Cowboys' DeMarco Murray thinks he ran well

The Dallas Cowboys ran for an embarrassing 36 yards on 9 rushes against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Out of those nine rushes, only eight were actually called running plays.

“I thought for the most part when I was given the opportunity, I thought I did well,” said Murray. “Obviously, I’m not in control of that so I got to continue to worry about myself and control what I can control. The most important thing is we got the win, so at the end of the day, that’s all that matters.”

Murray did run well on the surface when you look at the stats. On four carries he ran for 31 yards, an average of 7.8 yards per carry. Take out that 27-yard run and he ran 3 times for four yards. That is with a defense expecting pass every play. Of course, 3 carries isn’t a large enough sample size to determine how well they could have run.

“Nah. After seeing the film, we had some success running the ball,” Murray said. “Like I said, Romo had a great day passing the ball. There were definitely some opportunities to run it out there but it just didn’t go that way.”

Murray was frustrated after the Kansas City Chiefs game when they rushed for a total of 37 yards as a team, but he isn’t this time around.

“Wins — that definitely takes a lot of stress out of it,” he said. “As long as we are winning I’m fine about it.”
