The Houston Texans are going to need to find out some way to score against the Dallas Cowboys. They won’t be able to go to Nico Collins or Brandin Cooks.

Both wide receivers are officially out for the Houston Texans game on Sunday. It’s not like the team’s offense was all that good before the two receivers went down. In fact, it’s been downright bad.

There had been talk that one or both players might have been able to come back. It turns out that isn’t the case. It will certainly be interesting to see who the Houston Texans will turn to against the number two defense in the NFL.

Other Houston Texans News

Davis Mills is back as the team’s starting quarterback and there’s been quite a bit of talk about how the last two weeks have been a kind of reset. For his part, Mills said he’s had a chance to just go back to the fundamentals to try and improve and be better for the rest of the 2022 season.

Maliek Collins has missed quite a bit of time this year, but now he’s back and played a great game against the Miami Dolphins two weeks ago especially. Texans Wire believes that Collins is in for a very big game, especially because the Dallas Cowboys are his former squad.

If and when the Texans need to turn to someone else to get the offense going, the Cowboys think the best option is going to be Dameon Pierce. Considering he’s had a rough couple of weeks outside of the first quarter against the Cleveland Browns, it will be interesting to see what he can come up with against the Cowboys.

NFL News

The biggest story outside of the Houston Texans and who they will draft in the first round is the Washington Commanders. It turns out that a new report from a special investigative committee that said that Commanders’ owner Dan Snyder is basically a dirtbag.

Snyder gave “evasive and misleading” testimony and took an approach that led to a culture on his team that was anything but helpful.
