I have watched a lot of Dallas Cowboys games in my lifetime. Here are my ten most memorable. Tell me which games you think I have missed.
OTAs are over and there is still about a month before training camp starts. And for fans of the Dallas Cowboys, there’s really not much going on right now. So let’s revisit the past. Like you, I have watched a lot of Cowboys games in my lifetime. Here are my ten most memorable.
#10 – Dallas Cowboys at Houston Texans – September 8, 2002
We often think of the good times and big wins when it comes to memorable games. This game was not one of those.
For Texans fans, this may be one of their fondest memories. This was the first game in Texans history. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones thought it would be a good idea to kick-off an in-state rivalry with the first game of the year.
Former head coach Dave Campo started his tenure with two 5-11 seasons. The Texans game was supposed to be a gimme win with an expansion team playing their first game.
Instead, former Cowboys quarterback Quincy Carter was outplayed by rookie David Carr in a battle of ugly quarterback play. Carter threw for 131 yards and an interception while Carr threw for 145 yards and an interception. The deciding factor was Carr’s first two touchdown passes of his career.
The Cowboys started year three of the Dave Capo experiment with a 19-10 loss. The team would finish a third season 5-11 and Campo would be replaced by Bill Parcells in the offseason.
