CowBuzz: Social Media Goes Behind the Scenes vs. Houston

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and it was definitely on display in today's game against the Texans.

The Cowboys win over the Texans improved Dallas' 2014 record to 4-1, the first time since the 2008 team started 4-1, and the 15th time overall.

Dan Bailey was two-of-three on field goals today, missing a 53-yard field goal late in the fourth quarter to conclude his consecutive field goals made streak at 30, the longest streak in team history.

Dez Bryant's two-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter extended his streak of games with a touchdown catch to four games to tie the third-longest streak of his career.

After rushing for 118 yards against San Francisco (9/7), 167 yards at Tennessee (9/14), 100 yards at St. Louis (9/21), and 149 yards against New Orleans (9/28), Murray's 136 yards against Houston allowed him to become the third player in NFL history - the first player in team history - to record a streak of five consecutive games to open the season with 100 rushing yards. It marked only the fourth time in league history that a player has accomplished that feat.

Murray's 670 yards through the first five games of the season are the most in team history and fifth-most in NFL history.

Jason Witten recorded 59 receiving yards in today's game to give him 10,014 for his career, becoming the second Dallas Cowboy to reach 10,000 career receiving yards (Michael Irvin), the third tight end in the league and the 41st player overall in NFL history to do so. He did it in his 180th career game to become the second-fastest tight end to reach 10,000 career receiving (Tony Gonzalez 177).
