flywire is one solid piece of material that extends to where the numbers are sewn on.., a new material is used for the collar part around the neck..
so the texans chose to not use the flywire in order to keep the solid secondary color around the entire collar.. the steelers, chiefs, patriots, and texans. are the only teams that use the new elite 51 uniforms without the flywire, but the steelers and chiefs collar is their primary color. while the patriots have a striped collar making the texans the only team with the elite 51 unis and a solid secondary colored collar..
