Miles Austin racked up 10 catches for 250 yards and two touchdowns in the Cowboys' Week 5 overtime win over Kansas City


Austin has always been an intriguing talent with big-play skills, but he showed the ability to dominate a game from opening snap to finish Sunday, even hauling in the game-winning touchdown pass. With blazing wheels and outrageous leaping ability, Austin was no match for Chiefs CBs Maurice Leggett and Brandon Carr, who even had "over the top" safety help often. Clearly, Austin deserves a hike in playing time going forward. Playcaller Jason Garrett will determine whether it happens.
