HEAD COACHES

JASON GARRETT (16-15, 2nd Year, 21-18 overall)

MIKE SHANAHAN (174-130, 17th Year, 20-27 - WAS.)

Jason Garrett was named the eighth head coach in Dallas Cowboys history on January 5, 2011. Garrett became the first former Dallas Cowboys player to become the team’s head coach. As a backup quarterback during his playing career in Dallas, he started nine-of-23 games played and was a member of teams that won six division titles and three Super Bowl championships. Garrett was elevated to the Cowboys top job after taking over as the team’s interim head coach at the midway through 2010. he guided the club to a 5-3 mark to finish the season after the team started 1-7. During his time as the interim head coach, three of Dallas’ wins were against teams that posted a 10-win season, while the three losses were decided by a combined total of seven points. he led Dallas to an 8-8 record, narrowly missing the playoffs and an NFC East Division title in his first full season as head coach in 2011. Since the 2007 season, Garrett has been the Cowboys offensive coordinator, and in 2008, he was assigned the additional duties of being the club’s assistant head coach. Under Garrett, the Dallas offense has reached high levels of productivity in several categories, and the unit has finished among the NFL’s top-10 in total offense in three of his four years: 2010 (10th), 2009 (2nd), and 2007 (2nd). From the start of the 2007 season, the club has averaged 24.6 points-per-game and 368.5 total yards-per-outing. The team has set single-season records in a handful of categories, including topping 6,000 net yards for the first times in franchise history (2009 - 6,390 and 2011 6,008). Garrett returned to Dallas in 2007 as the offensive coordinator. he entered the coaching profession as the quarterbacks coach for two seasons (200506) for Nick Saban’s first Miami Dolphins club.

Mike Shanahan became the 28th head coach in Redskins history, replacing Jim Zorn on Jan. 6, 2010. Shanahan joined Washington after spending 14 seasons as the head coach of the Denver Broncos, leading the team to back-to-back Super Bowl championships in 1997 and 1998. he is one of 12 head coaches in league history to guide a team to a pair of Super Bowl victories, and he is one of just six head coaches to accomplish the feat in consecutive years. During his NFL career, he has been a part of teams that have played in 10 conference championship games and six Super Bowls. In 32 seasons as a pro and college coach, Shanahan’s teams have participated in postseason or bowl games 22 times. Under his guidance, Denver set then-NFL records by posting the most victories over a two-year (33, 199798) and three-year (46, 1996-98) span. In 17 years, (14 with Denver and three as offensive coordinator in San Francisco), Shanahan’s offenses have finished first in the league four times, second three times and third twice. he was an assistant with Denver (1984-87, 1989-91) and San Francisco (1992-94). he returned to Denver as quarterbacks coach on oct. 6, 1989 after posting an 8-12 record as the Los Angeles Raiders head coach. Prior to reaching the NFL ranks, Shanahan coached collegiately at oklahoma (1975-76), Northern Arizona (1977), Eastern Illinois (1978), Minnesota (1979) and Florida (1980-83). he was a wishbone quarterback and defensive back at Eastern Illinois.

With a 17-10 halftime deficit, Romo came out of the intermission and went 10-of10 for 169 yards with three touchdowns. It was the second time in his career he completed 100% of his second half passes. The first time was at Arizona (11/12/06) where he went 10-of-10 for 144 yards with one touchdown. In recent history of the organization, only Randall Cunningham (at Arizona, 9/10/00) completed all of his passes through one half. It was in the first half of the 31-32 loss where he completed all 12 of his passes for 141 yards and two touchdowns. Besides the three flawless halfs mentioned above, there have been nine times in recent team history that a quarterback completed all but one pass (10-or-more attempts). The most recent was Kyle orton (nine-of-10) against Chicago (10/1/12). Romo accomplished the feat three times and Troy Aikman did it five times.

QUICK WITT-ED

Jason Witten has steadily climbed Dallas’ all-time receiving yards charts. In 2008 he became the sixth player in Cowboys history to reach 4,000 career receiving yards. he topped the 5,000yard barrier in the 2009 opener, the sixth pass catcher in club history to reach that mark. Later that same season, he passed Frank Clarke (5,247) for fifth on Dallas’ all-time receiving yards chart. Two weeks into 2010, Witten became the fifth Cowboy to top 6,000 career yards. he opened 2011 with 110 yards at the N.y. Jets (9/11) to become the fifth Cowboy to reach 7,000. his 94-yard outing against Detroit (10/2) put him past Bob hayes (7,295) for fourth all-time in club history. he took third from Drew Pearson with four catches for 24 yards against Philadelphia (12/24). In 2012 Witten topped 8,000 yards with his 112-yard game against Chicago (10/1). he also passed Tony hill in the Bears game:

Since entering the league in 2003, Jason Witten has proven his skills as an offensive weapon. he has provided Dallas with the full package at tight end. After nine-plus seasons, Witten has caught 799 passes for 8,892 yards and 43 touchdowns. he is the third all-time leading tight end in career receptions and receiving yards. To open the 2011 season, Witten rattled off 110 yards - his 13th career 100-yard outing to become the seventh tight end in league history to reach 7,000 receiving yards. his work through the 2011 season allowed him to crack the top-five on the tight end receiving yards list. Witten opened the 2012 season at the N.y. Giants (9/5) with two catches for 10 yards to pass Jackie Smith (7,918) for fourth on the list. Despite being held to just two catches for eight yards against Tampa Bay (9/23), Witten moved into third alltime. he then crossed the 8,000-yard mark against Chicago (10/1) with his 15th career 100-yard game. By mid-November last season, Witten passed Newsome (662) for third on the all-time receptions list. With four catches at Seattle (9/16) this season, he became the third tight end in league history with 700 career catches.

THAT’S A BUNCH OF WITT

After coming into the league as Dallas’ third round draft pick in 2003, Jason Witten has strung together a hall of Fame career. he has appeared in the most Pro Bowls by a Cowboys tight end (seven consecutive - 2004-10), and tops the club’s all-time receptions chart and is second on the receiving yards chart. Proving himself as a reliable target, Witten has 788 career receptions for 8,789 yards. he took the top spot on the receptions chart from Michael Irvin at Atlanta (11/4) after a seven-catch, 51-yard game. Witten took 151 games to reach the top of the team’s receptions chart which was faster than Irvin (159). When compared to the two other NFL tight ends with at least 750 catches - Tony Gonzalez and Shannon Sharpe - Witten also reached the mark faster - Gonzalez (163 games, Sharpe (169). A favorite target of Tony Romo, Witten accounts for 493 catches and 5,594 yards of Romo’s 1,976 completions and 24,494 yards. Both of Witten’s numbers are more than any other player that has caught a pass from Romo. Witten caught 13 passes for 112 yards - both team highs - and a score - against Chicago (10/1). his 13 catches were third in his career, tied for third among any Cowboys pass catcher and tied for eighth by an NFL tight end. he then bettered that with a clubrecord 18-catch game against the N.y. Giants (10/28). his 18 receptions tied for third in a game in NFL history and were the most by a tight end in league history:

In 2008 Witten became the fifth pass catcher in team history to top 400 receptions. Four weeks into 2009, he became the fifth to reach 450. he jumped past Tony hill (fifth in club annals) and Emmitt Smith (fourth) also in 2009. he took second from Drew Pearson near the end of the 2009 season with his 14 catches at the N.y. Giants (12/6) - the second-most of his career. he became the second Dallas pass catcher to reach 700 receptions in Week 2 of 2012. After hauling in a club-record 18 passes against the N.y. Giants (10/28), Witten added seven more at Atlanta (11/4) to pass Michael Irvin for the top spot on Dallas’ all-time receptions chart: All-Time Cowboys Receptions List 1.

DEZ-ZLING PERFORMANCES

With the selection of Dez Bryant in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft, the Dallas Cowboys added to their lineage of homegrown talent at wide receiver. Bryant was issued the jersey number 88 to follow in the footsteps of two of the previous 88s in club history - Drew Pearson (1973-83) and Michael Irvin (1988-99). his progress as a rookie was slowed after landing on IR with an ankle injury suffered at Indianapolis (12/5/10). he returned to open the 2011 season in style, and finished his second pro season with 63 catches for 928 yards and nine touchdowns. In 2012 Bryant notched his second career 100-yard game with a career-high 105 yards against Chicago (10/1). At Baltimore (10/14) Bryant had a career-best 13 receptions which also tied the third-most receptions in a game in franchise history. Bryant bettered his career-best with a 110-yard performance against the N.y. Giants (10/28). he then added 12 catches for a new career-best 145 yards against Cleveland (11/18) and tied that same yardage total on eight catches against Washington (11/22). Bryant upped his career-best once more with a 224-yard game against New orleans (12/23). he did it on nine catches with a pair of touchdowns. his 224 yards were the 10th 200-yard game in franchise history and were the fourth-most yards in a game in team history. Below is a comparison between the Cowboys 88s after 42 games: GP Rec Yds Avg TD Drew Pearson ..........42 159 2,721 17.1 17 Michael Irvin ..............42 171 2,968 17.4 20 Dez Bryant ..............42 196 2,800 14.3 27

Through 15 games of the 2012 season, Dez Bryant already has career-highs in receptions (88), receiving yards (1,311) and touchdown receptions (12). From Weeks 8 through 13, Bryant opened the flood gates of offensive production. over that span, Bryant led the league with six touchdown catches, was third with 475 yards and seventh with 29 catches. he logged three 100-yard games, including back-to-back 145-yard efforts against Cleveland (11/18) and against Washington (11/22). Coming into Week 17, Bryant has a club-record tying streak of seven consecutive games with a touchdown. on Thanksgiving Day against Washington, Bryant had a pair of touchdown catches. The next week against Philadelphia (12/2), Bryant added another two touchdown catches marking the sixth time in team history a pass catcher had back-to-back multi-touchdown games, and Bryant is the fifth different Cowboys pass catcher to accomplish the feat: Player Frank Clarke Frank Clarke Tony hill Terrell owens Miles Austin Dez Bryant

Bryant had another multiple-touchdown game with two against New orleans (12/23). his two touchdown catches came on consecutive drives, both from 58 yards. With his back-to-back 58-yard touchdown grabs, Bryant became the first league pass catcher with 55-plus yard touchdown grabs on consecutive drives since Buffalo’s Lee Evans (at houston, 11/19/06) did it with back-toback 83-yard scoring snags. Bryant’s two touchdown catches against the Saints was his fourth multi-touchdown game of the season, sixth of his career. Bryant’s four this season are a single-season club best, while his six career are tied for sixth:

GOING STREAKING

Dez Bryant hauled in two more touchdown passes in the game against New orleans (12/23) to give him a scoring grab in seven straight games. his seven-game scoring bonanza is tied for the longest streak in club history. he is one of only two Cowboys (Terrell owens) with the seven-game scoring streak in one season, as two others did it spanning two: Consecutive Games Receiving TD Player Games Year Player Games Year Frank Clarke ......7 1961-62 Terrell owens ....7 2007 Bob hayes ........7 1965-66 Dez Bryant ........7 2012

A GRAND FOR DEZ

With four catches for 50 yards and a touchdown at Cincinnati (12/9), Dez Bryant topped 1,000 yards on the season for the first time in his career. Bryant was the first 1,000-yard receiver since Miles Austin and Jason Witten in 2009, Bryant’s 1,000-yard season was the 28th in franchise history, and he was the 12th different Cowboy to top 1,000 yards in a season. his current yardage total of 1,311 is seventh in a season in club history:

A GRAND OLE TIME

Dez Bryant reached 1,000 yards for the season in the win at Cincinnati (12/9). Trailing not too far behind Bryant are Jason Witten (983) and Miles Austin (943). If one of those two can reach 1,000 yards, it will mark the sixth time in franchise history a Cowboys team had two pass catchers top 1,000 yards, and the third time in the last four seasons:

Five times this season Dez Bryant reached a career-high for single-game receiving yards. he first did it against Chicago (10/1) with 105 yards, then against the N.y. Giants (10/28) with 110, followed by 145-yard games against Cleveland (11/18) and Washington (145). he topped the charts this season with a 224yard game against New orleans (12/23). Bryant’s 200-yard performance was the eighth this season by an NFL pass catcher, the 10th in team history, and was good for the fourth-most yards in franchise history: Dallas Cowboys 200-yard Player Opp (Date) Miles Austin @KC (10/11/09) Bob hayes @Was (11/13/66) Frank Clarke Was (9/16/62) Dez Bryant NO (12/23/12) Lance Rentzel Was (11/19/67) Tony hill Phi (11/12/79) Terrell owens SF (11/23/08) Michael Irvin Pho (9/20/92) James Dixon @Pho (11/12/89) Kevin Williams @Ari (12/25/95)

If both Witten and Austin join Bryant with 1,000-plus yards, it would be the first time in team history and the sixth time in NFL history a club had three pass catchers reach 1,000 yards in the same season: Players (Team) Year J.

Dez Bryant leads the Dallas Cowboys and is eighth in the league with 1,311 yards. Five times this season Bryant topped 100 yards in a game, and each time bettered his single-game career-high for receiving yards. Each one of Dez’ career-best performances came in the confines of Cowboys Stadium. of his 1,311 yards, Bryant has 948 at home which is second behind Andre Johnson (975) for home receiving yards. Bryant averaged 118.5 yards-per-home game - 11th all-time in NFL history, seventh since the NFL went to a 16-game schedule and tops in franchise history. Bryant out-shined his Cowboys competition as the next best single-season yard-per-home game average was 103.2 - Lance Rentzel (1967). Bryant is only the third Dallas Cowboy to have averaged more than 100 yards-per-home game in franchise history: Single-Season Yards/Home Game (Cowboys) Player Season Yds/Game Yds Games Dez Bryant 2012 118.5 948 8 Lance Rentzel 1967 103.2 619 6 Michael Irvin 1995 101.6 813 8 Bob hayes 1965 99.0 693 7 Michael Irvin 1992 97.0 776 8 Single-Season Yards/Home Game (NFL since 1978) Player (Team) Season Yds/Game Yds Games Andre Johnson (hou) 2008 136.1 1,089 8 Terrell owens (SF) 2000 134.3 806 6 Isaac Bruce (StL) 1995 127.6 1,021 8 Calvin Johnson (Det) 2012 127.1 890 7 Marvin harrison (Ind) 2001 123.3 986 8 Andre Johnson (hou) 2012 121.9 975 8 Dez Bryant (Dal) 2012 118.5 948 8

MILES OF MILES

Miles Austin notched the first 100-yard receiving game of the 2012 season for Dallas with his 107-yard performance in the home opener against Tampa Bay (9/23). It was then the 12th-most yards in his career and his 13th career 100-yard outing. he again topped 100 yards with 133 against the N.y. Giants (10/28) for the ninth-most yards in his career.

In DeMarco Murray’s absence over the previous four games with a foot injury, Felix Jones took the reigns of the Cowboys running backfield. over the course of four games, Jones racked up enough receiving yards to reach 1,000 for his career. he reached that mark with three catches for 22 yards and a touchdown at Philadelphia (11/11). In reaching 1,000 receiving yards, coupled with his 2,604 career rushing yards at that point, Jones became the eighth Dallas Cowboy to top 2,500 rushing yards and 1,000 receiving yards: Dallas Cowboys 1,000/2,500 Club Player (Years) Rush Yds Pass Yds Don Perkins (1961-68)..............6,217 1,310 Walt Garrison (1966-74)............3,886 1,794 Calvin hill (1969-74) ................5,009 1,359 Tony Dorsett (1977-87) ..........12,036 3,432 herschel Walker (1986-97) ......3,491 2,556 Emmitt Smith (1990-02) ..........17,162 3,012 Marion Barber (2005-10) ..........4,358 1,280 Felix Jones (2008-12)..............2,704 1,062

GAME-WINNING KICKS

In his rookie season, Dan Bailey was called upon six times to win or tie the game with his foot. Four times he came through for Dallas. Bailey’s four game-winning field goals were the most by a Dallas Cowboy in a single season and the most by a rookie in NFL history. In 2012 Bailey has had four opportunities to do the same, and he came through with 0:02 left in the fourth quarter against Cleveland (11/18) to send the game in overtime, then sealed it with a 38-yard kick with 6:07 remaining in the extra period. The second was at Cincinnati when he hit a 40-yarder as time expire and the third was against Pittsburgh (12/16) with a 21-yarder in overtime. In team history, there have now been 35 instances in which a kicker was true on a game-winning field goal with 2:00-or-less left in the fourth quarter or in overtime. Bailey has rang true with seven game-winners to tie Rafael Septien for the most in team history:

It was also the second-most by a rookie in league history:

BAILEY’S BOOTS

DEMARC-ING HIS TERRITORY

Since coming into the league as Dallas’ first draft pick in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft (11th overall), DeMarcus Ware has led or tied for the team lead in sacks each of his seven years in the league - the first Cowboy to pace the team in sacks through each of his first seven seasons. he has put together six straight seasons of 10-or-more sacks to become the first Dallas defender to accomplish that feat. he is the only defender in the league to reach at least 10 sacks through each of the past six seasons. In 2008 Ware established an official club sack record with a league-leading 20.0 sacks. he followed that up with a 2009 season where he finished with 11.0 sacks. Ware closed out the 2010 season at Philadelphia (1/2/11) with a career-high tying 3.0 sacks to give him 15.5 for the season. It marked his seventh career three-sack game and his 17th career multi-sack game. Ware’s 15.5 sacks in 2010 led the league for the second time in his career. he opened 2011 with his 18th career multi-sack game with two takedowns at the N.y. Jets (9/11). By season’s end, he added five more games with multiple sacks, including a single-game personal-high with four sacks of Michael Vick at Philadelphia (10/30). Ware finished the season with 19.5 sacks - the second-most in his career and in team history - to push his career total to 99.5. he notched multiple sacks in the opener with two at the N.y. Giants (9/5) to open 2012, then added two more against Tampa Bay (9/23). he notched one against Chicago (10/1), one at Baltimore (10/14), a half at Carolina (10/21), one against the N.y. Giants (10/28) and 1.5 at Atlanta (11/4), 0.5 at Philadelphia (11/11), Cleveland (11/18), one at Cincinnati (12/9) and 0.5 against Pittsburgh (12/16) for 111.0 career sacks:

Thus far in 2012, Dan Bailey has rang true on 28-of-30 field goal tries (93.3%). For his career, Bailey has converted 60-of-67 tries (89.6%). Through his two pro seasons, Bailey’s 60 field goals made are tied with Billy Cundiff (2002-05) for seventh all-time in franchise history. Along the way, Bailey has 10 games with three-or-more field goals made - tied for third in franchise history. This season, Bailey has connected on three-or-more field goals five times - against Tampa Bay (9/23), at Baltimore (10/14), at Carolina (10/21), against Cleveland (11/18) and against Washington (11/22). Additionally, he has two games with four-plus field goals made, tied for the fourth-most in team history: Games with 3+ FGs Made Players Games Rafael Septien ..........21 Richie Cunningham ..11 Chris Boniol ..............10 Dan Bailey ...............10 Eddie Murray ..............7 Toni Fritsch .................7

Bailey has also hit all 75 PAT tries - 11th in franchise history. In both games against the Eagles, Bailey converted five PAT attempts, tying the most in his career and tie for 23rd in franchise history.

O.T. AGAIN

NFC NFC NFC NFC NFC

The Dallas Cowboys played their first overtime game of 2012 against Cleveland (11/18) after battling through three overtime games in 2011. As Dan Bailey hit the 38-yard game winner with 6:07 remaining in the extra frame, the Cowboys upped their overtime record to 18-13, including a 5-4 mark at home. The Cleveland game was the first overtime game in Cowboys Stadium history and the first at home for Dallas since a 24-21 loss to Denver at Texas Stadium. Dallas then battled Pittsburgh (12/16) to overtime and again came out with a win for a 19-13 overall, 6-4 at home, overtime mark. For the third time in franchise history, the Cowboys had three overtime games in a season, after fighting back from a 14-point deficit to tie the game against New orleans (12/23). Dallas was unable to hold on, falling 34-31. This season marked the first in franchise history a Dallas team had multiple home overtime games. Following the loss to the Saints, Dallas has a 19-14 overtime record, 6-5 at home. After winning a pair of overtime games in 2011, Dallas’ two oT wins this season mark the second time in club history the team won multiple overtime games. From 2009-11, Dallas won four straight oT games despite losing the toss to begin overtime. The club’s overtime record when losing the toss had improved to 8-6 with the two wins, but that streak was snapped with the loss at Arizona to give Dallas a 8-7 record when losing the toss. Dallas lost the toss to the Steelers in 2012 for a 10-7 record when losing the toss.

B-WARE OF D-WARE

WARE HE STANDS

Now in his eighth pro season, DeMarcus Ware has racked up an impressive sack figure. Through Week 15 of the 2012 season, Ware has 111.0 career quarterback takedowns. After adding 1.5 in Atlanta (11/4), Ware moved past Pat Swilling (107.5) for 19th on the NFL’s all-time sack list. Ware had a half sack at Philadelphia (11/1) and another half against Cleveland (11/18) to tie Greg Townsend for 18th all-time. he passed Townsend when he had a sack at Cincinnati (12/9):

DeMarcus Ware exploded in 2008, leading the league with a club-record 20.0 sacks. he was rewarded on oct. 26, 2009 by signing a six-year contract extension. he opened 2008 with at least one sack in each of the first seven games. Along with his streak of three consecutive games with a sack to close 2007, Ware tied Simon Fletcher (Denver) for the league record with a sack in 10 consecutive games. Ware’s record-tying effort came after tying his single-game career-high with three sacks at St. Louis (10/19/08). his streak ended the next week against Tampa Bay (10/26/08) as he was held without a sack.

When DeMarcus Ware missed the first start of his career at New orleans (12/19/09) after suffering a neck injury the previous week, he saw time as a reserve in the Saturday night win over the previously undefeated Saints. Credited with sealing the game for Dallas with his second sack/fumble of the contest, Ware emerged as the Dallas Cowboys forced fumble leader (since 1994) with 23 for his career. he snapped a tie with Greg Ellis that night. Since then, Ware has forced nine more fumbles. For his career, Ware has 32 forced fumbles with 26 of them coming off quarterback sacks. Thus far in 2012, Ware has five forced fumbles to make six seasons with three-or-more forced fumbles for the linebacker. his six seasons of three-plus forced fumbles is tied for 13th in NFL history, ranks as the fifth-highest figure in league history and is tops in franchise history. Ellis is second with four seasons of three-ormore forced fumbles.

Ware also owns four of the top-five spots for sacks in a season by a Dallas linebacker in club history and for any defensive player:

LEAD SACKER

Since his entrance in the league in 2005, no other defensive player in the league has been as effective at taking down opposing quarterbacks as DeMarcus Ware. Ware reached the top of the club’s all-time sack chart (since 1982 when sacks became official) with his sack at Arizona (12/4/11), to pass Jim Jeffcoat. Since then, he has only added to that number, posting 11.5 in 15 games this season to give him 111.0 career sacks:

Ware has seven consecutive seasons (2006-12) with 10-or-more sacks, becoming the first Cowboys player to accomplish this feat since sacks became an official statistic in 1982. he is also the only player in the league to reach 10 sacks over the past seven seasons.

Ware opened the 2012 season with a pair of sacks, giving him multiple sack season openers for the second consecutive season. he extended his streak of consecutive games with a sack to four - the seventh such streak of his career. After 15 weeks of NFL action, Ware is tied for seventh in the league with 11.5 sacks after finishing 2011 second: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

Since entering the league in 2005 as the Dallas Cowboys first first round pick of the NFL Draft, no other league defender has racked up as many sacks as DeMarcus Ware’s 111.0. Below is an inside look at when each of Ware’s 111.0 sacks has occurred: By Day By Down Day Sacks Down Sacks Wednesday ....................2.0 1st Down ......................34.0 Thursday ........................6.0 2nd Down ....................35.0 Saturday ......................12.5 3rd Down ......................40.0 Sunday ........................83.0 4th Down ........................2.0 Monday ..........................6.5 By Quarter Wins/Loss Quarter Sacks Outcome Sacks 1st Quarter ..................27.0 Win ..............................63.0 2nd Quarter ..................32.5 Loss ..............................48.0 3rd Quarter ..................23.0 In-game 4th Quarter ..................28.5 When Sacks By Month Winning ........................43.0 Month Sacks Losing ..........................42.5 September ....................22.0 Tied ..............................25.5 october ........................33.0 Redzone November ....................21.5 Defensive ......................8.0 December ....................29.0 offensive ......................10.5 January ..........................5.5

Dallas’ game against Detroit (10/2/11) leading into the bye was DeMarcus Ware’s 100th career game played. he brought a sixgame sack streak into his milestone game but was unable to extend it as he was held without a quarterback takedown for the first time this season. Through his first 100 professional games, Ware racked up 85.0 sacks - the second-most sacks through a player’s first 100 career games in NFL history: Sacks Through First 100 Games Player Reggie White ..................105.0 DeMarcus Ware ..............85.0 Bruce Smith ......................84.5 Derrick Thomas ................81.5 Leslie o’Neal ....................80.5

SACK ATTACK

Ware opened the 2012 season with a pair of sacks at the N.y. Giants (9/5) and did it again in the home opener against Tampa Bay (9/23) to extend his club record of multiple-sack games to 25. he had his 26th career multi-sack game with 1.5 at Atlanta (11/4):

With three sacks in the 2010 season finale at Philadelphia (1/2/11), DeMarcus Ware led the league with 15.5 sacks. It was the second time in his career to lead the league in sacks. his first was in 2008 when he finished with 20.0. Ware became just the fifth league defender to have led the league in sacks in two different seasons:

SACK ATTACK, PART II

After posting six straight double-digit sack seasons (2006-11), DeMarcus Ware wasted no time getting his seventh in 2012. he reached double digits while adding his 10th with a half sack against Cleveland (11/18). With his seven consecutive 10-plus sack seasons, Ware is the only defender currently in the league with the streak. The closest league defenders are Jared Allen (five, 2007-11), James harrison (three, 2008-10) and LaMarr Woodley (three, 2008-10). Ware’s seven straight seasons of 10-or-more sacks makes him the fifth defensive player with seven consecutive seasons of 10+ sacks since sacks became official in 1982: Consecutive Player 10+ Sack Seasons Reggie White......................9 (1985-93) John Randle ......................8 (1992-99) Lawrence Taylor ................7 (1984-90) Bruce Smith........................7 (1992-98) DeMarcus Ware ................7 (2006-12)

The Dallas Cowboys closed out the 2011 season with 42 sacks to tie for seventh in the league. From 2007-2011, Dallas has racked up at least 35 sacks each season, and since the 2006 season, Dallas has posted 291 for the highest figure in the league over that span: NFL Team Sack Leaders - since 2006 Team Sacks Dallas Cowboys ........................291 Pittsburgh Steeler........................289 Philadelphia Eagles ....................287 New york Giants..........................285 San Diego Chargers....................283 Miami Dolphins............................282 Dallas’ 2011 sack total was bolstered by the four sacks the club had in the first half of the game at Arizona (12/4). It was the 11th time in team history the team had four-or-more first half sacks, and the first since having five against Baltimore (12/20/08).


WAREING DOWN THE ROAD

“DANNY BOY”

As DeMarcus Ware established a personal-best with four sacks at Philadelphia (10/30/11), he upped his streak of road games with multiple sacks to five straight. over that span, Ware racked up 13.0 sacks on the road. he had a league-record streak of 11 consecutive road games with a sack come to an end at Seattle (9/16). of his 111.0 career sacks, 63.5 came on the road - 10th in career road sacks in NFL history. The top spot is held by Bruce Smith, who tallied 96.0 career road sacks.

Since arriving in Dallas as a rookie free agent in 2010, Danny McCray has emerged as one of the team’s all-time great special teams coverage men. As a rookie in 2010 McCray led the squad with 28 special teams tackles - the third-most in a season in team history (since special teams tackles could be tracked in 1988). For the second straight season McCray led the squad with 19 special teams tackles in 2011. Despite seeing extended time at safety on defense due to injuries, including three starts in the first six games, McCray once again leads the team in special teams tackles this season with six. he added two in the game at Baltimore (10/14) to give him 52 for his career and crack the list of top-15 all-time Dallas Cowboys special teams tacklers, tying Vinson Smith (1990-92, 1997). he passed Smith after adding two more at Carolina (10/21) and tied Patrick Watkins (56) with stops at Atlanta (11/4) and at Philadelphia (11/11). he moved into 13th with three stops against Cleveland (11/18) then tied Jim Schwantz for 12th with one against Washington (11/22). McCray added one more against Pittsburgh (12/16) to give him 61 and tie Dale hellestrae for 11th:

SPENCER’S GIFTS

Through 14 games of the 2012 season, Anthony Spencer has a career-best 10.0 sacks. his sack total was bolstered by a threegame streak with at least a half sack - the third time in his career he has had such a streak. he also notched his sixth career multi-sack game with two quarterback takedowns in the Thanksgiving Day game against Washington then his seventh at Cincinnati (12/9). he reached 10.0 for the season with 1.5 sacks of Ben Roethlisberger against Pittsburgh (12/16). The Steelers game was also his fourth multi-sack game of the season, eighth of his career. In reaching a double-digit sack figure for the first time in his career, and coupled with DeMarcus Ware’s 11.5, the sack duo became the club’s fifth to each notch 10-or-more sacks in a season: Dallas Cowboys Double-Digit Sack Duos Player Sacks Player Sacks Randy White............12.5 Anthony Dickerson......10.5 Randy White............12.5 Jim Jeffcoat ................11.5 Ed Jones .................13.0 Jim Jeffcoat ................12.0 DeMarcus Ware ......14.0 Greg Ellis ....................12.5 DeMarcus Ware .....11.5 Anthony Spencer ......10.0 *Randy White was the third to top 10.0 (10.5)

THROW THE FLAG

The Dallas Cowboys 23-20 overtime win over Cleveland (11/18) was aided by 12 Browns penalties. Dallas was gifted 10 first downs by penalty - the most in a game in franchise history. The previous mark was 9 against Detroit (11/20/05):

Spencer has had some timely sacks through his career. of his career total 31.5 sacks, 12.5 have come on third down, 18.5 have come from inside the Dallas 40-yard line, 22.0 have come in the second half and 15.0 in the fourth quarter. Additionally, 17.5 of his sacks have come when the Cowboys are tied or losing. With one game left in 2012 Spencer is also the team leader with 99 tackles - second in his career (105 in 2010).

CARR-JACKED

A TALE OF TWO HALVES

In signing Brandon Carr during the 2012 free agency period, the Dallas Cowboys acquired a physical lock-down style cornerback. Carr’s skills have been on display through the second half of the season as his ball-hawk skills have also come to light. he leads the team with three interceptions, but each pick has come at an opportune time for the club that yielded points. his first came in the fourth quarter at Philadelphia (11/11), and he returned it 47 yards for his first career touchdown. Carr’s pickand-score gave Dallas a 31-17 lead in game they won 38-23. Carr’s second interception was in the club’s come-from-behind win at Cincinnati (12/9). Carr stepped in front of a second quarter Andy Dalton pass, returned it 37 yards to setup Dallas for a oneyard rushing touchdown four plays later, tying the game at 10-10. his third pick came just two plays in the overtime period against Pittsburgh (12/16), and he returned the theft 36 yards to the Steelers one-yard line, giving Bailey a 21-yard chip shot field goal to win the game. Carr averages 40.0 yards-per-return on his three interceptions and his 120 interception return yards are fifth in the league.

offensively speaking, the Dallas Cowboys 2012 season opened at slow pace. With a 3-5 record through the first half of the season, Dallas was held to 150 points - an average of 18.8 per-game. The club still maintained an offense that racked up yards, averaging 382.5. As the second half of the season got under way, Dallas’ point production took a giant leap. In the first game of the second half of the season - at Philadelphia (11/11) - the club racked up a season-high 38 points. The Cowboys repeated that point performance with another 38 just three weeks later against Philadelphia (12/2). Since the midpoint of the season, the club scored 208 points, 50 more than the first half, with one game to play. over the course of the last seven games, the club averaged 29.7 pointsper-game, a 10.9 point-per-game difference. over that sevengame span, Dallas owns a 5-2 record and is positioned for a playoff push as the regular season comes to a close.

OFFENSIVE LINE

The front line of the Dallas offense will again go through changes from the previous season as it welcomes starters at four of the five slots. The two bookends, Doug Free and 2011 first round pick Tyron Smith, will swap sides as Smith will man the blind side and Free will handle the right tackle spot, a position he filled in and played well for Marc Colombo (leg) for seven starts in 2009. Both guard spots will be filled by Dallas newcomers Mackenzy Bernadeau (bur-NAR-doe) at right guard and Nate Livings at left. Both were acquired during the 2012 free agency period with Bernadeau playing in Carolina since becoming the Panthers seventh round draft pick in 2008 and Livings coming from Cincinnati, where he landed as a rookie free agent following the 2006 NFL Draft. Phil Costa, who made the 2010 squad as an undrafted rookie reserve, improved his play through the preseason enough to be named the starter at center going into the 2011 season. Costa went on to start all 16 games at center in 2011 and will again anchor the middle of the line for Dallas. In reserve roles lie tackle Jermey Parnell, who came to Dallas as a lineman in 2010, 2011 fourth round selection David Arkin, who was originally slated to play guard but due to injuries along the line through the 2012 preseason played center and 10-year veteran Derrick Dockery, who is going into his second year with Dallas. Sidelined with a foot injury for the first six weeks of the season is 2011 undrafted rookie free agent guard/center Kevin Kowalski. Dallas also traded a 2013 draft choice to Miami for center Ryan Cook, who is a seven-year veteran that has started 40-of-77 career games for Miami and Minnesota and has seen time at right tackle and right guard in addition to center. Dallas added Darrion Weems just before the game at Cincinnati (12/9). Weems came to Dallas after spending the first 13 weeks of his rookie season on the practice squads of Indianapolis and Denver, first arriving in the league as a 2012 rookie free agent with Minnesota. Just prior to the game against New orleans (12/23), Dallas activated Ronald Leary, an undrafted rookie guard from Memphis. @ N.Y. Giants (9/5): The starting line consisted of LT Smith, LG Livings, C Costa, RG Bernadeau and RT Free before back issues sidelined Costa after the first series.

LINEBACKER

Arguably one of the biggest pass rushing threats in the NFL, DeMarcus Ware earned his sixth consecutive Player Sacks Pro Bowl nod in 2011 after another 1. harvey Martin ........114.0 solid season that saw him lead the 2. Randy White ..........111.0 team and finish second in the league DeMarcus Ware....111.0 with 19.5 sacks. his 2011 perfor4. Ed Jones ..............106.0 mance came on the heels of a 2010 5. George Andrie ........97.0 season that saw him lead the league 6. Jethro Pugh ............95.5 in sacks for the second time in his 7. Jim Jeffcoat ............94.5 career with 15.0. Since becoming 8. Bob Lilly ..................94.0 Dallas’ first first round draft pick in 2005, Ware has led or tied for the team lead in sacks each season and is the only defender currently in the league and the fifth all-time to string together seven consecutive double-digit sack seasons. he established a club record in 2008 after finishing with 20.0 sacks to tie Derrick Thomas for the sixth-most sacks in a season in league history. That season also saw Ware become the first Dallas defender to lead or tie for the team lead in sacks in each of his first four seasons with the team. he also became the fourth Cowboys defender - second since 1982 when sacks became official - to register three consecutive 10-plus sack seasons. With 20.0 sacks in 2008, 15.5 in 2010 and 19.5 last season, Ware is the sixth defender in league history with three seasons of at least 15.0 sacks. In Week 1 of 2012, Ware became the 28th league defender to reach 100 sacks for his career. Among his 109.0 career sacks was a streak of 10 consecutive games with a sack - spanning the final three games of 2007 and the first seven of 2008 - and 10 games with mulDallas Cowboys AllTime Sack Leaders

tiple sacks. Not only a pass rushing threat, Ware can play the run and cover receivers as he logged a career-high 110 tackles in 2008 and topped the 100-tackle plateau once again in 2010 with 108. A model of dependability, Ware has played in all 125 regular season games and the four playoff games through his career. he’s started 124 regular season contests, missing the only start of his career at New orleans (12/19/09) as a precaution due to a neck injury he suffered in the game before (vs. San Diego, 12/13/09) though he did play in the game. he earned his sixth consecutive Pro Bowl nod after finishing the 2011 season sixth on the team with 67 tackles and tops on the team with 19.5 sacks and 40 hurries. his 11.5 sacks thus far in 2012 are tied for seventh in the NFL, and his 71 tackles are fifth on the team. @ N.Y.
