    Tony Romo threw two touchdown passes to Roy Williams, Marion Barber ran for another score, and the Dallas Cowboys got their first win by beating the Texans 27-13 on Sunday.

    The Cowboys’ defense got its first three takeaways of the season and held the Texans' top-ranked offense to 340 yards. DeMarcus Ware sacked Matt Schaub three times, and the Dallas secondary limited All-Pro receiver Andre Johnson to four catches for 64 yards.

    Romo went 23 for 30 for 284 yards, Williams caught five passes for 117 yards and the Cowboys (1-2) finally turned in a dominant performance after starting 0-2 for the first time since 2001.

    Arian Foster, the NFL’s leading rusher, ran for 106 yards on 17 carries for the Texans (2-1), who were eager to knock off the Cowboys for reasons beyond earning the franchise’s first 3-0 start.

    This city’s NFL teams have always ranked second in the state to the Cowboys in terms of fans and media attention, even during the best years of the Oilers.

    The announced crowd was 71,456, a record for a Texans game at Reliant Stadium. But Dallas supporters were well-represented and taunted the hometown fans with “Let’s Go, Cowboys!” chant in the waning minutes.
