The Houston Texans and Dallas Cowboys meet up in Week 2 of the 2021 NFL preseason at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m. ET. Houston broadcast info for the game can be found here, while the game will air on KTVT 11 (CBS) in the Cowboys market. Given that this is the preseason, we’ll see plenty of unknown and lesser known faces on the rosters. To keep track of who you’re watching checking out the Texans roster and the Cowboys roster.

Two Matt Prater field goals at in the last two minutes of gametime doomed the Cowboys to a 19-16 loss to the Arizona Cardinals last Friday, something that will for sure be spotlighted in a later episode of Hard Knocks. With Dak Prescott obviously out, Cooper Rush, Garrett Gilbert, and Ben DiNucci shared the reps at quarterback for the night, combining for 215 yards and a touchdown. Dallas also had plenty of players check in at running back and receiver for the exhibition while their normal starters sat.

The Texans notched a 26-7 win at the Green Bay Packers last Saturday thanks in huge part to turnovers. Defensive tackle Jaleel Johnson recovered two fumbles himself while Tremon Smith came away with an interception on the evening. Offensively, running backs Scottie Phillips and Darius Jackson accounted for both touchdowns.

If you aren’t around a TV to check out this preseason contest, you’ll need to dig a little deeper for streaming options. While regular season games are usually available outside the two local markets, preseason games are much more limited. To view this game via live online stream, you’ll need to use NFL Game Pass. If you are not planning on watching every week of the preseason, the service offers a free seven-day trial.

The Cowboys are a 3.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook and -190 on the moneyline. The Texans are a +160 moneyline underdog. The point total is installed at 27 with the over juiced to -115.
