From 1997 until 2002, the Cowboys were the only NFL team to reside in the state of Texas. 

But then owner Bob McNair’s expansion Houston Texans joined the league.

In fact, the Texans picked up their first-ever win in the NFL by beating the Cowboys. But Dallas has won the past three meetings between the two teams. 

In Week 4, both teams earned huge wins that likely saved their respective playoff hopes. 

Texans fans remain angry at head coach Bill O’Brien, but the team’s 37-34 overtime win over the Colts likely saved his job. 

Historically, the Cowboys have been favored in three of the four regular-season meetings. They’ve failed to cover the spread against the Texans in three out of those four contests. 

So, what does the point spread look like for the teams’ NBC’S “Sunday Night Football” tilt.  

According to Vegas Insider, most oddsmakers list the Texans as either 3 or 3.5-point favorite.
