Game-day Notebook

It was the team's first overtime loss since the 2008 season, when they fell in the extra frame to the Cardinals after Arizona blocked a punt and recovered it in the end zone. * The three overtime games in one season ties a franchise mark set in 2000, when the Cowboys were 1-2 in overtime games. * The Cowboys had four first half sacks Sunday. It was the 11th time in team history the team had four-or-more first half sacks and the first since racking up five against Baltimore (12/20/08). * Dan Bailey missed his first field goal attempt from 53 yards out. It ended his streak of consecutive field goals made at 26 to tie Chris Boniol (1995) for the second-longest in club history. * Dez Bryant caught his seventh touchdown pass of the season to eclipse his total of six from his 2010 rookie year. * Shaun Chapas made his NFL debut today on special teams and offense. He finished the game with his first career reception for nine yards. * Sean Lissemore logged his first career full sack with a second quarter takedown of Kevin Kolb. He registered a half sack as a rookie in 2010. * Mat McBriar came into today's game tied with Mike Saxon for the club record with 166 punts downed inside the 20-yard line. He finished Sunday's game with four to establish the club record at 170. * Jason Witten's five catches Sunday gave him 61 for the season – his eighth straight 60-plus catch campaign.
