    On a second and seven in the first quarter on Sunday, Tony Romo hit Jason Witten for five yards. The catch brought up a third and two, and was generally unremarkable in the scope of the game. But with this catch, Witten moved to ninth on the NFL's all-time receptions list for tight ends, breaking a tie with long-time Jets and Eagles stand-out Mickey Shuler.

    It was that kind of day for Dallas on Sunday.

    Tony Romo didn't throw an interception for the third straight game, the first time he's accomplished this in his career.

    Sam Hurd brought down his first touchdown catch of the season, the first time he has hit pay dirt since the opening game of the season in 2007, against New York at Texas Stadium.

    For the first time since his rookie season, Bobby Carpenter recorded a sack, when he got to Matt Hasselbeck in the second quarter, forcing a fumble.

    Narrowly missing out on a milestone of his own, Miles Austin came 39 receiving yards away from becoming the first Dallas receiver since Terrell Owens, in 2007, to record three consecutive games with at least 100 receiving yards.
