NOTES: Dallas tops Houston

Tony Romo extended his streak of consecutive games with a touchdown pass to 15 with two TDs against the Texans.

—The win today was the 82nd career victory for Wade Phillips as a head coach – including his stints as an interim head coach – which ties him with his father Bum Phillips for career wins.

—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.

—G Kyle Kosier suffered a sprained right knee in the fourth quarter. He will undergo an MRI on Monday. It's the same knee he sprained in training camp, which forced him to miss the season opener. Montrae Holland will start in his place.

—RB Felix Jones' 43 rushing yards against the Texans 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.

—S Danny McCray intercepted his first career pass in the fourth quarter.

—QB Tony Romo extended his streak of consecutive games with a touchdown pass to 15 with two TDs against the Texans.

—LB DeMarcus Ware finished the Texans game with 3.0 sacks to tie his career high (five other times). It also marked the 14th multiple-sack game of his career.

—WR Roy Williams had five catches for 117 receiving yards against the Texans, his most receiving yards since going for 204 while with Detroit at Philadelphia (Sept. 23, 2007). It was also his second 100-yard outing as a Dallas Cowboy.
