IRVING, Texas (AP) - Terrell Owens is a force again. Perhaps the
Dallas Cowboys are, too.
Bottled up all season, and his frustration over it starting to
show, Owens broke out with 213 yards receiving to help the Cowboys
beat the San Francisco 49ers 35-22 Sunday and continue what's
looking like the start of a playoff push.
Owens' total was the second-most of his career, behind only the
283 yards he had in the 2000 game in which he caught an NFL-record
20 passes, back when he played for the 49ers, and the fifth-best in
It was the most in the NFL since Philadelphia's Kevin Curtis had
221 in September 2007 and the most by a Dallas player since Tony
Hill had 213 against Philadelphia in 1979.
While Owens' big day should help cut some tension in the locker
room, the better news for the Cowboys (7-4) was having consecutive
victories for the first time since starting 3-0. With sputtering
Seattle coming to Texas Stadium on Thanksgiving, Dallas has a
chance to go steaming into December in prime position for a
wild-card playoff berth.
