Game-Day Notebook


  • The Cowboys were shut out at halftime for the first time since the 2010 opener with the Redskins, who led 10-0 at the break and eventually won 13-7. * DeMarcus Ware set a new career-high with four sacks against the Eagles Sunday night, giving him 12 through seven games, the most by any Cowboys player in the first seven games of the season. Ware surpassed his own mark of nine sacks in the first seven games of 2008, when he eventually had 20 sacks. * Ware's four sacks tie him with Ed "Too Tall" Jones (1987) and Charles Haley (1994) for the second-most in a single game. The Cowboys' record is five, set by Jim Jeffcoat in 1985. * Ware now has eight career games with three or more sacks and by surpassing 10 sacks for the year, it marks the sixth straight year in which Ware has reached double-digits in sacks. * Jason Witten has already reached the 40-catch plateau for the eight-straight year. That ties him with Frank Wycheck for fourth place for tight ends with 40-catch seasons, trailing only Tony Gonzalez (13), Shannon Sharpe (11) and Jeremy Shockey (nine). * With 35 passing attempts on Sunday, Tony Romo now has 2,322 for his career, moving him into fourth place on the club's all-time list, ahead of Don Meredith (2,308). * Laurent Robinson had a team-high 103 receiving yards for his second 100-yard game with the Cowboys and just the third in his four-year career. His 70-yard touchdown was the second-longest reception of his career, only behind a 74-yard reception as a rookie in 2007 with the Falcons. * Dan Bailey recorded his first two career punts, filling in for injured punter Mat McBriar (left foot). Bailey had a gross average of 39.5 and a 37.0 net average.
