KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Miles Austin looked nothing like a backup making his first career start.Stepping in for injured wide receiver Roy Williams, Austin caught 10 passes for a franchise-record 250 yards and scored the winning touchdown in overtime of the Cowboys' 26-20 victory Sunday over the winless Kansas City Chiefs.
Miles Austin had almost as many yards Sunday as all of last season and in the process set the mark for most receiving yards in a single game in Cowboys history.
