    What it means: The Cowboys saved their season with a 27-13 win in Houston. With a bye coming, Dallas now has a chance to build on the momentum of this game and feel good about itself heading into a home game against Tennessee in Week 5. More importantly, the win gave some needed confidence to kicker David Buehler, who made a 49-yarder at the end of the first half to push his team ahead, 10-3. Dallas also established the running game, something it hadn’t done the first two weeks of the season. The Cowboys rushed 27 times for 101 yards on the day.

    Heroes: Roy Williams had his second 100-yard game with the Cowboys. He finished with five catches for 117 yards and two touchdowns. It’s also the 15th 100 yard receiving game of his career. Keith Brooking is one of the heart-and-soul leaders of not only the defense but this team. He came on an inside blitz and smashed Houston quarterback Matt Schaub on a third-and-goal from the 3 to force a Texans field goal in the fourth quarter.

    What's next: Rest. Kyle Kosier, who was injured, gets another week to recover from his leg injury.
