Our Houston Texans are getting prepared to do battle with the rival Dallas Cowboys this Sunday, in Dallas. It will be a very hard fought and physical matchup.

Dallas obviously has a very good team constructed this year, and here is my preview of the Dallas Cowboys...

Let's start with the Dallas Cowboys offense. They are a very productive unit, averaging 28 points per game, ranking 3rd in the NFL.

Cowboys QB Drew Bledsoe is currently under some fire in Dallas for his starting role, having struggled some late. He certainly has experience, a 14-year veteran. Through 4 games, Drew Bledsoe has 5 TD passes, but 7 INTs. His QB rating of 63.6 ranks 27th in the NFL.

Drew Bledsoe has been sacked 10 times in these first four games, showing he is very immobile. When pressured correctly, the opposing team has a healthy probility to either come away with a sack or force Bledsoe to throw an interception. Be cautious though, when given time, Bledsoe has that laser rocket arm and can certainly find receivers and make big this happen for his offense.

As usual, a Bill Parcells coached team always has a pretty solid running game. This team is no acception, and have two young, very talented running backs. Juluis Jones and Marion Barber. Both are very productive, Juluis Jones sees msot of the reps during the game, and he is averaging a great 4.5 yards per carry. Jones has also seemed to find a way to take care of the football a little more this season.

As for Marion Barber, he is more of a power type back and would be used more in short yardage or goal line situations.

In terms of the Dallas Cowboys wideouts, I think we all know who the big ones area. Terrel Owens and Terry Glenn. Terrel Ownes is extremely talented, obviously a tremendous playmaker, perhpas that is why he has 5 Pro Bowl appearances. His size is also a tremendous asset.

Terry Glenn is a hugely talented WR for Dallas obviously as well. With Drew Bledsoe's strong arm and Glenn's speed downfield, Glenn can make some huge plays. Through these first four games, Terry Glenn has 20 receptions, nearly 300 yards and 3 touchdowns.

The Cowboys offensive weakness in their offense line. This is obviously another reason QB Drew Bledsoe gets pressured often. In short, injuries combinded with departures of key veterans has overall weakened this o-line some.

Defene for the Dallas Cowboys, they have a rather young unit, run the 3-4, and I have read that Parcell's version of this 4-3 defense relies on the outside linebackers to bring pressure off the edge with the three defensive lineman getting blockers off the inside linebackers to make some tackles.

The Cowboys defensive line features some good talent including Jason Feurgeson, Chris Canty and Marcus Spears. This is a very effective defense line in this leauge.

Another key player of this Dallas D is Outside Linebacker Demarcus Ware. He has nearly 3 sacks already this season, and is well on his way to exceeding his mark of 8 last season.

Another key defensive lineman for Dallas is Braddie James. Already this season, James has collected 17 tackles and a pic six. He is a very aggresive player, seems to always make the tackle, alothough he was exposed as wee seen in the Cowboys loss to Philadelphia last game.

In terms of Dallas's Cornerbacks, this area is led by Terrance Newman. He has tremendous athletisism and great ball skills. He is such a big threat that opposing offene's have tended to shy away from his some so far this year, and as a result, he is yet to have an interception, however, is very capable of making that huge play. At times some say Newman is to much of a risk taker.

The other Dallas CB, Anthony Henry is a solid player. He tries to jame opposing WR's at the line sometimes, he is also a tremendous tackler. He is a physical player at 6-1 208 lbs, and has 20 career interceptions. Like Terrance Newman, Anthoney Henry's flaw may be taking to many risks.

The leader of this Cowboy's D is no doubt, Safety Roy Williams. He is 220 pounds, and is known for laying big hits on opposing WR's for going over the middle, and sometimes causing fumbles. His pass defense is said to need work, but he can certainly defend the pass.

Special Teams for Dallas, Kicker Mike Vanderjact is very reliable, one of the best in the game, when is healthy though, which has been a problem for him as of late. The Cowboys punter is Matt McBair who is stepping up and getting the job done as punter.

Again, I am looking foward to this game, it's a big game for our Houston Texans and will be a very hard fought game.

Here, let me save you some time. The key is to get somebody in a Texans uniform within 10 feet of Drew Bledsoe and then watch him throw it to whoever your favorite cornerback or safety is.

(yeah, I'm still bitter about Jacksonville and Philly :brickwall )

While that's true, does Roy Williams still have nightmares about Santana Moss? Or have they grown into trying to cover any receiver?

I hope your joking......Pete Hunter?!?!? hahahahahahahahaha

Our cornerbacks are Anthony Henry, Terence Newman, and Aaron Glenn.


All streaks come to an end.

you do know that Newman has matched up against some of the best WR in the game. Steve Smith for example, Santana Moss, Larry Fitzgerald, and many other top receivers, Randy Moss. Last season alone Terence Newman did not allow 1 touchdown, and he did not have any pass interference penalties.

Im pretty sure he doesnt have any nightmares about Santana Moss, He has allowed 0 touchdowns this season and already has two interceptions. He has given up one play of over 40 yards, and that was LJ Smiths 60 yard catch and run on Sunday. So its pretty obvious that covering is not the issue this season.

Which proves how subjective that stat it. Does anybody deny Roy Williams had an opportutnity on the Reggie Brown flea-fliker pass? He took a horrible angle, it might not be his fault scheme wise, but if your gonna run accross the whole field, you might as well make a play when you get there.

Ya know, we only gave up 24 points to Philly and you gave up 38 obviusoly thats a function of turnovers, but if we can protect the ball like we have this whole season minus the Indy game, we are gonna have a shot to be in this at the end.

He played a huge role in letting Reggie Brown catch a TD pass he had no business catching. Roy Williams is so overrated, he's horrible in coverage, last week proved it. I laughed at his goofy angle and how he lost the ball.

He's good for two things: Big hits and cheap shots. He tried to cheapshot McNabb when he did that sneak in for a TD, after it was already blatantly obvious McNabb crossed the plane, Williams snuck in with his helmet and tried to blast him. Weak.

You do know that 23 games dates all the way back to 3 games before the end of the 2004 season. I dont care if he hasnt guarded AJ yet, he sure has guarded some good receivers, and that is definetly a long span to not allow a touchdown, regardless of who you are guarding as a cornerback!!!

Yes he did take a bad angle, but as parcells stated in his press conference, Pat Watkins gave up 21 points on Sunday. Yeah Roy was involved in the play, but it was not his fault. It was Pat Watkins fault

Tuna hasn't figured out who is going to start on Sunday--Watkins, Keith Davis, or Marcus Coleman. In other words, he hasn't decided whether he wants to be shot, stabbed or kicked in the head repeatedly.

He just needs his line to do his work.

If your team is thinking about starting a FS who couldn't even make the Texan's roster, your team is in trouble.

I'd go with Watkins, he's the one with the best excuse - 2nd day rookie.

I really want to see AJ against Newman one-on-one. This could really be a fun game as we are going to have 4 of the best receivers in the game on the field at the same time and its going to be a matter as which guys make the most plays, hopefully AJ will keep up his streak of consecutive 100 yard games and Emo can get back into the thick of it. Cmon Texans!
Also, big plays should be plentiful with the 4 safeties on the field all being liabilities in coverage.

Umm, Drob, this would be a good game to kinda step it up a little...just a suggestion...

That match-up willbe something else.. Last season TNew limited 0 TDs from any opposing WRs.. That streak could be still alive, but after last Sunday I'm not so sure..

Both are fairly early in their careers, and are making that pivotal last step into becoming something truly special, in addition to gaining respect around the league.

You must enjoy talking to yourself.......... Thought so.

And it all depends on what side of the field AJ and Newman are on, if they are line up left side, then its Watkins, right side its Roy at SS. Get it straight before spewing garbage....

Carr will continue to shout
if the Texans don't provide
better protection.

Irving(AP)
Quarterback David Carr came out heaving, throwing an interception on his first pass early in the Texans 42-7 blowout loss to the state rival Dallas Cowboys, Sunday October 15th.
''I wouldn't say we ambushed them,'' Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens said, "well actually we did, hahahaha.''Owens joked with reporters, after scoring two touchdowns and recording his first 100 yard game as a Dallas Cowboy. Dallas after losing to Houston in 2002, came out today and dominated Houston from start to finish.
This game, was for bragging rights in a state where football is king.
''Now they can go back to Houston and have a hard-knock life,'' said Cowboys defensive end Marcus Spears. ''We ruined their season.''
For the Texans, it was downright embarrassing. David Carr even said so.
''We did nothing good,'' said Carr, who threw for 145 yards and was sacked 7 times, ''We have a long way to go and a short time to get there.''
Said Texans owner Bob McNair: ''I'm disappointed for Texans fans everywhere.''
As the Cowboys celebrated on their side of the field, across the way Carr and the gang threw down towels with looks of disgust and embarrasment on their faces.
Carr was 10-for-22 for 145 yards with zero touchdowns and three interceptions. He also was sacked seven times, and fumbled twice, both of which were recovered by Dallas.
Bledsoe was 20-for-32 for 315 yards and 4 touchdowns.
