    The giddiness over Demarco Murray's record setting rushing day has yet to crest. While I chart how the Cowboys ran so effectively yesterday, the contest offers a good opportunity to discuss how the Cowboys try to run.

    The Cowboys, like most NFL teams are a zone blocking team. They did not get the attention for their attack that say, Mike Shanahan's Broncos and his current Redskins teams do, perhaps because they don't run as much bootleg passes to counter the zone runs, but the Cowboys run the same inside and outside zones that teams like Washington do.
