Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs SF (22 / 118 / 1 rush, 4 / 3 / 25 / 0 rec)

Murray was one of the few highlights for the Dallas offense as a consistent chain-mover when drives were successful. Even with an early deficit, the play-calling was more balanced than recent seasons as Murray saw 16 carries in the first half for nearly 100 yards. Murray's pad level was outstanding and he regularly churned out yards after contact. An early fumble, returned for a touchdown, was the lone blemish for Murray against the 49ers. In the second half, understandably, Dallas took to the air and Murray saw six carries. He converted his goal line attempt late in the third quarter to round out his stat line. No other Dallas running back saw a carry this week.

2014 Week 2 vs TEN (29 / 167 / 1 rush, 2 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)

For the second straight week Murray was the centerpiece of the Dallas offense and had high-efficiency on high volume. The Cowboys backup running backs had 14 carries because of the lopsided score as the second half progressed. Murray had only one reception, but that was due to the subbing out after repetitive strong gains and yards after contact on his 29 carries. Murray's blemishes were a fumble, his second in as many weeks, near midfield, halting a likely scoring drive and a drop on third down late in the game. Murray's combination of power and speed, in addition to his passing game prowess, has been one of the few bright spots for the Dallas offense through an uneven 1-1 start.

2014 Week 3 vs STL (24 / 100 / 1 rush, 4 / 4 / 31 / 0 rec)

Murray contributed to the 21-point early game deficit at St.Louis this week, but was also the main reason Dallas came back and won the game over the final two-and-a-half quarters; Murray fumbled on an outlet reception as Dallas squandered a scoring opportunity. Throughout the game, Murray won collisions against linebackers and secondary defenders of the Rams. On Murray's 44-yard jaunt in the second half, a quick flip and well-blocked edge fueled the open field opportunity. In short-yardage situations, Murray converted a goal line carry to get the Cowboys comeback effort started in the first half and was stuffed on third-and-one later in the game. Through three games, it is apparent that DeMarco Murray is the centerpiece of the Dallas offense regardless of game situation.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray looking to protect ball (Thu Sep 18, 06:03 PM) - Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray will return to the ball-carrying style he used in his first three seasons with the team when he lost just three fumbles. Murray has already fumbled twice in the first two games of this season while carrying the ball with his left hand. You definitely make more plays when the ball is in your outside hand, Murray said, (but) just got to be smart about it and see what happens. Cant overthink it, so Im not worried about it.

Our View: We'll see if Murray can get back to basics, stay healthy, and keep running the rock with authority. Murray rushed a career-high 29 times against the Tennessee Titans in Week 2, and his 51 carries are the most in a two-game span in his career.

Cowboys | DeMarco Murray contract looming? (Mon Sep 15, 02:26 PM) - Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray may be in talks with the team about a new contract in the near future. Chief operating officer Stephen Jones said the team wouldn't be against giving Murray a new contract and that they desire to keep him in Dallas long-term, adding that Murray has increased that desire with his play so far this season.

Our View: Murray is a top-notch running back when at full strength. His relentless running style has caused him to get banged up quite a bit during his pro career. He's missed 11 games due to various injuries over the three years he's been in the league. That will most certainly play a factor in the next contract Murray gets.
