It’s an unenviable task for anyone to guard Witten, who became just the second tight end in league history to join the 1,000-catch club last week. But that duty could fall to Green Bay safety Micah Hyde, or possibly Morgan Burnett or Clay Matthews. Regardless, expect Witten to remain the security blanket in this offense, as he leads the Cowboys with 60 receptions and 554 receiving yards.
