Jason Witten set an NFL record for tight ends when he caught 18 passes for a career-best 167 yards against the Giants the last time the two teams met. Antrel Rolle says that won’t happen again.

“He's done that one time since I've been here, had that miraculous game," Rolle said. "That's not gonna happen again. I can assure that. He will not have 17, 18 catches a game. That's not gonna happen again."

On a conference call with the New York media, Tony Romo was asked if the Cowboys saw something in the Giants’ defense that allowed them to use Witten so effectively. Romo paused.

“I don't really want to answer that question,” he said. “It's a good question, though.”

Witten has had some big games against the Giants. In 2009 he caught 14 passes for 156 yards (which was a year before Rolle signed with the Giants). In 20 career games against the Giants he’s caught 101 passes for 1,100 yards and six touchdowns.

For Rolle, though, the miracles will end on Sunday.
