STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - Jets haven't won four in row since 2010. ...

QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has won past three starts with 930 yards, nine TDs and no interceptions for 111.5 rating. Seeking fourth straight game with at least two touchdowns and no picks. ... RB Chris Ivory leads AFC with 914 rushing yards and is looking for first career 1,000-yard season. He had two TDs in only previous meeting with Cowboys while with New Orleans in 2010. ... Marshall seeks seventh straight game with TD and can tie Hall of Famer Don Maynard's club record of nine 100-yard games in 1967. ... Jets have 11 sacks during three-game winning streak, most in league in that span. ... DE Muhammad Wilkerson has career-high 12 sacks, including three last Sunday against Tennessee. ...

WR Dez Bryant has gone 13 straight games with at least one touchdown against AFC opponents, longest interconference streak since 1970. But three-year run of at least 10 scoring catches per season is likely over; he has two. ... TE Jason Witten seeking three straight games with 100 yards receiving or touchdown against Jets. ... LB Sean Lee leads NFL linebackers with 12 interceptions since entering league in 2010, but is on career-long 10-game streak without one. ... DE DeMarcus Lawrence has five sacks in five games and looking for career-best third straight game with at least one. ... Fantasy Tip: Marshall has 493 yards in five career games against Cowboys, who are likely to be thin at cornerback with Morris Claiborne nursing hamstring injury.
