After reviewing the Cowboys' 19-13 loss to the Atlanta Falcons
on Sunday night, we offer up some thoughts on what we've seen and heard.
Here's our weekly Random Thoughts.
1. It looks like DeMarco Murray
won't play this week against the Philadelphia Eagles
, and if that's the case it means Felix Jones
will get the start again. But after watching Jones rumble for 39 yards on nine carries, it should be worth noting Lance Dunbar
(North Texas) picked up more carries as the No. 3 back over No. 2 back Phillip Tanner
. Dunbar carried eight times for 26 yards and Tanner had just one carry Sunday night. Coach Jason Garrett said Tanner's special teams duties pushed the Cowboys to give more carries to Dunbar. It was a smart move, but maybe Dunbar should start at Philadelphia. It's not like Jones has torn up opposing defenses. Maybe moving Dunbar to the starting role could give the Cowboys a change of pace necessary for a weak running game. Dunbar seems shiftier and quicker than Jones.
