The Dallas Morning News - [Full Article]

Cowboys' opponents did a better job of taking Jason Witten out of games in the second half of the season. They often used bracket coverage against Witten by covering him with a safety over the top and a linebacker underneath.

Witten had only one touchdown catch over the Cowboys' last eight games. Of his five touchdown catches, the first three were for 1 yard each.

Witten was targeted an average of 8.9 times over the first eight games and only 5.8 times over the last eight games of the season.
