Jason Witten returns to form
|Cowboys TE Jason Witten says he is not worried about the offense, but is frustrated with the lack of execution. |
“Hey, look I never doubted myself,” Witten said. “A lot of those were tough catches that I expect and we expect me to make. I don’t blink at those. I know what I’m capable of. I know how I feel and play. I was able to get some drives going, but it should be the other way around. It shouldn’t be a surprise. It should be a surprise the way it was (with the drops). You’ve got to stay confident and play better and better.”
Witten’s 13 catches were the third most he has had in a game and the 112 yards marked the 15th time he topped 100 yards in a game. His touchdown was the 42nd of his career, moving him to sixth in team history.
Witten also became the third tight end in NFL history to surpass 8,000 receiving yards in a career. He has 8,097 yards, trailing only Tony Gonzalez and Shannon Sharpe. Witten did it in 147 games, the quickest among the tight ends. Gonzalez did it in 149 games.
