    Dallas Cowboys Running Game Struggles without Fullback Fiammetta

    by Steve Mullenax


    Who knew a third year cast away from the Carolina Panthers could make such an important impact to the Dallas Cowboys’ running game this year? But making an impact is the basic job description for a fullback. And the Cowboys’ surely struggled without their fullback, Tony Fiammetta, on Sunday.

    Fiammetta, who was dealing with an illness last week, was ruled out for Sunday’s narrow overtime victory against the Washington Redskins. Dallas tried to fill his position with TE John Phillips, but clearly that didn’t work well. DeMarco Murray ran for just 73 yards on 25 carries. That’s an average of only 2.9 yards a carry, Murray’s worst per carry average in a game so far this year.
