IRVING, Texas – Terry McAulay’s crew will work Sunday’s game between the Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos at AT&T Stadium.

It’s the first time the Cowboys have seen McAulay since Week 15 of the 2011 season when they beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31-15. The Cowboys had just two penalties for 15 yards in the game with a Jason Witten false start and a Tyron Smith hold. The Buccaneers were penalized six times for 46 yards.

Last week McAulay’s crew called the New York Giants-Kansas City Chiefs game and called 14 penalties for 127 yards. They called seven holding penalties and had four special teams’ penalties.

Here’s the breakdown:

Illegal block above the waist – 1
Offensive holding – 7
Defensive pass interference – 1
False start – 1
Intentional grounding – 1
Illegal formation – 1
Clipping – 1
Delay of game – 1

Quarter-by-quarter:

First – 7
Second – 1
Third – 3
Fourth – 3
