The Dallas Cowboys are on their way, if the Tennessee Titans do not come back, to picking up their first win of the season. The Cowboys are getting a strong effort from running back DeMarco Murray.
As the game is nearing halftime, Murray has 115 rushing yards on 17 carries. He longest carry, at the moment, is for 22-yards and he has a touchdown.
The last time he had a 100 rushing yards in the first half, he had a career game. Will he be able to keep this up in the second half? Time will tell.
In 2011, Murray had a career-high 253 rushing yards against the St. Louis Rams. On October 23rd in a 34-7 win, he had 25 carries for the career mark, and averaged 10.1 yards per rush.
In the first half today, he is averaging 6.8 yards per rush. He hasn’t broke 200 yards since that day three years ago, and had a season-high 175 yards last season, also against the Rams.
