The Cowboys were pleased with their run defense  even though Arian Foster became the first running back to gain more than 100 yards against them in the last two seasons.

Foster had 106 yards on 17 carries but 61 of those yards came on three carries. In his other 14 carries, he averaged 3.2 yards a carry.

In the season opener against Washington, the Cowboys had 48 passes and 22 rushes. Last week against the Bears, they had 50 passes and 21 rushes.

On Sunday, however, the Cowboys had 30 passes and 27 rushes, so there was much more balance.

“Our whole group, we played our best game on offense today, obviously,” offensive coordinator Jason Garrett said.

*     *        *

After catching 10 passes in each of the first two games, wide receiver Miles Austin caught only two passes Sunday and was targeted only three times.

The distribution on offense was much more diverse. Jason Witten, who had only eight catches in the first two games, had seven receptions and, of course, Roy Williams had a huge day with five catches for 117 yards and a TD.

Hey, midget brain, whocares...who cares if I put some levity into my post below? The 'Boyz won and all I meant was that I was going to enjoy this win for now over the next 2 weeks.

What are you going to do? Bite your nails and worry about little things like whether Romo gets a hangnail or whether Ware inputs some of the tactical strategies he learned from the novel "War and Peace" into his game plan 2 Sundays from now?

Hey stupid, get a clue. Everything that happened in the Houston game has been dissected every which way to Sunday. I don't want to regurgitate what all the prognosticators (like you seem to think you are) have said about that game. I don't need to.

Now's the time to sit back and reflect. Get some rest. Kick you feet up. Have a beer. Watch a good movie. Read a good book. Come this coming Monday, the 'Boyz and us fans can get back to work.

I bet you don't even give your employees a vacation do you whocares? Wait a minute...with your moronic writing on here and your dim knowledge of NFL football, I bet you don't have the talent or drive to own or manage your own company. So you can't possibly have any employees.

You are probably a manure salesman.

@johnarlington, this is the only thing i can say: "what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you nothing but the title of UNIVERSAL IDIOT, and may God have mercy on your soul."

I hope that it is too RDSCT. The 'Boyz got close to the 50/50 Pass/Rush play distribution on their O against the Texans that I recommended for them last week. The 'Boyz on D were flying around ball hawking and making things miserable for the Texans O. The 'Boyz on O were gettin' after it too.

To pick out just a few 'Boyz players to congratulate for this big game would be a disservice to all the 'Boyz players that played. Everyone performed beautifully. Even the rooks.

Any mistakes made were not disastrous--as in potential game-losing mistakes. They were little mistakes--not costing the team a W. Correctable.

So hats off and game balls all around to everyone. As for the coaches--They were more cohesive and smart in this game. No apparent infighting or contradictory orders given to players. No play-call timing issues. Even with all the Houston fan noise, all plays were called, barked at the line of scrimmage, and a carried out excellently.

You saw the results--everyone, players AND coaches, on the same page equals a victory against a good, tough team like the Texans.

This 'Boyz win made me feel like I used to feel when I opened Christmas presents as a kid. Great!! I'm gonna take this new 1-2 season record out for a drive, like a toy Tonka truck, on the carpet over the next 2 weeks.

If we get to 2-2, I'm gonna take our "Schwinn Red Phantom bicycle" 2-2 record out for a spin on the neighborhood streets.

3-2, it's a 6 HP Briggs & Stratton powered mini-bike in the mud of the backyard.

4-2, we get to play with radio-controlled gasoline model airplanes at the park.

5-2, we go for the Wii gaming console.

And on and on. What do we get to play with if we make the playoffs with a 10-7 record or better? A TOP FUEL DRAGSTER!!!

A SB win?!! Don't ask--let's take care of business one game at a time.

PEACE-OUT DOG!!!

This is the turning point for the season!
