Cowboys @ Browns: Breaking Down The Dallas Win By The Numbers

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.
