Friday News & Notes

The Dallas Cowboys are the only team in the league with three players over 650 receiving yards.

* Through 14 games, the Dallas Cowboys are the only team in the league with three players over 650 receiving yards (Terry Glenn, 1,004; Jason Witten, 698; Keyshawn Johnson, 653). The Cowboys are on the verge of having three players top the 700-yard receiving mark for the season. It would be just the third time in club history that Dallas has had that happen, and the first time since 1986. Defensively, Dallas has had 15 players record a sack this season. Only San Diego (16) has had more people involved in getting to the quarterback.

* Through the 2005 season, the Dallas Cowboys have enjoyed great success in the fourth quarter, outscoring opponents 93-47 in the final frame - yielding an average of 3.4 points in the quarter. Eight times this season, Cowboys opponents have been held scoreless in the fourth quarter.

The Chicago Bears are the only team in the league to allow fewer fourth-quarter points (44) than the Cowboys.

* DT Thomas Johnson was inactive for the first 13 games of the season, but made his NFL debut last week against the Redskins and posted three tackles.

* WR Keyshawn Johnson has recorded at least one catch in each of the 149 games he has played. He is second on the team in receptions (60), tied for the lead in touchdown catches (six) and is third on the team in receiving yards (635).

* TE Jason Witten is currently fifth in the NFL among tight ends in receptions (61) and sixth in receiving yards (698). With four catches last week, he joined Doug Cosbie (1984-85) as the only two tight ends in club history with back-to-back 60-catch seasons.

* WR Terry Glenn leads the team - and is 12th in the league - with 1,004 receiving yards and is third on the team with 56 receptions. He currently averages 17.9 yards per catch, third-best in the league. With 25 receiving yards last week, he became the first Dallas receiver since Raghib Ismail (1999) to top the 1,000-yard mark, doing so for the third time in his career. He is the seventh player in Cowboys history to do so.
