The Dallas Cowboys looked like they abandoned the run game at one point during the Sunday loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Running back DeMarco Murray has 32 carries for 111 yards on the season. According to Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas, “the Cowboys ran the ball with Murray and Dunbar five times in the second half, zero in the fourth quarter of a close game.”

“To be honest, I don’t know how many carries we had in the second half, we didn’t run it enough we kinda go to the pass,” Murray said, via ESPN Dallas. “It’s something (the) coaches are going to have to talk about and discuss.”

Head coach Jason Garrett isn’t calling plays anymore, that responsibility falls with offensive coordinator Bill Callahan.

“Yesterday’s game, we were in some no-huddle situations for different reasons to attack the defense, to handle some of the third-down situations, to handle of the crowd noise, and we simply threw the ball too much in those situations,” Garrett said, via the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram.

However Garrett says Callahan wasn’t calling the plays in the no huddle, quarterback Tony Romo was at the line.

“In some of the no-huddle situations, he was making those calls,” Garrett said. “Again, we simply have to do a better job simply calling more runs and having more balance.”
