DeMarco Murray ran for a franchise-record 253 yards, including a 91-yard touchdown that's the second-longest in club history, to lead the Dallas Cowboys to a 34-7 victory over the ailing St. Louis Rams on Sunday. In the start of a football-baseball doubleheader between teams from Dallas-Fort Worth and St. Louis, the Cowboys (3-3) emphatically ended their stretch of 11 straight games decided by four points or less. The Rams (0-6) were without quarterback Sam Bradford and were averaging the fewest points in the league even with him. They also had by far the worst run defense in the NFL, allowing 163 yards per game. Quarterback A.J. Feeley was mediocre in his first start since 2007 and Steven Jackson ran for 70 yards and a touchdown. St. Louis also saw right tackle Jason Smith and backup defensive tackle Darell Scott carted off with head injuries.
