After leading the league in run defense for almost the entire month of October Dallas’ defense has been victimized big time the past two weeks. Through the first six weeks Dallas was giving up just under 70 yards rushing per game (69.7). Only one team had over 100 yards in a game against and New England barely got there in Week 5 (101 yards). The last two weeks it’s been a jail break. Philadelphia’s LeSean McCoy sprinted for 185 yards and Seattle’s Marshawn Lynch rumbled for 135. Here’s the breakdown of the run defense numbers from the first six weeks for the Cowboys and the last two. Rush yds per game 1st 6 - 69.7 last 2 – 200.5 Avg. yds per carry1st 6 – 3.3 last 2 - 5.9 Attempts per game1st 6 – 20 last 2 – 34 1st downs allowed rushing1st 6 – 21 last 2 – 21 Rushing TDs allowed1st 6 – 2 last 2 – 3  Tackles for loss vs. run1st 6 – 28 out of 125 (22.5%) last 2 – 7 out of 68 (10.2%)
