Former Texas A&M quarterback and soon-to-be NFL draftee Johnny Manziel and Houston Texans running back Arian Foster were spotted enjoying the Houston Rockets game together at Toyota Center on Thursday night. Could this be a harbinger of things to come?

The Texans signed Ryan Fitzpatrick on Thursday, but new coach Bill O'Brien has not announced whether the team will draft a new quarterback with their No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, which begins on May 8.

The duo apparently brought some good luck to the Rockets, who routed Minnesota Timberwolves 129-106. Dwight Howard even shared a photo of himself with the duo after the game. (Note how short Manziel and Foster and look next to the 6-ft, 11-in. Howard).
