This might be Austin's best day

ARLINGTON, Texas -- I know Miles Austin had 250 receiving yards against the Chiefs earlier this season, but I feel like his effort Thursday might be even more impressive. The Chiefs were seriously outmanned in the secondary that day. The Raiders showed up with the great Nnamdi Asomugha, Chris Johnson and Tyvon Branch. Austin has burned them on a variety of crossing patterns.

They can't cover him on the slant because he's using his size and speed to get a step on Johnson. And Asomugha's wasting his time covering Roy Williams because that's who keeps lining up on his side. If I'm coaching the Raiders, I'd find a way to have Asomugha follow Austin around. But the Raiders are staying with their scheme.

OK, it's 17-7, Cowboys on top early in the fourth quarter. And Jason Witten just made a huge play.
