Sunday Night Football, Week 5. Tonight the Dallas Cowboys travel south across Texas to Houston to take on the Houston Texans in the battle for Texas.

The Cowboys come into the game with a 2-2 record, while the Texans come in struggling at 1-3.

The Cowboys are led by young quarterback Dak Prescott, who has struggled as he has lost receiving weapons, and running back Ezekiel Elliott. The Cowboys defense, led by elite pass rusher Demarcus Lawrence, has been solid this year, but the offense has struggled to put points on the board, scoring 20 points or less in three of the first four games.

The Texans come into the game looking to salvage their season, which started with playoff hopes. The offense is led by sophomore sensation quarterback Deshaun Watson and his star receiver Andre Hopkins, who is on pace for a monster 1700+ yards receiving season. The Texans defense is anchored by defensive linemen J.J. Watt, Jadeveon Clowney and Whitney Mercilus. The once proud Texans defense has been torched for 27+ points in three of the first four games this season.

It’s the Cowboys vs. the Texans in an all Texas Sunday Night Football clash.

Enjoy the game everybody.
