- The Cowboys have now played 11 straight games, dating back to last season, decided by four points or less. The team's record is now 5-6 in those games.
- The Patriots were seeking their 10th straight game of scoring at least 30 points. That streak ended with just 20, including only a touchdown in the second half.
- Rookie kicker Dan Bailey has now made 14 straight field goals since that short miss in San Francisco back in Week 2. That streak is the fifth-longest in club history, behind his kicking coach Chris Boniol, who has two streaks of 27 and 26, followed by Richie Cunningham (18) and Nick Folk (16).
- Tony Romo's 317 passing yards extended his club record of 300-yard passing games to 30.
- Tony Romo became the fourth quarterback in franchise history to reach 18,000 career passing yards.
- DeMarcus Ware had two sacks Sunday, giving him his 20th career multi-sack game of his career. That broke a tie with Jim Jeffcoat and Greg Ellis for first place in franchise history.
- Ware now has seven sacks in five games, a pace that would certainly challenge the NFL's single-season sack record of 23 set by Michael Strahan.
- Jason Witten recorded his 38th career touchdown catch, tying him with Terrell Owens for seventh in club history.
- Sunday's game marked the first time the Cowboys have donned their blue jerseys since December 2009 in a game at Washington, a span of 31 games, including preseason and playoffs. It will be the only time this season to wear the blues, although the Cowboys will wear their throwback jerseys against Miami on Thanksgiving.
