On the other end of the spectrum, Travis Fulgham went off for ten catches and over 150 yards in the same game. Who predicted these two would be the two leading receivers in a Pennsylvania shootout?

It’s Andy Dalton SZN now, which is a huge development that will impact all of the Cowboys pass-catchers. With their win on Sunday, Dallas is now the top team in the NFC east but with Dak’s injury, the division is even more wide open than it was before.
