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-year-old franchise record of 114. The Rams trying for their first 2-1 start since 2006 had just 18 yards total offense in the first half compared to 96 for Murray alone. The Cowboys had 202 yards before halftime. Romo who had 217 yards passing went 2 yards to Dez Bryant for the first Dallas score. He had a pair of 24-yarders in the second half to rookie tight end Gavin Escobar and Dwayne Harris who bounced back from a **** on the game's first punt.
