Cowboys' preseason finally comes to end

By Calvin Watkins

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys finished the preseason with a distasteful 24-6 loss to the Houston Texans on Thursday night and finally the long, boring preseason has come to an end.

Before moving forward, a quick review of what occurred at AT&T Stadium.
"We had several guys look good," Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said. "They all sat on the bench for 60 minutes."

Coach Jason Garrett said there were some communication issues on defense leading to some bad plays, and admitted his group was outplayed overall.

"Obviously their group played better than our group," Garrett said. "You can talk a lot of different ways about that. I think in some ways it does reflect on the depth of the football team right now. But a quick turnaround, I think we'll probably see good things in the ballgame when we watch the tape. And there are obviously things we didn't really like, again, in all three phases of our team."
