Week 5 is now upon us.
The Texans travel north this weekend to face the Cowboys for the fourth time in franchise history. They took the first one, 19-10, in the franchise's inaugural game in 2002. The Cowboys won the next two in 2006 and 2010.
But this is the first time both teams will enter the game with winning records. The 2002 game was the first of the season. The Texans were on the wrong side of .500 in 2006, and the script was flipped
when a struggling Cowboys squad came to NRG Stadium and beat Houston in 2010.
On Monday, head coach Bill O'Brien said "Dallas is an excellent football team", and then proceeded to list nine reasons why that's the case.
1."Hot right now."
2."Very well coached; they have a great coaching staff."
3."Really top notch players on both sides of the ball."
4."(RB DeMarco) Murray,"
5."(QB Tony) Romo,"
6."(WR) Dez Bryant,"
7."(TE) Jason Witten,"
8."the offensive line."
9. "It's on the road. Playing on the road is very difficult. Our guys have to understand that challenge and be up to that challenge."
