It was over when
Texans receiver Jacoby Jones took the Cowboys first punt back 91 yards for a touchdown. It was the second straight week Jones returned a punt for a touchdown; he brought one back 80 yards in last week's win over Arizona. Houston's David Anderson had a 17-yard touchdown pass late in the fourth-quarter to thwart a modest Cowboys comeback attempt.
Houston quarterback Matt Schaub was on target in his third preseason start, completing 12-of-16 passes for 109 yards and two touchdowns. For the Cowboys, reserve receiver Sam Hurd made the most of his time on the field, catching four passes for 68 yards.
Dallas surrendered 152 yards on the ground to the Texans. Houston starter Ahman Green accounted for 65 of those yards on eight carries.
