It's also incorrect if they are saying 66,355 is 95.5% of capacity. That would mean Reliant's capacity was 69,482 in 2003. Reliant capacity was 69,500 in 2002 but they added some super-nosebleed seats at each end in 2003 to increase the capacity to over 70,000.

Here's the Texans 2003 paid attendance per the NFL gamebooks:

KC 70,487
JAX 70,041
NYJ 70,623
CAR 70,052
NE 70,719
ATL 70,388
TEN 70,758
IND 70,680

Avg: 70,469
Street and Smith's numbers probably included away games but we will not know 100% without a link.

AJ, as always, you are right on top of things!
