After no Texans recorded a statistic in the third quarter, Texans defensive end Mario Williams made his presence felt early in the fourth with his second sack of the game. On third-and-13 for the NFC from the AFC 16-yard line, Williams dropped Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo for a loss of five yards.
That forced the NFC into a field goal, which David Akers converted from 39 yards out to tie the game with 11:43 left to play.
Williams' two sacks tonight are more than every other player has combined. San Francisco defensive end Justin Smith has one sack; everybody else in the game has zero.
