Austin breaks Cowboys’ team record

Miles Austin not only had a career day, but his biggest play of the day was also the game-winner in overtime.

Austin finished with 10 receptions for a team single-game record 250 yards receiving and two touchdowns, including a 60-yard catch-and-run in overtime time that gave the Cowboys a 26-20 win over Kansas City.

Austin broke the record of 246 yards receiving set by Hall of Fame wide receiver Bob Hayes on Nov. 13, 1966.

His other receiving touchdown was a 59-yard pass from Tony Romo with 2:16 remaining in regulation to give the Cowboys a 20-16 lead. Austin got his first career start Sunday in place of the injured Roy Williams.
