    ARLINGTON, Texas – DeMarco Murray scored for the first time since last November, snapping a nine-game streak without a touchdown by a Cowboys running back.

    And that’s about the only thing that went right for the Dallas running game Sunday.

    “We’ve just got to do a better job running the ball,” Murray said. “All day long, it was tough. There wasn’t a lot of creases up there. When there was, there was two really, really bad plays by me. I got tripped up, let a guy arm tackle me. It definitely could have been two home runs for me, and it didn’t happen.”

    I love D. Murray. I didn't think he got any help, and he's putting a lot of the blame on himself for missing two "homeruns". Isn't that leadership?

    I think Murray is more mentally tough than anyone on offense

    Tough to run without lanes

    Tough to run when you trip over the line of scrimmage and fall down. He wasn't on his game today either.

    Payton/Sanders/Smith couldn't of done squat with that line.

    Use hyperbole much? Sanders never had an O-line and Murray is NOWHERE close to his talent BTW.

    Actually it's tough to run the when you have to juke your own lineman & your Offensive Coordinator gives away your running the ball every time by only running out of heavy sets. Where are the spread out draws we've had success with in years past?

    Who are you? Which game were you looking at? Murray did a great job of NOT throwing that horrible offensive line under the bus.

    Welcome to Dallas, DeMarco. News flash.. its not going to get much easier to run the ball anytime soon, so better buckle down and get used to it. Just ask your pal Felix.

    He's doing a good job so far this year behind yet another crappy Dallas OL.

    They're both very tough football players. I absolutely LOVE the way Murray runs.

    Murray is tough. Romo is tough. Two great players to help lead our offense.

    More than anything Garrett has to stop with the down-syndrome play calling. We couldn't run because Garrett kept calling the same run-up-the-middle that didn't work the first 3 times. I'm starting to think Garrett isn't all that smart at all. What happened to screens? How about run left or right a few times. /smh
