Gameday Notebook

The Cowboys are now 3-2 under Jason Garrett, with a pair of 30-27 losses at home.

  • The Cowboys intercepted Michael Vick two times Sunday night to give them 15 interceptions on the year. Dallas' 15 are the most since stealing 19 passes in 2007. * The 91-yard Michael Vick-to-DeSean Jackson touchdown catch-and-run was the second-longest reception allowed by the Cowboys in franchise history. The longest was a 94-yard Norm Snead-to-Rich Houston touchdown catch-and-run at the N.Y. Giants (9/24/72). * Miles Austin finished Sunday's game with two catches for 22 yards to give him 2,500 career receiving yards, the 19th Cowboys pass catcher to reach 2,500 career receiving yards. His yardage total also allowed him to pass Alvin Harper (2,486) for 19th on the Dallas Cowboys all-time receiving yards list. * Bradie James intercepted his second career pass. His first came at Tennessee on Oct. 1, 2006 when he returned Vince Young's pass for a touchdown. * Felix Jones scored his first rushing touchdown of the season on a 3-yard plunge in the third quarter. Jones has now rushed for a touchdown in three straight games against Philadelphia, four including the playoffs. Along with his 98-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the 2008 home opener, Jones has scored a touchdown in every game he has played against the Eagles. * Jon Kitna's 35 pass attempts upped his career pass attempts total to 4,375 and allowed him to pass Jake Plummer (4,350) and Norm Snead (4,353) for 31st in NFL history. * In throwing for 242 yards, Kitna now has 29,238 passing yards for his career to pass Brad Johnson (29,054) for 38th all-time. * Kitna's two touchdown passes gave him 165 for his career to pass Daryle Lamonica and Jim Plunkett and tie Troy Aikman for 55th in NFL history. * Jason Witten's team-high seven catches gave him 72 for the season - his fifth career season with at least 70 catches. Witten tied Antonio Gates and Shannon Sharpe for the second-most 70 catch seasons by a tight end in league history. * For the second time in his career, Witten had two touchdown catches in one game. The other was against Philadelphia on Nov. 15, 2004. Witten has six touchdown catches on the season tying the second-most touchdown catches in a season in his career. He also had six in 2004 and 2005. His single-season high is seven (2007). * Witten's 33 career receiving touchdowns broke a tie with Lance Rentzel for sole possession of eighth place in Cowboys history. He trails Billy Joe DuPree (41) for tops among club tight ends.
