Witten faces similar ending with familiar resolve

IRVING, Texas (AP) - Jason Witten's memorable "same old story" sound bite will resonate until the Dallas Cowboys change the ending and make the playoffs.

The star tight end made the comment before training camp last season, which ended with a loss in a playoffs-or-bust finale for the second straight year.

With the Cowboys coming off a blowout loss to Chicago and similar postseason scenarios brewing again, Witten is facing the same old questions with familiar candor and resolve. He says "until we do it, we're going to take criticism."

Green Bay (6-6-1) visits Dallas on Sunday with both teams clinging to playoff hopes.

The Cowboys (7-6) trail Philadelphia by a game in the NFC East with three remaining. As long as that deficit doesn't reach two games, Dallas can take the division and the playoff berth by beating the Eagles in the finale at home.
