Jason Witten continues pursuit of history
By Todd Archer
IRVING, Texas -- With two games left in the regular season, Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten stands on the edge of NFL history.
Given how Witten's season started, that is a remarkable feat.
With a career-high 97 catches, Witten needs six in the final two games against the New Orleans Saints and Washington Redskins to break Tony Gonzalez's NFL season record for receptions by a tight end.
"I always felt good, kept my confidence up, but it was a pretty humbling experience there for a few games, that stretch where I felt like nothing could go right," Witten said. "Just had to stay the course and be mentally strong and tough enough to block that out and move on. You know what you've done in the past and what got you to this point, but, yeah, it's probably more special because of how it started out for me."
