Texans Expose Cowboys' Weaknesses

By  | 

UNDATED (AP) - Wade Phillips had his concerns before the Dallas
Cowboys played their first preseason road game. Now the coach has
some things to address.
A mistake-filled performance in Houston only substantiated
Phillips' worries -- and created a few questions with only one game
left to get things in order before the regular season begins.
After yesterday's 28-16 loss to the Texans, Phillips said --
quote -- "It was disappointing, but we can learn from it and
that's what we're going to do."
These Cowboys (2-1) aren't perfect under Phillips, no matter how
well they played against Super Bowl champion Indianapolis and
Denver -- two victories that created an air of optimism around a
team that hasn't won a playoff game in ten seasons.
Playing for the first time in a hostile environment, the Cowboys
struggled mightily.
