Here are a few Cowboys post game notables to chew on

Today's win gave Dallas its 400th win (including playoffs) since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. The Cowboys become only the second NFL team since the merger to reach 400 wins. The Pittsburgh Steelers (404) were the first to claim 400 when they beat Denver on Nov. 9 2009.

With Arian Foster finishing with 106 rushing yards, the Dallas Cowboys defense gave up a 100-yard rusher for the first time since Le'Ron McClain went for 139 and Willis McGahee had 108 against Baltimore
(12/20/08). Dallas' streak of 18 games without yielding a 100-yard rusher was the longest active streak in the league.

Felix Jones' 43 rushing yards tonight gave him 1,039 for his career to become the 22nd Dallas Cowboy to top 1,000 career rushing yards. He also passed Scott Laidlaw for 22nd on the team's all-time rushing yards list. 

Danny McCray intercepted his first career pass with his fourth quarter
theft of Matt Schaub.

With his two touchdown passes today, Tony Romo extended his streak of
consecutive games with a touchdown pass to 15.

Consecutive games

Player                                TD Pass
Tony Romo (2006-07).............. 17
Troy Aikman (1993-94)............. 16
Tony Romo (2009-10).............   15

DeMarcus Ware finished today's game with 3.0 sacks to tie his career
high (five other times). It also marked the 14th multiple sack game of
his career. He is now tied with Randy White for the third-most
multi-sack games in club history since sacks became an official


Player                  Games
Greg Ellis................ 19
Jim Jeffcoat............ 19
Randy White............ 14
DeMarcus Ware....... 14

Ware now has 68.5 career sacks, including the three on third down
in the Houston game. Twenty-nine have come on third down.

Roy Williams finished the game with two touchdown catches - his second
as a Dallas Cowboy (at N.Y. Giants, 12/6/09) and the eighth of his

Williams' 63-yard touchdown catch today was the third-longest of his
career behind a 91-yard catch (at Philadelphia, 9/23/07) and a 66-yard
catch at Tampa Bay (9/13/09) - both touchdowns.

Williams had 117 receiving yards, his most receiving yards since
going for 204 while with Detroit at Philadelphia (9/23/07). It was also
his second 100-yard outing as a Dallas Cowboy.
