It’s the Dallas Cowboys third game of the presason and you know what that means - the dress rehearsal. In the Cowboys case, it is sort of a dress rehearsal when they take on the Houston Texans on Saturday night.
Coach Mike McCarthy stated that the 1s on defense should see snaps all the way through the first half of the game. They’ll be without DeMarcus Lawrence and Neville Gallimore, but most of the rest should be out there. All eyes will be on the linebackers to see how Dan Quinn handles that group, and who starts opposite Trevon Diggs at outside corner. We should get an inkling of what things will look like come Week 1 versus Tampa Bay.
On offense, things will not be so clear. Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott will not play, and the 1s on offense should only get a couple of series before they substituted off for a look at the depth players.
