'Boys fall hard in Houston

Failing to score a touchdown until the fourth quarter, the Dallas offense continues to come under massive scrutiny.

Four preseason games in the books - and no legitimate offensive touchdowns.

What started as a lingering trend from last season has now created panic in the silver and blue nation.

Following a 23-7 thrashing at the hands of the Houston Texans Saturday night, there weren't a whole lot of answers afterwards either.

"We just didn't play good," Jason Witten said afterwards, "and we have to look at each other and try to get accountable for ourselves."

"It's not just one person or anything like that," Tony Romo said. "It is all of us. It's everybody. But it's correctable. We all just need to execute better. I don't know how else to say it."

Romo completed 13-of-18 passes for 146 yards but threw an interception after a pass was deflected downfield. He also fumbled a snap and had a backwards pass recovered by the Texans as well.

Meanwhile the Texans ran over the Cowboys, literally, all night long.

Arian Foster rushed for 110 yards and a touchdown, while QB Matt Schaub threw a TD pass in the surprisingly easy 23-7 win.

The Cowboys also forced a turnover deep in their own territory that was called back. On a third-and-goal from the Dallas 6, DeMarcus Ware stripped the ball from Schaub and recovered the ball.

However the turnover was called back due to a penalty on linebacker Jason Williams. Houston scored on the next play to continue the woeful evening.

The loss dropped the Cowboys to 2-2 in the preseason. Dallas concludes preseason play Thursday night against Miami.

Kickoff at Cowboys Stadium is set for 8:00 PM.
