Two in-state rivals heading in wildly different directions could indicate a blowout to come for the Cowboys, but anybody can lose in the NFL, and the Texans want to serve that reminder
FRISCO, Texas — It's one of the more lopsided matchups you'll see in the NFL this season, and that's precisely why it might be dangerous. When the Dallas Cowboys take on the Houston Texans, they'll do so at home and as 17-point favorites against a 1-10-1 team that is aimed right at the top pick in the next draft.
But with absolutely nothing to lose on Sunday (not even draft-wise with the Chicago Bears having won two more games than them), the Texans could very well be looking for what would be the biggest feel-good moment of their otherwise loathsome season:
Defeating their in-state rival on their own field, dampening the chances of chasing down the Philadelphia Eagles in the process.
For the Cowboys, it'll be about keeping the same Mamba Mentality they displayed in their 54-19 dismemberment of the Indianapolis Colts, because there's no luxury to lose ground in the race for the NFC East crown and, potentially, the top seed in the entire conference (and the bye week that comes along with it).
Tune in to see if the Cowboys play with their food, or if they scrape the plate for a second week in a row.
