Stopping Demarco Murray will be key to a Rams victory

On Sunday, the Rams return home from a much-needed victory in Tampa Bay to take on the visiting Dallas Cowboys. The matchup represents the final game in what’s widely been considered the “soft” part of the team’s schedule, as they’ll dive into some very difficult NFC West and NFC East games as soon as they complete their Week 4 bye. However, soft or not, the Rams face one...

BBQ Mailbag: The DeMarco Murray edition

BBQ: DeMarco Murray Edition The Dallas Cowboys didn’t light up the scoreboard in last Sunday’s 26-10 victory over the Tennessee Titans. One Cowboy did light up the running stats as DeMarco Murray ran 29 times for 167 yards. Murray’s numbers are in comparison of the greats of yesterday, Emmitt Smith and Tony Dorsett. His 100 yard game on Sunday made him the third player in team...

The change that may have saved the Dallas Cowboys’ season

Let’s face it, the Dallas Cowboys’ opener against the San Francisco 49ers was a complete and total disaster. I mean it was so bad that I literally turned my head at times. The Cowboys looked awful, and nothing seemed to be working. People were doing their best to find “bright spots” and talking about how the defense pitched a shutout in the second half. “Pretty easy to...

All 22 review: Which Dallas Cowboys came to play on Sunday?

I just got done watching the all-22 film from the Dallas Cowboys win over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. Here’s some observations: - I thought DeMarco Murray ran hard. He missed some holes and fumbled, but he carried the offense Sunday. And as good as DeMarco Murray ran on Sunday, his blocking in pass protection was even better. This offseason, I really wanted to see Dallas use...

How Much Better are the Cowboys When Romo Throws Less?

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo usually gets most of the blame for the team’s lack of success thrown his way. And as the face of the franchise, this is to be expected. Unlike other quarterbacks, Romo doesn’t get the praise he deserves when the team wins. Interestingly enough, the Cowboys 26-10 win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 2 featured a lot less of Romo and more of...

The Dallas Cowboys' Defense Loves DeMarco Murray

Tony Romo handed the ball to DeMarco Murray, he rushed for six yards, got up, and trotted back to the huddle. Guess what happened after that? The Cowboys ran the ball again and again. Is this real life?The Cowboys promised a commitment to the run in 2014, and we all sort of just assumed that wasn't going to stand true. Even Joe Buck and Troy Aikman joked about how long it would...

Murray running the show for Cowboys' offense early

IRVING, Texas (AP) DeMarco Murray reversed field and sprinted around right end for the first down, sliding just before the sideline with the Cowboys running out the clock during their win at Tennessee. The play in the fourth quarter Sunday said a lot about Murray and the Cowboys' sudden fascination with the running game. It was his career-high 27th carry, which means the Cowboys...

Grade Day: Much better performance in Week 2 from the St. Louis Rams

After a disappointing loss to the Vikings last week, where every facet of the Rams game needed to improve, the Rams desperately needed to leave Tampa Bay with a win to remain relevant in the ever-competitive NFC West. As I said last week, the first thing the Rams needed to do in order to earn a W against the Bucs, was to show up in the trenches. Show up they did. The Rams didn...

Titans' defense 'embarrassing' against Cowboys

On the first play of the game Sunday, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo turned around and stuffed the ball against the belly of DeMarco Murray, who plowed straight ahead for nine yards. It was the kind of play — even though the Cowboys didn't score on their initial drive — that proved to be a tone-setter. One week after suffocating Jamaal Charles and the Chiefs' offense...

Dallas Cowboys crush Titans on both sides of the ball

Dallas, TX- The Dallas Cowboys will have a victory Monday after their convincing 26-10 win over the Tennessee Titans at LP Field.

Cowboys start road trip beating Titans 26-10

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) DeMarco Murray is giving the Dallas Cowboys the ability to run over opponents, at least when he holds onto the ball. Murray fumbled on his third carry of the game and wound up running for 167 yards and a touchdown Sunday, helping the Cowboys beat the Tennessee Titans 26-10 in their home opener.

Dallas 26, Tennessee 10: A Successful Run

DeMarco Murray has franchise marks for rushing yards and rushing attempts after two weeks in a season. As expected, much of the talk this week centered on what was wrong with Tony Romo’s head. Other talk focused on the Dallas defense. Many thought the Tennessee Titans would repeat their efforts from their week 1 win over Kansas City and give the Cowboys all sorts of trouble. (Admittedly...

Dallas Cowboys: Defense manhandles Titans in 26-10 victory

Through two weeks, the Dallas Cowboys’ (1-1) season is playing out very much like The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. They were all Hyde last week in a frustrating, sloppy, ill-played loss to the San Francisco 49ers. But, after a dominating 26-10 victory, it appears that, for at least one week, Dallas has left their Hyde behind. The Titans (1-1), on the other hand, entered...

Titans stifled in 26-10 loss to Cowboys

The Tennessee Titans dropped to 1-1 after falling to the Dallas Cowboys 26-10 in their home opener at LP Field today. The contest was virtually a mirror image of last week’s encouraging Titans win against the Kansas City Chiefs, in a number of areas. The similarities ran beyond just the 26-10 score. This time it was the Titans that failed to establish anything in the passing game...
