    On September 8, 2002, the Houston Texans played their first game in franchise history in front of their home fans and their brand new stadium. The opponent and the result could not have been more perfect as the Texans stomped Emmitt Smith and the Dallas Cowboys, 19-10. In reality, it was two teams who were going to be really bad in 2002 (they would sport a combined record of 9-23) playing a game that only mattered because of the historic ramifications of having two teams back in Texas.

    Nine seasons and 130 games later, the two teams meet again back at the same stadium for a game of much greater stakes. It should be noted that the only other time the two teams have met in the regular season was in 2006 in Dallas, a game that the Cowboys won easily, and a game that is best known for being the game BEFORE the Tony Romo era began for Dallas.

    But this game is significant to the whole league. And for wildly different reasons.
