DeMarco Murray found the perfect antidote for his recent malaise: the St. Louis Rams.
Murray rushed for 175 yards and a touchdown two years after torching St. Louis with a franchise record as a rookie and Tony Romo threw for three scores in a 31-7 victory Sunday.
Murray's first 100-yard game in more than a year started with a 14-yard run on Dallas' first offensive play and he had plenty of open space on a 36-yarder to start Dallas' second drive to a 10-lead late in the first quarter.
Sam Bradford Murray's old college teammate at Oklahoma didn't have nearly as much room to operate.
The Cowboys (2-1) sacked him four times in the first half and had six in total after St. Louis (1-2) hadn't allowed a sack in four games dating to last season. It was the longest streak for the Rams since John Hadl was under center for a division champion in 1973.
Bradford still went 29 for 48 and was not intercepted.
DeMarcus Ware had two sacks and broke Harvey Martin's 30...
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...

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...
Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo had a productive afternoon Sunday against St. Louis.Fantasy Spin:Romo went off for 210 yards and three touchdowns in the victory. Amazingly, his 70.8 percent completion rate was his lowest of the season. The 137.2 QB rating Romo posted on Sunday was his highest since Week 13 of the 2012 season (150.5 rating in a win against the Eagles).
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...
Are the Dallas Cowboys displaying championship characteristics after all these years. After hearing experts and pundits criticize the Cowboys for years because of a lack of leadership, it seems Dallas may finally have some accountability in house.
Ian Rapoport is reporting that Cowboys defensive tackle Jason Hatcher lit into Tony Romo for his penchant to audible from running plays...
Enter George Selvie…. Today Jerry Jones stated that Anthony Spencer could be out for the rest of the season with a knee injury. That is a huge loss for the Cowboys. Spencer was given an extension and they will now rely George Selvie who has been super impressive. Nick Eatman@nickeatman Jerry Jones says Anthony Spencer […]
ARLINGTON, Texas -- For a club plagued by an "undercurrent of frustration" featuring the alleged "calling out" of Tony Romo by fellow team leader Jason Hatcher, the Dallas Cowboys certainly looked like a unified bunch in Sunday's 31-7 home win over St. Louis.
"I didn't call out Romo," said Hatcher after the game, responding to questions about...
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...
This Sunday, the Dallas Cowboys hope to rebound from a 17-16 Week 2 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, when they host the other team from Missouri, the St. Louis Rams. 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...
What do you say when the Cowboys offensive game-plan goes directly as they had hoped? In this study, these Tuesdays don't come around very often - so you enjoy it while you can. It is certainly no easy task in the NFL to write a game-plan on Tuesday and then to look back the following Sunday night and agree that just about everything you tried went as you wanted.
But, on this...
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...
