Wide Receivers – After suffering from various injuries the prior two seasons, the Texans’ Andre Johnson returned to form last year. He recorded 112 receptions for 1,598 yards and four touchdowns. The Cowboys Dez Bryant also had a stellar statistical season in 2012. He recorded 92 catches for 1,382 yards and 12 touchdowns. Both players are high-level athletes, but Bryant has the slight edge over Johnson now due to his youth and upside. One is going into his 11th season, while the other is only in his fourth.

Regardless, Dallas outshines Houston in depth. The Texans’ roster currently includes seven rookie wideouts and no one opposite of Johnson of any real repute outside of their first round draft pick from this year, Clemson’s DeAndre Hopkins. The Cowboys have veteran Miles Austin, the emerging Dwayne Harris, Cole Beasley and rookie Terrance Williams out of Baylor. On depth alone: Advantage Dallas.

    Alert! Homer article. Dallas is mad about Houston landing Dwight Howard so the haters are out in full force. That and the Texans are the only team with a chance of doing anything this year and the years to come. You guys hate that Houston sports is on the rise. The truth is the truth. In the last 2 seasons the Texans have won twice as many playoff games as the Cowboys have in past 16. Outside of baseball Dallas really isn’t doing anything. The Mavs keep striking out in free agency and don’t look to be a premier sports franchise anymore. Until the Double J decides to give up total control of franchise, the Cowboys will only be relevant because of the stars on their helmet

    LMAO!!!!!! most of the comparisons were ok But they were also a lil off ….First They claim we have Andre Johnson and 7 rookie receivers which isn’t true we have 3 receivers who played last year and we only drafted 2. but ill give Dallas receivers on the strength of proven dept (Miles Austin )…. even though Head 2 Head Andre Johnson is better than Dez , I cant see how Dallas is better at Corner you either give that to The Texans or leave it at a push and I read his review on Kicker and Punter which was obviously Pro Texans but left it as a push just so it would not be tied and the Headline could be true lmao #ClassicDallas but your not better on paper or the field #RespectThaBull

    I am a Cowboy fan and even I know the Texans are better than the Cowboys. Just look at the records and playoffs. This is a ridiculous exercise. That’s why the games are not played on paper.
