So who played well vs. the Texans?

IRVING -- With all the negativity coming from the Cowboys' 23-7 loss to the Houston Texans on Saturday night, there had to be some positive things coming from this game.


Doug Free, Leonard Davis, Jay Ratliff, Junior Siavii and Akwasi Owusu-Ansah earned some praise from coach Wade Phillips.

"Free played real well again, Leonard Davis played real well," Phillips said. "We had particular guys that did real good things. Ratliff played really well. They couldn't block him, which is normal. We took him out and he was, 'Let me back in. Let me back in.' We took him out in the first quarter, at times, and he went back in some. Guys like that. And some of the young guys did good things."
