The Cowboys took the field today in Tennessee in their "cursed" navy jerseys with silver pants. They will play in them back to back weeks as they will wear them again next week in St. Louis when they play the Rams.
Jason Witten returned home to Tennessee as the Cowboys took on the Titans in Nashville. Witten's family and former college coach at the University of Tennessee, Phillip Fulmer were on the sidelines pregame to see what could possibly be Big Wit's last NFL game in his home state.
Witten finished the day with four receptions for 32 yards.
Dez Bryant had 10 receptions for 103 yards and a touchdown. It marked his fourth career game with 10-or-more receptions and the fourth-most of his career.
Bryant's 10 catches in today's game boosted him over 300 for his career to become the 11th player in team history to reach 300 receptions. He reached that mark in his 61st game to become the fastest player in team history to reach that mark.
Dan Bailey made four field goals in the game, bringing his career point total to 409 to become the second kicker (Rafael Septien – 874) in team history to reach 400 total points, and he is the sixth player overall to do so.
Barry Church intercepted a Jake Locker pass in the second quarter today to give him his second career interception and give the club its first takeaway of the year
DeMarco Murray gained 167 yards and a touchdown on a career-high 29 carries in today's game to mark the 13th time of his career that he's had 20-or-more carries. The club improved to 12-1 when he has 20-or-more carries.
With Murray rushing for over 100 yards against the Titans, he became the third player in Cowboys history to eclipse the 100-yard mark in back-to-back games to open a season and the first since Emmitt Smith did it in 1999. Emmitt Smith (three times) and Tony Dorsett (twice) are the only other Cowboys running backs to achieve this feat.
Tony Romo passed for 176 yards to reach 30,022 career passing yards. By reaching 30,000 yards, Romo became the second Cowboys quarterback to reach that milestone, joining Troy Aikman (32,942). He is the 38th player in NFL history to reach this milestone and only the fifth undrafted player to do so, joining Jim Hart, Dave Krieg, Warren Moon and Kurt Warner.
Romo also threw for a touchdown today to Dez Bryant. It gave the duo their 35th touchdown connection of their playing careers together and allowed Bryant to break a tie with Terrell Owens (34) to become Romo's top individual endzone target. Here are a few other sights from after the game…
