Game-Day Notebook

Jason Witten recorded his second straight 1,000-yard season on his final catch.

  • With three sacks Sunday, DeMarcus Ware now has 17 career multi-sack games, ranking third in club history behind Greg Ellis and Jim Jeffcoat, who both had 19. * With three defensive touchdowns in his career, DeMarcus Ware has twice scored in Philadelphia. * Jason Witten became the fourth tight end in NFL history to have three career 1,000-yard seasons. Witten tied Shannon Sharpe, Todd Christiansen and Kellen Winslow Sr. for second place behind Tony Gonzalez, who has four. * Witten also moved into a second-place tie in Cowboys history with three 1,000-yard seasons, joining Terrell Owens and Tony Hill. Michael Irvin is the club's leader with seven career 1,000-yard receiving seasons. * With Miles Austin and Jason Witten both surpassing the 1,000-yard plateau, it marked the fifth time in franchise history that two players went over 1,000 receiving yards in a season. Witten has been involved in that duo now three times. * Miles Austin became the 10th undrafted player in NFL history to record a 1,000-yard receiving season and the eighth player to do it in consecutive seasons. * With seven touchdown returns, the Cowboys tied three other seasons for the most return scores in one year, equaling the feats done in 1965, 1968 and 1983. * Of the seven touchdown returns, three came from interceptions (Sean Lee, Orlando Scandrick and Bryan McCann), three off punt returns (Dez Bryant twice and Bryan McCann once) and one fumble return (DeMarcus Ware).
