The Cowboys have more victories on Monday Night Football than any other NFL team; the Miami Dolphins are second with 39 and the San Francisco 49ers are third with 38.

The team has played in a league record of 56 post-season games , the most division titles with 20, the most appearances in the NFC Championship Game , and the most Super Bowl appearances .
