The Houston Texans prepare for the Lone Star State shootout, preseason style
After opening up the preseason on the road against the Green Bay Packers, the Houston Texans rode off into the crisp Wisconsin night with a decisive 26-7 win. This time the trip will only be about an hour as the Texans head north to take on the Dallas Cowboys for Week 2.
Dallas enters the game with an 0-2 record, having lost to the participants of Super Bowl XLIII, The Pittsburgh Steelers in the Hall of Fame Game, and most recently the Arizona Cardinals as well. It’s safe to say that their record is a result of their younger players getting game time.
The Cowboys defense has limited points, only allowing 19 points in two games. Rookie linebacker Micah Parsons is so eager to play that he was begging for more reps in the Hall of Fame game. Parsons will be looking to get the first preseason win of his career against the Texans.
Heading into this week’s game, the questions surrounding this game are more about consistency for the Texans. Will the defensive line continue to wreak havoc? Can the offense sustain a drive enough to score through the air? Here’s a response to those questions and more ahead.
