For the fourth time in franchise history, the Texans will face the Cowboys in a regular season game. The Week 5 showdown in Arlington will be the team's second away game in the series, and it's the first time the Texans will face Dallas on the road since a 34-6 loss in Week 6. CBS will televise the noon kickoff on October 5.

"We know when we go to play the Dallas Cowboys that our fans are going to be behind us, and we know that they'll be very excited for that game," head coach Bill O'Brien said. "Texas is a football state. So any time you have a chance to have the two pro football teams in the state of Texas play, that's a great thing for the NFL, and for both fanbases."

The two teams last met in Week 3 of 2010, when Dallas triumphed 27-13.

The lone win over Dallas came at home in the first year of the expansion franchise's existence, as the Texans toppled the Cowboys by a 19-10 margin in 2002.

In that memorable victory, the Texans struck first on a David Carr to Billy Miller 19-yard touchdown pass, 1:14 into the game. They never trailed in the contest, and iced the win with 2:37 left in the game when Seth Payne sacked quarterback Quincy Carter for a safety.  

Houston closed the 2013 preseason with a victory at AT&T Stadium, and the early-October meeting will be the second trip to the new facility for the Texans.
