I certainly respect their defense, but being 20th in the league against the run is not quite solid.
Problem is the Cowboys haven't been able to run the ball against anyone but the Giants and a good chunk of those rushing yards came on one big play by Murray where he turned a loss into a big gain. The Cowboys rank 29th in rushing. Just because other teams have been able to run the ball on the Ravens doesn't mean the Cowboys will. We'll have to see.
