Sean Up

Jason Hatcher (97) celebrates after recovering a fumble forced by rookie LB Sean Lee.

  • With 44 catches already, Dez Bryant is tied with Antonio Bryant for the second-most catches in a season by a Cowboys rookie, but just two behind Bob Hayes (1965). * Five touchdowns scored Sunday were the most in a game since recording five against Seattle on Nov. 1, 2009. * Jason Garrett became the third interim head coach to win his first two games since 2000, joining Gary Moeller (Detroit, 2000) and Jim Haslett (St. Louis, 2008). * The 134 rushing yards Sunday was the second-most this season behind the 141 yards against the Titans. * Miles Austin's two touchdowns Sunday pushes his career total up to 19, tying with Alvin Harper and Butch Johnson for 14th place in club history. * Jon Kitna's 24 attempts Sunday upped his career pass attempts total to 4,272 and allowed him to pass Sonny Jurgensen (4,262) for 35th all-time. * In throwing for 147 yards, Kitna now has 28,466 passing yards for his career to pass Trent Green (28,475) for 41st. * Bryan McCann had a 97-yard punt return for a touchdown for the second-longest punt return and the second-longest by a rookie in club history. Dennis Morgan (98 yards at St. Louis, Oct. 13, 1974) was the longest. * Along with his 101-yard interception return last week, McCann is the second player this season with two 90-plus yard returns for touchdowns in two-or-less consecutive games - Leon Washington (N.Y. Jets) had a 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and a 101-yard kickoff return for a touchdown at Miami (9/26). McCann is the first rookie to accomplish the feat since Devin Hester had a 94-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, followed by a 96-yarder for a score on Dec. 11, 2006. * McCann's punt return for a touchdown was the third punt return score for Dallas this season (Dez Bryant - 2), which establishes a single-season team record. * Terence Newman's interception Sunday was the 25th of his career to break a tie with Chuck Howley for sole possession of ninth place in club history. * Jason Witten's four catches gave him 50 for the season - his seventh consecutive season with at least 50 catches. Witten became just the third tight end in league history with seven straight 50-plus catch seasons.
