Dallas Cowboys' Jason Witten breaks record for TE catches

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten has broken the NFL record for catches in a season by a tight end.

Witten's 103rd catch of the season came in overtime Sunday in a 34-31 loss to New Orleans Saints.

Tony Gonzalez held the mark with 102 catches for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2004.

Witten had consecutive catches in overtime, the second being his sixth of the game.
