Cowboys rookie RB Malik Davis scored his first NFL touchdown last week. Today, he reunites with Texans RB Dameon Pierce, with whom he shared a backfield at Florida.

Odds Across Sportsbooks
Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy loses the challenge. Texans WR Chris Moore is determined to have secured the 36-yard catch, which came with CB Kelvin Joseph in coverage. Ball seemed to hit the ground late in action.
Cowboys DT Osa Odighuizuwa with the inside move to stop Texans RB Dare Ogunbowale on third-and-5. Texans LG Kenyon Green injured on play. Houston takes 10-7 lead with 43-yard FG late in first quarter.
Pep Hamilton? Just awful personnel decision and terrible play calls! Unbelievable
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on Texans QBs Jeff Driskel and Davis Mills: "Those quarterbacks looked like Brett Favre. Both of them."
Holy bleep Batman. After Smith's INT, Driskel throws a 28-yard TD to Amari Rodgers. Texans lead 17-14 with 2:23 left in the first half. Cowboys were a 17-point favorite. @gallerysports
And the Texans can't finish. Jeff Driskel looked like he turned the wrong way on the fourth-down snap.
Texans rookie safety Jalen Pitre has been vital today, a force with seven tackles, five solos and two passes defensed. Texans lead Cowboys 20-17 in third quarter.

Texans kicker Ka'imi Fairbairn makes the field goal. Texans lead 20-17 at halftime. Texans' last halftime lead was Sept. 25 against the Chicago Bears. Texans have played a strong first half against heavily favored Dallas Cowboys
Kenyon Green needs to figure some things out this off-season.
Good news: the Houston Texans had a first-and-goal from the Dallas Cowboys’ 4-yard line with 5:37 to go in the game leading 23-20.
Bad news: running back Dameon Pierce was injured and unavailable.
The rookie sustained an ankle injury early in the fourth quarter and was questionable to return. Although Pierce did return for a 2-yard carry up the middle on third-and-1 from the Houston 34-yard line with 10:50 to go, it was his last touch of the afternoon.
From the Dallas 4-yard line, the Texans weren’t able to punch in the insurance touchdown, and ultimately turned the ball over on downs after a run to Rex Burkhead, a run from Jeff Driskel, an incomplete pass, and another run from Driskel

Cornerback Steven Nelson is considered questionable to return after sustaining an ankle injury against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 14. He is the third Texan to leave the game after injuries to rookies Christian Harris and Kenyon Green shook up Houston’s depth chart earlier in the half.
Nelson has been a rock-solid contributor for the Texans’ defense this season and is one of the more experienced players in the team’s secondary. He has shown an ability to play sticky coverage and make difficult tackles against opponents who attempt to gain yardage when throwing his way. His loss will force the Texans to turn to their depth at the cornerback position, which was already affected by an injury to Derek Stingley Jr. heading into this matchup
Rookie linebacker Christian Harris went down in the third quarter of the Houston Texans’ Week 14 matchup against the Dallas Cowboys with an unspecified injury. Play was stopped while he was attended to, and backup Jalen Reeves-Maybin was called on to replace him following the injury. He would walk to the locker room under his own power.
The loss of Harris could be a huge development in the game, as Houston’s defense is ill-equipped to keep up with the Cowboys’ high-octane offense. Dallas hosts an impressive cast of offensive talent that can make life difficult for any defense both in the running and passing games
Lovie Smith said he told Mike McCarthy after the game that Cowboys have " just as good a chance to win it all as anyone"
The Houston Texans have designated their two players from the practice squad to be their standard elevations for Week 14’s matchup with the Dallas Cowboys Sunday at 12:00 p.m. Central Time at AT&T Stadium.
The Texans will elevate quarterback Jeff Driskel and receiver Jalen Camp to the game day roster.
Houston could especially use Camp as they are down their top two receivers in Brandin Cooks and Nico Collins. Cooks is out with a calf injury while Collins has a foot injury.
Camp was active in Week 9 on Thursday Night Football against the Philadelphia Eagles and caught one pass for seven yards as part of his 15 offensive snaps
The Houston Texans may give all of their snaps at left guard to rookie Kenyon Green against the Dallas Cowboys.
The Texans downgraded guard Justin McCray to out and left him behind in Houston. McCray had been listed on questionable on Friday’s injury report with a hamstring injury.
Although McCray had not logged a start since Oct. 30 against the Tennessee Titans in a 17-10 loss at NRG Stadium, the 6-3, 315-pound interior offensive lineman had split time with Green at left guard, contributing with 22 and 29 snaps in the last two games

Texans coach Lovie Smith on the Cowboys' game-winning drive: "Gave them as many looks as we could … but Dak Prescott is one of the best quarterbacks in our game and he's going to hit some. I think they kind of showed a little bit of the champion in them."

Ravens improve to 9-4 on the season and remain atop the AFC North. It took 3 interceptions inside their own 20-yard line, a dominant run game (214 yards) and a poised fourth quarter by third-string QB Anthony Brown but Baltimore ended its four-game losing streak to Pittsburgh.
Cowboys were on verge of losing. Last 4 minutes saved them. "That's this business. That's the NFL," Dalton Schultz said. "McCarthy has us practice 2-minute more than almost anything. So I think we have a lot of confidence going into those situations. The D too. We compete."
Terence Steele, Johnathan Hankins, and Jake Ferguson all ruled out for the game. #Cowboys #NFL
DT Johnathan Hankins suffered a pectoral strain, per sources. He will have more tests Monday to determine the severity of the injury. He's played well since trade from Las Vegas.
Texans turn the KaVontae Turpin muffed punt into a TD. (6 plays, 24 yards) Cowboys 7, Texans 7 with 5:33 left in the first quarter
Cowboys' top 3 available cornerbacks right now: Kelvin Joseph, DaRon Bland, Nahshon Wright
The first half was one to be forgotten for the Cowboys heading into the break down 20-17 to the one-win Texans. Houston started off the second half with the ball and Dallas responded with instant momentum.
Safety Donovan Wilson broke through on a rushing attempt by Dameon Pierce and forced the ball out, which went flying towards cornerback Trevon Diggs. He recovered the loose ball and scrambled in all directions, looking like he would lose yards, then finding space before running out of gas for a 15-yard return
Water always finds its own level. So do teams coached by Mike McCarthy.
Leighton Vander Esch (illness) was questionable, but he is active today twitter.com/jonmachota/sta…
Cowboys replaced Josh Ball with Jason Peters at right tackle on their game-winning touchdown drive Sunday. Ball: "Those are my teammates, and I want what's best for the team. ...I'm proud of those guys. It was a great way to finish the game." dallasnews.com/sports/cowboys…
Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb praised Noah Brown's key catch on game-winning drive. "I told him: We got to moving the ball because of him. He sold his body for an amazing grab. It was very clutch and we got the ball moving and rolling." pic.twitter.com/Z5YnWIsKk0
Cowboys DE Dorance Armstrong exited stadium with his right foot in a protective boot. He sprained his ankle on the Hail Mary interception, a person familiar with injury said. Believed to be a low-ankle sprain. (High is more severe.)
Cowboys down 23-17 heading into 4th quarter. Cowboys are 1-16 when trailing after 3 since 2020. Only victory? Atlanta, when Dan Quinn was head coach of Falcons.
