    Battle for the Lone Star State​
    Texans - 28​
    Cowboys - 23​
    A very tight battle in a pre-season warmup game before Season 3 gets under way. Both teams would throw picks before Houston got going with Schaub throwing a beautiful play action to Andre Johnson. It wouldn't take long before the Cowboys connected and found themselves in the endzone to tie the game. The Texans wouldn't do jack, giving the ball back to Dallas who would then kick a FG to go up by 3 points. Rookie HB Dixon drove Houston down the field and found his way into the endzone to give Houston a 14-10 lead into halftime. Both teams found the endzone once in the third by way of passing, resulting in Houston maintaining their four point lead. Again in the fourth both teams found ways to score with Dixon scoring his second of the day while I believe it was QB Johnson scored for Dallas. The major difference in the end was Dallas failing on their 2 point conversion and Dixon kept getting first downs. Starks would kneel the ball twice to end the game.​
    For Houston the rookies played good in their debut with Starks, Dixon, McGriff and Parks all involved on some big plays. ​
