IRVING, Texas -- After a rocky start, Texans quarterback Matt Schaub finished 15-of-27 for 166 yards and a touchdown. Schaub was rushing everything early in the game but settled down and made some nice throws. He forced a ball into Kevin Walters that could have been picked off by Adam Jones in the second half.
Sage Rosenfels, who was solid in extended duty last season, takes over at quarterback. Cowboys reserve cornerback Alan Ball is starting to show what he can do in the second half. One of the coaches told me he "flatlined" against the Broncos last week.
Seats are still available at Texas Stadium. I'd say at least 18,000 people are still here.
