    I'm more disappointed in the OP than the Cowboys.

    I couldn't see the game today so I was following the ticker. How do you get a delay of game after Time-out? What has going on at the end...did Dallas look scared?

    Maybe this is one of those type of wins we needed. Especially before gong to play in Seattle.

    not scared ..... just not into the game ..... as Coach Landry said when asked why he doesn't show emotion and get excited after a big play ..... he's thinking of what might happen three plays from now ..... this coaching staff thinks ..... OK what do we do now !

    the Texans entered the game 3-1, I think better than average is good. None the less, was a sloppy effort but once again, they came out of it with a W. I'm happy and pleasantly surprised with 4-1 go so far.

    This....following immediately on the heels of back to back wins over the Saints and the 3-1 Texans. Sigh.

    Enjoy the rare four-game winning streak.

    MORE than happy about the win and the four game winning streak ..... why I'm looking past the four game winning streak and believing we have a shot at going far this season ..... just think coach like that will cost us ..... sooner or later .....

    I only saw red zone. I don't know why or how they got delay of game

    After that.Houston started using TO before the 2 min warning - maybe the delay of game prompted them to do so.

    But the result was Dallas with 3rd and 6 with 2:17 I think to play. So Houston has TO and 2 min warming.

    So they r going to have plenty of time. Dallas has to throw and try for the first but ur still up by 7 so u don't want a turnover.

    I wouldn't say they looked scared but they were cautious. Houston got pressure and there was no play. Tony threw it awY and it was intentional grounding. So they had to punt backed up to the goal line.

    The delay of game was bad. Houston did make the plays to get a stop and then their offense executed well to get the td. So they deserve some credit for getting the game tied.

    Romo was pressing. think Romo at the line trying to make a zillion line calls. tick tick tick tick.

    Drives me nuts.

    That being said, it does appear that he was affected by the crowd noise which in retrospect explains quite a bit. It's still disappointing that they were not better prepared but it makes me not think him quite the blithering fool.

    2:27 to go Dallas up 17-10 .....
    (1&10 @ 20) ..... Murray runs the ball for 1 yard

    Houston calls time out #1 @2:23 ...(2&9 @ 21)...
    after the time out Dallas gets a delay of game plenty (-5 yards)..... AFTER the time out ..... now it's (2&14)

    (2&14 @ 16) ..... Romo throws to Harris for 8 yards

    Houston calls time out #2 @2:16 ...(3&6 @ 24)...

    (3&6 @ 24) .... Romo throws incomplete ..... STOPS the CLOCK ..... plenty on Romo for Intentional Grounding (-10 yards & loss of down) ..... WHY NOT RUN THE BALL ?????..... NO stopping the clock if incomplete NO chance of intentional grounding ...AND... it would make Houston use it's last time out or let the clock run down to the 2-minute warning ..... (4&16 @ 14) .....

    (4&16 @ 14) ..... PUNT .....

    That's just BAD coaching ..... that's my only point ..... now if they did what I think they should've done could Houston still have scored and tied it up ..... YES ..... This team is winning despite it's coaching .....

    I get why you wanted the run on 3rd and 6 just to keep the clock rolling and force them to use a time out. I get that.

    But Dallas did what they should have done there. They went for the dagger of getting a first down. They played to end the game and win it right there instead of playing not to lose.

    It didn't work out, and that happens, but they absolutely made the right call in trying to end the game there.
