Rookie Jones leads Texans over Cowboys

Aug 26, 2007 - 2:56 AM By Ted Dunnam PA SportsTicker Contributing Writer

HOUSTON (Ticker) - Rookie Jacoby Jones scored two touchdowns, including one on a 91-yard punt return, to lead the Houston Texans to a 28-16 preseason victory over the Dallas Cowboys Saturday night.

Jones also caught a 19-yard scoring pass from Matt Schaub 32 seconds before halftime to give Houston a 21-6 lead.

Dallas suffered its first loss in three exhibition games while Houston improved to 2-1.

Jones' punt return came with 13:01 left in the first quarter and produced the game's first score. A third-round draft pick from Lane College, Jones returned a punt 80 yards for a touchdown last week against Arizona.

After collecting just one first down and 17 yards of offense in the first quarter, the Texans (2-1) scored a touchdown the first time they had the ball in the second quarter.

Schaub's 6-yard scoring toss to Andre Johnson capped an 84-yard drive, highlighted by Ahman Green's 46-yard run for a 14-0 lead.

Schaub completed 12-of-16 passes for 109 yards and two touchdowns. He was sacked once.

Dallas got on the scoreboard when Tony Romo threw a 35-yard touchdown pass to Terrell Owens in the second quarter, but Martin Gramatica's PAT was wide right, leaving Houston with a 14-6 lead.

Romo pulled Dallas within 21-13 with an 18-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jason Witten in the third quarter.

Romo completed 14-of-22 passes for 197 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.

Cowboys rookie Nick Folk kicked a 23-yard field goal in the fourth quarter for a 21-16 score.
