The Cowboys needed to avoid a slow start and they came out focused in all facets of the game. The Cowboys ran all over the Rams, literally, in a lopsided victory 31-7. This is the type of game the Cowboys would have been tripped by, but they made a statement instead. You want your team to dictate how the offense will operate and today the Cowboys unleashed DeMarco Murray to the tune of 175 yards on 26 carries, plus a touchdown.
I wouldn’t say the Cowboys have developed an identity on offense yet, but if the Cowboys can use this game as a launch pad for consecutive wins, then we may be in for something magical this season – we’ll see. Its just one game, but it underscores what this team in capable of doing.
Defensively, the Cowboys do have an identity and that’s a mauling defense. We are flying around on every snap, everyone is contributing to the gang tackling, and we are making people think twice about passing down the field. Opposing QBs have been consistently getting hit, hurrie...
BEST OF MAXIM
After a week of discussion about how the Cowboys needed to commit to the run the team, and their Quarterback who took some heat from Cowboys defenders this week for audibling away from rush calls too frequently, kept the ball on the ground and controlled the tempo against the St. Louis Rams. Romo did his part, too, with three touchdowns and a 70.8 completion percentage but Murray’s...

DeMarco Murray rushed for 175 yards and a touchdown, Tony Romo threw for three scores and the Dallas Cowboys beat the St. Louis Rams 31-7 Sunday.

Harvey Martin, 114.0

Too Tall Jones, 106.0

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...
Before DeMarco Murray ran through St. Louis just like he did when he set a franchise record two years ago, the Dallas defense stopped the Rams twice.
The Cowboys had to get a pair of three-and-outs because Dwayne Harris muffed the game's first punt, but that just gave Dallas a chance to get the first of six sacks on Sam Bradford.
Murray ran for 175 yards and a touchdown, Tony...
ARLINGTON, Texas -- If Jason Hatcher indeed did call out Tony Romo, it was DeMarco Murray who answered the call.
Murray ran wild--again--against the St. Louis Rams with 175 yards in the Cowboys' 31-7 win Sunday.
Before the game, the buzz was about a report that Hatcher, the outspoken defensive tackle, called out Romo after a mistake in practice last week.
According to the...

Dallas defensive end DeMarcus Ware sacked Rams quarterback Sam Bradford twice on Sunday to become the Cowboys' all-time sacks leader.Fantasy Spin:His second sack pushed him ahead of Harvey Martin, who set the mark 30 years earlier. Ware (115 career sacks) is 17th on the NFL's all-time sacks list.
FINAL SCORE: 31-7
GAME MVP: DeMarco Murray ( 175 yards, 1 TD )
ANALYSIS: The Rams had looked very competitive the first two weeks of the season, and a big part of that was the offensive line's ability to protect Sam Bradford. This week, they allowed 8 QB hits and 6 sacks. They also couldn't find a way to open any holes in the running game. As a...
The last time Demarco Murray faced St Louis, he was a relative unknown. But then he turnstyled the entire Rams defense while shoving Emmitt Smith aside in the Dallas Cowboys record books.
You're forgiven if you thought this Rams team would be different. You're forgiven if you believed the hype. I did too. But now, after watching Murray get free runs inside and out...

For the most part, the Cowboys will be relatively healthy for their Week 3 matchup against the Rams. However, a few key players show up on the injury report for Dallas this week.Linebacker Ernie Sims did not participate...
Just over 80,000 fans watched the Cowboys record their first rout in two seasons.
The Dallas Cowboys managed to play their entire 2012 season by trailing in every single game at some point. The widest margin of victory was 15 points in a 38-23 win over the Eagles. That game was hardly a blowout, given that the Cowboys scored 21 points in the fourth quarter.
The last blowout win before...
