STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - Bills have lost three straight and five of past seven meetings against Cowboys, dating to consecutive Super Bowl losses in 1992 and ‘93. … Loss would assure Cowboys worst finish since going 5-11 in 2002. … QB Kellen Moore set to make first career start after taking over for Matt Cassel last weekend. … WR Dez Bryant has touchdown catch in 14 consecutive games against AFC opponents, NFL’s longest inter-conference streak since 1970. … DE DeMarcus Lawrence has sacks in three consecutive games and six in his past six. … TE Jason Witten has reception in 117 consecutive games, tied with Hall of Fame WR Michael Irvin for longest in team history. … Bills have lost four of five and are eliminated from playoff contention for 16th straight season. It’s NFL’s longest active drought and tied with the 1936-51 Detroit Lions for eighth longest in league history. … QB Tyrod Taylor has 450 yards rushing, 27 short of breaking franchise record set by Doug Flutie in 1999. … WR Sammy Watkins has 19 catches for 459 yards and six TDs in past four games. … Offense has topped 400 yards five times this season, most since doing that five times in 2002 during quarterback Drew Bledsoe’s first year in Buffalo. …. Defense has yet to register more than two sacks in game this season. Buffalo’s 20 sacks are fewest through 14 games since team had 19 in 2007. … Fantasy Tip: Bryant has chance for late-season breakout game against Bills’ banged-up secondary that allowed DeSean Jackson to gain 153 yards receiving and score touchdown last week.
