Tony Romo and Dez Bryant set a team record on Sunday by connecting on their 50th touchdown. This mark broke the previous high of 49 set by Troy Aikman and Michael Irvin.
Here is a look at the highest number of touchdown connections in team history, organized chronologically by quarterback.
Eddie LeBaron (1960-1963)
LeBaron threw 45 touchdown passes during his career in Dallas, connecting 21 times to Frank Clarke.
Don Meredith (1960-1968)
Meredith had 135 touchdown passes during his career from 1960 to 1968. He connected with Bob Hayes on 36 of those.
Craig Morton (1965-1974)
Hayes was also at the top of Morton’s list. Of Morton’s 80 touchdown passes as a Cowboy, 21 went to Hayes.
Roger Staubach (1969-1979)
Two receivers had 27 touchdown receptions from Staubach. Both Billy Joe DuPree and Drew Pearson had 27 touchdown receptions from Staubach, who had a total of 153.
Danny White (1976-1988)
White threw two more touchdowns than Staubach, finishing with 155. He connected with Tony Hill on 31 of those.
Steve Pelluer (1984-1988)
No, Pelluer does not belong on this list. He connected with Irvin on four touchdowns, but the player who caught the highest number of Pelluer’s 28 touchdown passes was Ray Alexander. Remember that name?
Troy Aikman (1989-2000)
Aikman connected with Irvin for 49 touchdowns between 1989 and 1999.
Quincy Carter (2001-2003)
Another one who I could omit, but I included him anyway. He connected on five touchdowns with three different players, including Antonio Bryant, Terry Glenn, and Joey Galloway.
Drew Bledsoe (2005-2006)
Bledsoe threw 30 touchdown passes with Dallas. He connected with Jason Witten on six of those.
Tony Romo (2003-present)
Romo shattered the team record for touchdown passes, as he has thrown for 247. In addition to the 50 touchdowns to Bryant, Romo has also connected with Witten 37 times and Terrell Owens 34 times.
