Game Preview: The Texans and Cowboys have their final dress rehearsal tonight before the start of the regular season next week. After losing starting quarterback Tony Romo for a portion of the season, the Cowboys are opting to rest their starters tonight. This includes rookie quarterback Dak Prescott who looks to be the starting quarterback as the Cowboys begin the regular season.

The Texans will head into the season with new quarterback Brock Osweiler. Osweiler has plenty of receiving options to look to in DeAndre Hopkins and rookie receiver Will Fuller. Fuller is expected to be joined by fellow rookie Braxton Miller in the slot.
