Early in the second quarter, Owens made it 132 with a 4-yard TD.

On the first TD, Owens was behind the defenders and caught the ball in stride from Tony Romo near the 15 and ran untouched into the end zone. It was the longest pass of Romo's career.

Owens is 65 TD receptions behind Pro Football Hall of Famer and former teammate Jerry Rice on the NFL list. Owens had been tied with Cris Carter for second place.

Owens has three TDs this season, and 31 in 33 games with the Cowboys. He has caught 28 from Romo, making them the league's top quarterback-receiver TD combination since 2006.

Before coming to Dallas in 2006, Owens had 20 TDs in two seasons with the Eagles. He spent the first eight seasons of his career with San Francisco, five of those with Rice.
