Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray has been a beast this season. He has carried the team to a 6-2 record.

He has rushed for 8 straight 100-yard rushing yardage games. Today, with quarterback Tony Romo, he’s expected to get 20-to-30 carries against the Arizona Cardinals.

The Cardinals have not allowed a 100 yards rushing since last season. This season, the Cards rush defense is averaging 77.9 yards per game.

The Cowboys are averaging 160.5 rushing yards per season.

Arizona has only allowed one carry of longer than 20 yards this season, which came in Week 1. Since that time, they have not allowed a run of 16 yards.

Murray has nine rushes of 20 yards or more.

The Cardinals have only allowed one rusher to have a 100-yard game since the beginning of the 2013 season. That came in Week 6 of last season when San Francisco 49ers back Frank Gore had 25 carries for 101 yards.
