About Witten

He remains one of the most effective pass-catching tight ends in the league. Witten has caught 37 passes for 403 yards and three touchdowns. He has caught at least 60 passes nine consecutive seasons.

 

Who has the edge?

Since 2003, only Tony Gonzalez has accounted for more catches and receiving yards among tight ends. Of Witten’s 37 catches this season, 21 have resulted in first downs. This will be another tough matchup for Henderson and the Vikings linebackers.

 

Advantage: Witten

THE BIG NUMBER

36.5 The Cowboys’ scoring average at home this season. Overall, Dallas ranks fourth in the NFL in scoring at 28.8 points per game.

BREAKOUT DAY

Jared Allen, Vikings: The Pro Bowl defensive end was on the trading block this week. Allen said he understood the business aspect of it and harbors no ill feelings toward his team. Allen has only 4½ sacks in seven games, but he sounded particularly motivated this week to raise his level of play.
