Are you ready for some football? In Texas, the answer is a unanimous yes!
At Cujo’s Sports Bar & Grill, we are excited to bring you all the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans preseason and regular season games. Here’s an overview of what to expect for from both teams this season.
With Tony Romo signed to CBS as a broadcaster, the Dallas Cowboys are officially in the Dak Prescott era (last season was just a precursor to the inevitable). Quarterback Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott are set for promising sophomore seasons; however, the Cowboys lost talent to free agency, which could affect their win-loss record. Plus, wisdom and experience tells us one season of success doesn’t necessarily lead to two.
With Prescott, Elliott, and wide receiver Dez Bryant leading the charge, the Cowboys will be an NFC favorite even though they were one-and-out in last year’s postseason. The rival New York Giants are projected to win the NFC East, so wins against their divisional foe will be important.
First preseason game: @ Arizona Cardinals (Hall of Fame Game) | Thu, August 3 | 7:00 pm CDT
One of the most agreed on things that the Texans did in the offseason was getting rid of QB Brock Osweiler; a move the organization can be proud of for a while. As a result, the Texans still lack a quality starting quarterback. Tom Savage probably isn’t the answer, perhaps first-round draft pick Deshaun Watson will win the starting job in training camp.
Defense has carried the Texans to the AFC South title the past three seasons. JJ Watt will be back (and hopefully healthy) this season, but lost key players at cornerback and safety. As a result, the Texans remain the same at quarterback, have a subpar offensive line, and a defense that’s missing some parts. It could be a long season for the Texans, who likely won’t contend for their fourth-straight AFC North title.
