The Houston Texans are visiting the Dallas Cowboys this coming Sunday afternoon and it’s going to be a huge Texas football showdown. This rivalry is enormous in the Lone Star State especially in the Houston and “everywhere else” in the Texas zip codes area.
This rivalry usually flies underneath the national radar but Sunday’s game is going to be more than for bragging rights, it’s to remain at the top of their respective divisions and for the much acclaimed Texas Governor’s Cup .
Let’s begin by stating the obvious, Justin James Watt IS the Texans Defense. Watt can do it all, he is the best Defensive End in football that I’ve ever seen. No one in that position dominates a game like he does, no one. At just 25 years of age and in his 4th year in the league in between the end zones he has virtually done it all .
Just this year alone against the Oakland Raiders Watt caught an offensive pass for a touchdown and last Sunday against the Buffalo Bills he blocked then intercepted the ball for an 80 yard return to include a pick 6. Wow!
The Texans achilles heal is the Offense and in particular the Quarterback but to put it simply the entire offense suck.
The Dallas Cowboys are firing perfectly on all cylinders and hoping for more of the same this weekend. Romo looks great, Murray looks great, the Offensive Line looks great and the Defense looks good. But for this particular game, good is all that is required for the Cowboys to come out on top.
Earlier in the week I heard Jerry Jones admit that in his 25 year ownership he had cried at the conclusion of only three football games. He stated that the loss against the Houston Texans in 2002 was on that list.
Jerry I can bet you a fajita taco that you will not have to cry at the conclusion of this game. Why you ask, well keep on reading and at the conclusion of this narrative you will find out why.
I give the edge to the Dallas Cowboys because overall they have a much better coached team. They are playing with high intensity and emotion, and because they have bought into what the Coordinators sold them.
p.s. I will be watching this game live and in person at AT&T Stadium!
Houston Texans: 12
Dallas Cowboys: 28
