The Dallas Cowboys were dominant in their win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday afternoon. The 35-10 win gives Dallas a 7-1 mark on the season and the best record in the NFC. How did they get the easy win over Cleveland? We take a look at some of the important numbers.
0 - The number of individual 100-yard performances the Cowboys defense has allowed this season. Rushing or receiving.
8 - The number of games in which the Dallas defense has not allowed an opponent over 23 points. The last time Dallas started a season with 8 games under 23 points? 1994
12 - The franchise record for number of TDs thrown by a rookie QB, held by Rayne Dakota Prescott. He will undoubtedly expand upon that number as we are literally only halfway through the season.
6 - The number of games in a row the Dallas offense has produced 400 yards or more. Also a franchise record.
141.8 - Dak Prescott’s most efficient passing game to date. An excellent bounce back from last week’s truly bad outing. The kid just keeps doing everything you could want him to.
45 - The amount of rushing yardage given up by the Dallas defense, bringing them to an average 86 yards per game on the season. This should be a top ten ranking after today.
5.7 - Net yards per pass play (includes sacks). This brings Dallas down to 6.8 yards per pass attempt on the season. Also a top ten number.
4 - Dallas sacks on the game. Maliek Collins got the first two of his rookie season. Dallas has 18 sacks on the year so far.
17.5 - The average points per game the Dallas defense is giving up. This is top 5 in the NFL.
11 - The percentage of Cleveland Browns 3rd down conversions.
39:39 - Time of possession for the Dallas Cowboys. nearly a 2:1 ratio over their opponent.
There were also a few milestones specific to one of the greatest players the NFL has ever seen, Jason Witten.
134 - Witten’s receiving yardage on the day, the sixth-best total of his career. Witten now has 20 such games, 4th all-time in NFL history.
62 - The number of TDs Witten has now scored in his career, tying him with Shannon Sharpe at fourth all-time among tight ends.
155 - The new franchise record for consecutive games started. Congratulations, Senator.
