Terrell Owens moved into third place all-time with 126 career TD receptions, trailing only Jerry Rice (197) and Cris Carter (130) after surpassing Marvin Harrison (123) on Sunday. He also became the fifth NFL receiver in 10 seasons to haul in four touchdowns in a game. The Patriots' Randy Moss accomplished the same feat on Sunday.

|-- All franchise records; Owens tied the Cowboys' single-game mark set by Bob Hayes vs. the Oilers in Dec. 1970|
Owens has caught three TDs four times. ... Washington RT Todd Wade left with a sprained knee. ... Romo has 27 TDs, third-most in team history. ... Clinton Portis ran for only 36 yards after going over 100 two straight games, but he had only 12 carries.
Dallas offensive coordinator Jason Garrett used a good mix of the power running game and the vertical passing attack to overcome a Washington defense that played well for most of the game. Cowboys QB Tony Romo exploited the Redskinsí two-deep zone coverage when defenders failed to jam receivers off the line of scrimmage and funnel them inside to help the deep safeties on downfield routes, failures that led directly to four touchdown catches for Terrell Owens. The Redskins stayed in the game until the end, but their inability to stop Romo and Owens was the difference.
