Matt Cassel becomes first Cowboys backup to win in 5 years

Some sports records will never be broken. Wilt Chamberlain's 100-point game. Joe DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak. And until Monday night, it started to look like Stephen McGee's mark as "Last Dallas Cowboy quarterback not named Tony Romo to win a game" might move closer to joining that list.
