HOUSTON -- Former presidents George W. Bush and George H.W. Bush are attending Sunday's 49ers-Texans game in Houston.

The Bushes walked onto the field at Reliant Stadium about a half-hour before the kickoff to rousing cheers. Texans punter Matt Turk and kicker Kris Brown shook hands with both former presidents.

George H.W. Bush, who lives in Houston and often attends sporting events in the area, walked with a cane in his left hand. The two posed for photos and mingled with men in military uniforms on the Texans sideline.

The Bushes are guests of Texans owner Bob McNair. The elder Bush flipped the coin at midfield.
