Gameday Notebook


  • The three interceptions against Seattle Sunday was the first three-pick game of the year. The Cowboys had three in last year's season finale in Philly. * Before leaving the game with a hamstring injury, Miles Austin went to 3,118 career receiving yards, surpassing Kelvin Martin (3,083) for 14th in club history. * Three more field goals by Dan Bailey upped his streak to 19 consecutive field goals, now the third-longest streak in club history. His kicking coach, Chris Boniol, has the top two records with streaks of 26 and 27. * Jason Hatcher's interception was the first by a Cowboys defensive lineman since Greg Ellis in 2002. * With his second 100-yard game of the season, DeMarco Murray became the first Cowboys back with multiple 100-yard rushing efforts in a single-season since Julius Jones had three in 2004. The Cowboys' rookie record for 100-yard games in a season is four, set by Duane Thomas in 1970. Calvin Hill, Emmitt Smith and Jones all had three, while Don Perkins, Tony Dorsett and Herschel Walker also had two. * With 466 yards over the last three games, Murray tied Eric Dickerson for the fifth-highest total all-time by an NFL rookie during a three-game span. The record is 577 set by Mike Anderson of the Broncos in 2000. * The 466 yards is the most by any Cowboys player in a three-game span, surpassing 446 yards by Emmitt Smith during his MVP season of 1993. * Terence Newman now has 30 career interceptions, moving past Cliff Harris into eighth place in Cowboys history. * Laurent Robinson caught touchdowns in consecutive games for the first time in his career. * With 19 completions, Tony Romo now has 1,500 for his career, becoming the fourth quarterback in franchise history to reach that milestone, joining Roger Staubach, Danny White and Troy Aikman. * Jason Witten became the seventh Cowboys player with at least 40 touchdown catches. * With four catches, Jason Witten has 661, one behind Ozzie Newsome (662) for third place in NFL history among all tight ends.
