Tony Romo is just 39 passing yards away from setting a new career high total passing yards per season which he set in 2007 with 4,211 yards. Romo currently has thrown just 8 interceptions. His career best came in 2006 when he threw just 13 interceptions. Another big season from the big guy!
With 1,230 receiving yards going into Sundays finale, Miles Austin has already surpassed Terrell Owens mark of 1,052 receiving yards last season. Remarkably, Austin needs just 126 yards to smash Owens’ best season with the Cowboys in 2007 when he tallied 1,355 yards. Go Miles!
Jason Witten is just 46 yards away from the second 1,000 yard season of his career. He has not fumbled the football since 2007 and has just one fumble in the last five seasons. Wow…
With seven touchdowns this season, Roy Williams needs just one touchdown to match his career high which he set back in his rookie season in 2004.
With two touchdown catches on Sunday, the Miles Austin – Roy Williams combination would have 20 on the season and become just the third Cowboys wide receiver tandem to combine for that many in a season. Terrell Owens and Patrick Crayton hold the team record with 22 in 2007. Frank Clarke and Bill Howton combined for 20 in 1962.
Running back Felix Jones currently leads the NFL in rushing yards per attempt with a 5.9 average. He has a small advantage over Tennessee’s Chris Johnson who has a 5.8 average. This one will go down to the wire. Run Felix Run!
Patrick Crayton currently sports an impressive 12.9 yards per return average on punts, easily surpassing his previous high of 9.5 which he set last season. He has also brought two of those returns back for touchdowns, the first and second of his career. He has also been a team player who quietly went about doing his job after being replaced by Miles Austin as the number two receiver. Good Guy Award!
On a side note, do you remember little Danny Amendola? Now with St. Louis, Amendola currently leads the NFL in kick returns with 61 and return yardage with 1,507 yards. I had a feeling we hadn’t heard the last of Amendola.
Bradie James needs just five tackles to set a new career high with 81 tackles to surpass last season’s total of 80. Who loves them some Bradie?
Keith Brooking needs just one more sack to set a new career high with four. The Falcons parted company with Brooking after registering no sacks last season. Their loss, our gain. He also has seven pass deflections this season, more than his previous two seasons combined. With 75 tackles already this season, he has tallied 70 or more tackles for nine straight seasons. Nicely done.
Good luck on Sunday guys!
