    Cunningham is a good guess, but it is not correct. Someone else who played for us had an even higher rating one season (for another team).

    His last official completion went to Tony Hill.

    Higher that an a 106 QB rating (Cunningham) is rare... heck Romo has never done better than 102.

    Hmmm..

    The 160 PAs thing has me stumped. Has to be a small sample size guy.

    Wade Wilson had a lot of low pass attempt years and was pretty decent so that would be my guess.

    That would be correct.

    You are correct. Wilson had a rating of 110.1 for the Falcons in 1992.

    He was Chris Miller's backup that season but saw some significant playing time in several games. Wilson wound up starting the last three games (when he had 114 of his 163 attempts), including a game against Dallas when he posted a rating of 113.9 (340 yards, two TDs, no interceptions). The week before that, he threw for 324 yards and five touchdowns, with no interceptions and a rating of 154.5 against the Bucs. He played nine games that season and had a rating of 109.7 or better in six of them.

    Good one Adam.

    I have one....

    Which NFL WR holds the record for the most TD receptions against the Cowboys in a single game?

    For no gain, also correct.

    Nope, although Randy might hold the single game yardage record against Dallas.

    Yep.

    1994 - Thanksgiving Day vs a Aikman-less Cowboys led by none other than Jason Garrett.

    5 games later Sterling Sharpe's career ended prematurely with a career ending neck injury.

    Did I mention that Dez reminds me of Sharpe when he has the ball in his hands after the catch?

    Nope. One of the two guys who hold the TD record against us also had the most yards against us in the same game.

    Moss has never had more than 144 yards against us.

    Harold Jackson also had four TD catches against us in 1973. He also had 238 yards in that game, which is the record against us.



    Speaking of Dez, he had nine catches for 224 yards and two touchdowns on Sunday. He became the sixth different Cowboys receiver to have at least eight catches, 200 yards and two TDs in the same game. No opponent, however, has ever done that against us.

    That's amazing that no WR has done it against the Cowboys.

    You can't same about opposing runners. Eric Dickerson running for 248 yards and 2 TDs against Dallas in a playoff shutout is still seared into my brain.

    Okay, I hope this one isn't too easy. What former Cowboys player scored a TD against the Cowboys and got scared by an explosion?
