This is always a fun matchup for the state of Texas, with the Houston Texans set to face the Dallas Cowboys in the regular season for just the fourth time since the Texans entered the NFL in 2002.
Dallas leads the series 2-1, but it was the Texans who won the first meeting between the two teams in 2002 by a 19-10 score in Houston.

Since then the Cowboys have won the matchup in 2006 and ’10.
I assume it is safe to say that will be some really get football between those two, and should be really exciting to see how those to find ways to stop each other from having success.

It is also fun to have both teams entering this game with 3-1 overall winning records. This game means a lot in the standings, as it will put the winner three games over the .500 mark in the first five weeks of the season.
I also want to see how the Cowboys plan to put pressure on Ryan Fitzpatrick, and if they are able to get past the offensive line of the Texans. This past Sunday the Cowboys controlled the Saints’ offense, holding them to just 14 points.
This game should be exciting for all football fans, not just fans of the two teams from Texas.
