Tweet Break: Rookie Touchdowns, Jameill Showers, and Zeke Jersey Swap

    The is officially over! A loss to the last night wrapped things up for the Cowboys, who will now get ready to face the Giants in .

    The wide and entertaining world of Cowboys was using this fourth and final preseason game to prepare for what hopes to be a memorable . Let's dive right into another post game edition of , featuring the best of the best from #DALvsHOU.

    Darius Jackson Sprinting into Shape

    While it may speak more to the Cowboys' as a whole, any the team brings in seems to instantly become a fan favorite type of player. Truer words could not be said about pick , was was not even invited to the .

    Now, he is showcasing his skills in the crowded Dallas backfield, with a great chance at making this team. Jackson scored his first career touchdown last night against the rival Texans, and had jumping up and down in the process.

    Forcing Turnovers…with a Rookie!??

    Undoubtedly, the Cowboys' needs to find a way to force more turnovers in 2016. Playing is always good way to practice this, and even another sixth round rookie understands that.

    The speedy was able to pick off Weeden down the sideline, and return the ball to the house for his first defensive turnover and touchdown in the NFL.

    With 's health still a concern for the aging corner, Brown should be ready for whatever can throw at him as a slot defender – where he has received the bulk of his work this preseason – in 2016 and beyond.

    A Heavy Chance of Showers

    As expected, played the entirety of this game at for the Cowboys. While his performance was less than stunning, Showers did have to once again work without the luxury of Dallas' first team offensive line or pass catchers.

    Here is a little bit of what people were saying about Jameill's performance:

    The Ohio State's Finest

    When Braxton Miller went down with an in his 2014 season at Ohio State, had to carry the Buckeyes to the National Championship – which he did.

    Now, both players will be looking to separately lead their team's offenses this season. Elliott, the 4th overall pick by the Cowboys, and Miller, the 85th overall pick by the Texans, swapped jerseys on Thursday night.

    When it comes to the success that these two teams will have in the state of Texas this year, just look to the performances of Elliott and Miller.

    All eyes will be on Elliott in just nine days, as he'll make his regular season debut with expectations higher than ever for a rookie running back that has played in just one game so far.
