Dallas Earns First Win of the Year With 26-10 Victory Over Tennessee
The Dallas Cowboys offense looked like a well-oiled machine on Sunday, but not in the passing game. Running back Demarco Murray (pictured on the right) torched the Tennessee Titan's defense as he rushed for more than 100 yards in the first half, along with a touchdown, to help Dallas earn their first win of the 2014 season. "It's still early," Murray said. "We still have a lot of work to do.... We're headed in the right way, though."
Tony Romo easily shook off his three interceptions in the season-opening loss to San Francisco, as he was 19 of 29 for 176 yards and a touchdown with Murray running the ball so well. Murray finished the day with 169 yards on 29 carries which gave him an average of 5.8 yards per rush.
"DeMarco ran really well," Dallas coach Jason Garrett said. "He ran hard and he ran downhill. When you can do that, drive the football again, again and again and control the football and control the game it gives you a great chance to win."
Little slowed down for the Cowboys as they held the ball for 41 minutes, 11 seconds and finished with a 368-314 edge in total offense, delighting their many fans who at one point chanted "Let's Go Cowboys" as Dallas ran out the clock.
Dallas will try and build off this win as they head into week three. They face off against the St. Louis Rams as they stay on the road for the second straight week. Kickoff for that game is set for noon this Sunday and you can see all the action for that game on FOX.
