IRVING, Texas -- With Cowboys linebacker Kevin Burnett out with a knee injury, Bradie James will end up playing on more passing downs. On the Texans' touchdown earlier in this quarter, James allowed wide receiver Kevin Walter to cross his face and then waltz in for an easy score.
James was called out a couple of years ago by Lions quarterback Jon Kitna for being clueless in pass coverage, but it's a part of his game that he's really improved. When he first came out of LSU in 2003, he was very stiff and had trouble identifying certain routes. He's better now, but as Walter showed, there is still room for improvement.
Cowboys score to make it 17-10, and we have a barnburner on our hands.
