Cowboys could use more big plays from Lance Dunbar

IRVING, Texas -- Running back Lance Dunbar averages more yards per catch (12.5 ypg) than tight end Jason Witten (11.1).  That would seem to indicate that the Cowboys need to do a little better job of getting the ball into his hands because he’s a play-maker. When play-caller Scott Linehan does want to get the ball to Dunbar, he’s done a good job of designing plays that get him the ball in space and on the move, where his combination of speed and quickness can result in a big play.

For Jason Witten, only number that matters is wins

IRVING, Texas -- Individually Jason Witten has accomplished more than anybody could have thought possible in his career. He is the Dallas Cowboys’ all-time leading receiver. The only tight end in NFL history with more catches and yards than Witten is Tony Gonzalez. He has played in nine Pro Bowls. He has the NFL record for catches in a season for a tight end with 110 in 2012. But he has one playoff win. As he approaches the final six games of the season, Witten does not much care that he is on pace for the fewest amount of catches (62) and yards (690) since his rookie season.

Dallas Cowboys' offensive snaps

LONDON – Perhaps Jean-Jacques Taylor put the whammy on Jason Witten last week when he pointed out the Dallas Cowboys tight end was the only non-quarterback skill player to play every snap in 2014 through nine weeks. Witten got some rest late in the Cowboys’ 31-17 win against the Jacksonville Jaguars, playing 57 of the 60 offensive snaps. The Cowboys also got some rest for DeMarco Murray (36 snaps), Dez Bryant (44) – although some of that came when Bryant needed an IV – and Tony Romo (52).

Randle turns attention back to his performance

LONDON -- It has been a rough few weeks for Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle, who was arrested for shoplifting last month. A couple of weeks after the arrest, a video from the Frisco, Texas, police station was released that showed Randle making disparaging remarks about teammates Dez Bryant and Josh Brent, which led to Jason Witten admonishing him for a practice argument with Bryant. Those incidents took attention away from his performance on the field, which had been good.

Jason Witten serves as coach Jason Garrett's security blanket

LONDON -- The Dallas Cowboys have had 625 plays on offense this season. Tight end Jason Witten has been on the field for every one of them. He’s the only skill-position player in the NFL who can say that, which is remarkable considering the 6-foot-5, 265-pound tight end is blocking more than ever in his 12th season. "I’ve got a lot of stories through the years about Witten and the friction that happens when you put a personnel group on the field and he’s not part of it," coach Jason Garrett said.

Jason Witten's tackles made a difference

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Jason Witten had two tackles in Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals. That was the same amount of tackles as defensive regulars Orlando Scandrick, Henry Melton and George Selvie on the official stat sheet. That was one more than starters Tyrone Crawford and Jeremy Mincey. Witten was a standout linebacker in high school, but it's not a good thing for him to have that many tackles. "He just makes plays," owner and general manager Jerry Jones said.
