Found December 17, 2011 on Know Your Dallas Cowboys: The Blog:

The Cowboys are set to take on Tampa Bay for the first time since 2009. The teams have faced one another 14 times, with Dallas holding an 11-3 record.

Their last contest resulted in a 34-21 win. The Cowboys scored three second-half touchdowns in the win. Noteworthy: the three Cowboys who scored (Patrick Crayton, Roy Williams, and Marion Barber) are no longer with the team.

Miles Austin was not yet a starter, but he gave a preview of things to come with a 42-yard touchdown reception on a catch and run. That score gave Dallas a 13-7 halftime lead.
