Jason Witten produces in passing game

PHILADELPHIA -- For as well as Jason Witten has blocked this season, the nine-time Pro Bowl tight end wants people to remember that he can still be a major part of the Dallas Cowboys' passing game. Dez Bryant and Tony Romo were the stars of the Cowboys passing game in the 38-27 win against the Philadelphia Eagles, but Witten played a major part with a season-high seven catches for 69 yards. When the Cowboys lost to the Eagles on Thanksgiving, Witten caught one pass for 8 yards.

Jason Witten posts season-high seven catches - Jason Witten (TE) Dallas Cowboys

Jason Witten caught seven passes for 69 yards in Sunday night's Week 15 win over the Eagles.

Cowboys make Jason Witten a non-factor

IRVING, Texas -- In his first 21 games against the Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten posted 125 catches for 1,416 yards with seven touchdowns. He had five games with more than 100 yards against the Eagles. Then how does he get limited to one catch for 8 yards in the Cowboys’ 33-10 loss to the Eagles on Thanksgiving? “I just think for whatever reason we couldn’t capitalize on it,” Witten said. “There wasn’t a lot of opportunities and that’s a part of it.

Jason Witten: Sideline shouting no big deal

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Believe it or not, Dez Bryant isn’t the only Pro Bowl pass catcher on the Dallas Cowboys who occasionally engages in animated discussions on the sidelines. The Fox cameras caught Jason Witten in an animated conversation with tight ends coach Mike Pope on the sideline after the Cowboys’ touchdown drive in Thursday’s loss to the Eagles. Actually, the cameras never showed Pope say a word. The conversation shown to the national television audience consisted of Witten hollering at his position coach.

Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten explains sideline outburst

ARLINGTON — Jason Witten didn’t have his typical impact on the passing game during Thursday’s 33-10 loss to Philadelphia. The Dallas Cowboys tight end finished with only one reception for 8 yards, his lowest total since Sept. 2012. Was Witten …

Jason Witten: "We Had The Poise To Go Do It"

The future Hall Of Fame tight end sees a different Cowboys team this season, and he credits that difference as being the impetus for Sunday night's critical victory over the Giants. From my point of view, one of the best things about being on the front page here at Blogging The Boys is the opportunity to interact with members of the community via Twitter. We have some of the most knowledgeable fans in the game and I enjoy the chance to discuss the team with our readers. It is thanks to such a conversation that I owe credit for this post. @TomRyleBTB @BTB_Macelli @BloggingTheBoys That takes...

Jason Witten's TD has special meaning

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- When Jason Witten caught 4-yard shovel pass from Tony Romo for the Dallas Cowboys’ first touchdown on Sunday, he could not help but think of his family. It grew by one last Friday night. Hadley Grace Witten checked into this world on Friday, joining brothers C.J and Cooper and sister Landry and mom Michelle. The football will soon be tucked near Hadley’s crib as a memento. “Obviously there’s a lot of emotion there being born late Friday night and then playing Sunday and being gone,” Witten said.

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.
