The Houston Texans needed their stars to shine against the Dallas Cowboys during their third preseason game on Saturday night at Reliant Stadium. The Texans came through with their first win of the preseason in a 23-7 victory over the Cowboys.
During the first quarter the Texans defense held the Cowboys to a total of -1 yards. Outstanding!

The Texans were fired up while the Cowboys looked disillusioned. Neither team excelled in the red zone, as well as both were plagued by penalties at the worst possible times.

Here is a look at the top five Texans performers in the game, and on the other hand the bottom five performers in the game and why.
