Streaks to watch for tonight

It's only week 2, but a couple of streaks and milestones are at steak for the Cowboys. Some notables to watch for tonight:

* With a win, the Cowboys can improve to 2-0 in consecutive seasons for the first time since 1994 and 1995.
* A win tonight will also improve the club's league record of Monday night wins to 41.
* With seven carries tonight, Marion Barber will become the 11th club running back to reach 500 career carries.
* If Barber rushes for 17 yards tonight, he will move past Roger Staubach (2,264) for 10th in team record books.
* With a rushing score tonight, Barber will have 32 for his career, allowing him to take sole possession of fifth place in franchise history.
* Tony Romo is 14 attempts behind Quincy Carter (902) for seventh on the club's all-time passing attempts list.
* Terrell Owens will break a tie with Cris Carter (130) for sole possession of second place on the NFL's all-time touchdown receptions list with a touchdown tonight.
* Owens can also tie Doug Cosbie (30) for the eighth-most receiving touchdowns in team record books.
* With 42 receiving yards tonight, Owens will move past Andre Reed (13,198) for eighth on the NFL's all-time receiving yards list.
* Jason Witten can add his 22nd career touchdown reception tonight, tying him with Jay Novacek for 10th in club history. He would only trail Bill Joe DuPree (41) and Cosbie (30) for the top spot among club tight ends.
