HOUSTON — Rico Gathers recorded his first career reception in the first quarter. Entering Sunday night’s game, Geoff Swaim was the Cowboys’ only tight end with a catch in a regular-season game.
Gathers got behind the defense and caught a 32-yard strike from Dak Prescott on Dallas’ second possession. The play along the right sideline helped set up a second field goal, giving the Cowboys an early 6-0 lead.
Gathers, who has made highlight grabs in the preseason and training camp practices, has played in all but one game this season. In his three previous games, Gathers was targeted three times.
