It is the Battle of Texas in Week 2 of the NFL preseason.
The Houston Texans travel to Dallas to take on the Cowboys.

Almost as mysterious is the severity of the shoulder injury and the overall health of Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott.
Had a long talk with Dak Prescott yesterday out in Frisco. He expects to be out there when the Cowboys open the season. I think it would take a lot to keep him from playing, just not sure he'll be at 100%. Season tilts on his health.

Pride Is At Stake
Those who believe that preseason games do not matter have not been exposed to Texas football.
It is the original home of “Friday Night Lights.”
Intensity, competitiveness, and the desire to win are paramount.
Both the Texans and Cowboys want to win this game.
While Texans fans are still adjusting to life without superstar J.J. Watt who is now in Arizona, they are just hoping to see some winning football in 2021.
Conversely, the Cowboys have bolstered huge expectations for years but believe this could be the year.
Things are not rosy when this tweet summarizes how many Cowboys fans feel.
If you combined Garrett Gilbert, Cooper Rush, and Ben DiNucci you'd have a really solid backup QB
