The Dallas Cowboys took charge early and defeated the St Louis Rams 31-7. There were key performances and a record-breaking performance as well.
Murray rushed for 175 yards and a touchdown two years after torching St. Louis with a franchise record as a rookie, and Tony Romo threw for three scores in a 31-7 victory Sunday. DeMarcus Ware had two sacks and broke Harvey Martin’s 30-year-old franchise record of 114.
Dallas’ defense was key.
The Rams, trying for their first 2-1 start since 2006, had just 18 yards total offense in the first half compared to 96 for Murray alone. The Cowboys had 202 yards before halftime.
Good gravy. The Rams were just a mess out there. I mean, they did try but…nah:
When the Rams finally started getting defenders around Murray at the line of scrimmage, Romo found him on the outside for a pair of catches on a drive that ended with a 2-yard run by Murray for a 17-0 lead. Murray, who had 253 yards against the Rams in 2011, went around left end before extending the ball over the goal line right on the pylon, and there was no review. His last 100-yard game was the 2012 opener, and he was coming off a 25-yard performance in a loss at Kansas City.
I guess the Rams got caught in a bush, huh? I’m so funny. Thanks to Yahoo! for the story.
