    ARLINGTON, Texas -- This was the type of game you're supposed to win, no matter where you are as a team. The Cowboys beat up the winless St. Louis Rams on Sunday afternoon, 34-7.

    [IMG][IMG]The Cowboys dominated on defense and ran with power behind rookie DeMarco Murray.

    What it means: The Cowboys ended two streaks on Sunday. They ended a two-game losing streak and an 11-game stretch where games were decided by four points or fewer. It was good for the Cowboys to have an easy game for a change, and with a new right guard (Montrae Holland) and running back (Murray), Dallas had few problems taking care of business.

    Rookie's record day: Rookie running back Murray rushed for franchise-record 253 yards on 25 carries. Murray had a 91-yard touchdown run, the second longest in franchise history. He set the record on a run to the left side in the fourth quarter, and when he came out Dez Bryant was the first player to greet him. It was a magical day for Murray, who didn't even start the game.
