HOU 14, DAL 6: We’re Onto Carolina

The put the finishing touches on an 0-4 this evening, falling to the 14-6.

To be quite honest there isn't much to say about tonight's performance. The Cowboys was once again stagnant, as they finish off their final two preseason games with just 9 combined points.

These backup and third string offensive linemen were as bad as you'd expect, and starting (for the night) continued to play really poorly. Rush was intercepted early in the first quarter, giving the Texans a short field to work with to take the 7-3 lead.

On the bright side the Cowboys looked impressive once again, though no expected starters saw any time.

The best news of the night, however, is that the preseason is finally over. It's now time to focus on the and the 2018 regular season. Finally.

Other Notes

  • For the second straight week outplayed Cooper Rush. I'm not sure that White will unseat Rush as the behind , but he's certainly earned some consideration. White has looked increasingly sure of himself each week during the preseason, and has clearly not been given the best supporting cast around him. With that being said, the Cowboys should still look at which quarterbacks become available on Saturday, because neither of these guys are ready for real game action.
  • There's simply no way can make this team. He's been downright awful all preseason.
  • The Cowboys is deep. Fourth round pick was all over the field tonight, providing consistent and disrupting the Texans passing attack every snap. Daniel Ross also brought a strong rush from the interior.
  • Jeron Johnson didn't have a bad night, and for these “bubble” safeties, that's saying a lot. Johnson ended up tallying double digit tackles tonight.
  • The “ three” battle appears increasingly irrelevant. Neither nor went out and won the job tonight. Honestly, looked better than both of those guys did. Running back could be a spot where the Cowboys can save a roster spot if needed.
  • had another good night, and has earned his spot as LB6 on this roster.
  • was 2/2 on field goal attempts, including a 57 yarder.
  • Former Cowboys quarterback is now the backup in Houston. Because of course he is.
  • Oh, have I mentioned the preseason is over and it's time for meaningful football. We made it, guys.
