With his two sacks on Sunday against the St. Louis Rams, DeMarcus Ware became the franchise leader in sacks with 115.0. The list now appears as follows: Ware, 115.0 Harvey Martin, 114.0 Randy White, 111.0 Too Tall Jones, 106.0 George Andrie, 97.0 Of course, the numbers for the last four are unofficial stats kept by the team, given that the NFL did not count sacks as an official statistic until 1982. The official sack totals would appear as: Martin, 10.0 White, 52.0 Jones, 57.5 Andrie, 0.0 * * * Which player formerly held the official record for team sacks? It was Jim Jeffcoat with 94.5. * * * Ware’s first sack came against San Francisco on September 25, 2005. The quarterback was Tim Rattay. * * * Ware had 2.0 sacks against the Rams. It marked the 24th time that Ware had 2.0 or more sacks in a game. * * * DeMarco Murray and the offensive line had great games against the Rams. If Murray only played against the Rams, Emmitt Smith might start worrying about his career rushing mark. In two games against St. Louis, Murray has had 400 rushing yards on 51 carries. That’s 7.8 yards per carry and 200 yards per game. In 24 games against everyone else, Murray has had 1446 rushing yards on 332 carries. That’s 4.4 yards per carry and 60.25 yards per game. * * * The Cowboys now sit alone in first place in the NFC East with a 2-1 record. The last time the Cowboys had sole possession of the division was not as long ago as it may seem. In 2011, the Cowboys improved their record to 7-4 with a win over Miami and held first place for two weeks. However, the 7-5 Cowboys lost to the 6-6 Giants at home, and the Cowboys lost again to the Giants in the season finale to lose a chance to make the playoffs.   Related articles DeMarcus Ware gets Dallas sacks record DeMarcus Ware becomes Cowboys’ all-time sack leader DeMarcus Ware Becomes Cowboys’ Career Sacks Leader DeMarcus Ware 1.5 sacks away becoming Cowboys all-time leader; wants to learn about Harvey Martin
