The first prime-time match-up of the 2018 NFL season featuring your Houston Texans hits the airwaves on Sunday night when the visiting Dallas Cowboys take the field at NRG Stadium. In addition to bragging rights within the State of Texas, the Texans will be fighting to improve to 2-3 while the Cowboys will be striving to avoid falling to 2-3. Not exactly how either fan base had hoped to begin the campaign, but there’s plenty of season left to be played, and the rivalry between the cities should make for a great atmosphere. Here’s how to catch Sunday Night Football this week.
