The win over the Seahawks improved Dallas' 2014 record to 5-1, the first time since the 2007 team started 5-1, and the 13th time overall.

The Cowboys combined for 94 rushing yards in the first half today against Seattle, the most rushing yards Seattle has surrendered in a first half this season, and the highest total that the Seahawks have allowed in a game.

By reaching 100 career field goals made, Dan Bailey's stats qualified amongst league record books for accuracy. By connecting on 91.07% of his field goals, he is now the most accurate kicker in NFL history.

Dez Bryant had 63 yards on four catches today to pass Miles Austin (4,481) for seventh on the club's all-time receiving yards list.

DeMarco Murray rushed 29 times for 115 yards and one touchdown. After rushing for 118 yards against San Francisco (9/7), 167 yards at Tennessee (9/14), 100 yards at St. Louis (9/21), 149 yards against New Orleans (9/28), and 136 yards against Houston (10/5) Murray's 115 yards allowed him to become only the second player in NFL history, behind Jim Brown (1958), to record a streak of six consecutive games to open the season with 100 rushing yards. Murray's 785 yards through the first six games of the season are the most in team history and seventh-most in NFL history.

Tony Romo made his 114th career start to tie Roger Staubach (114) for the second-most quarterback starts in team history. Troy Aikman owns the top spot with 165 career starts. Romo completed 21-of-32 passes for 250 yards with two touchdowns to post a 110.2 quarterback rating, the 58th game of his career with a rating of 100.0-or-better – best in franchise history.

Jason Witten played in his 177th consecutive game today to break a tie with Dale Hellestrae (176, 1990-2000) for the second-longest streak in team history. Bob Lilly owns the franchise record with 196 consecutive games played. Witten had two receptions to reach 900 for his career to become only the second tight end in league history (Tony Gonzalez), the first Dallas Cowboy and the 16th player in NFL history to reach 900 career receptions. He reached 900 receptions in his 181st game to become the fastest NFL tight end all-time to reach that mark – and also ranks as the eighth-fastest amongst all NFL receivers. Along with already reaching 10,000 career receiving yards last week against Houston (10/5), Witten becomes the 16th player in NFL history – and only the second tight end (Tony Gonzalez) - to reach both 900 career receptions and 10,000 career yards.
