IRVING, Texas -- Brad Johnson didn't mind the boos. He gladly traded them for a victory.
• Leading by four, the Cowboys stopped a late Buccaneers drive in Dallas territory to hold on and snap their two-game losing skid.
• Brad Johnson went 19-for-33 for 122 yards with 1 TD and no interceptions. He had three interceptions last week against the Rams.
• The Buccaneers had six drives into Dallas territory but come away with only three field goals. Jeff Garcia had 228 passing yards with no TDs or picks in the loss.
• Terrell Owens had five catches for 33 yards. He has only 11 catches and 100 receiving yards in his past three games.
• Cowboys LB DeMarcus Ware failed to record a sack, snapping his NFL record-tying streak of 10 games with at least one sack.
-- ESPN research
Dallas' 10 first-half points are the most against Tampa Bay this season. It also was the first time this season the Bucs trailed at halftime. ... Johnson's TD pass moved him into 51st place on the career list, notable because of who he passed: Troy Aikman. ... Ware was so eager for a sack he was caught offsides three times. ... Bucs S Jermaine Phillips left with an arm injury. "I'm worried about him," Gruden said.
