IRVING, Texas -- As an act of appreciation for his torrid start, Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray purchased an iMac desktop computer for each of the team's five starting offensive linemen. The computers -- valued at $1,300 each and equipped with 21.5-inch monitors -- awaited the linemen in front of their lockers when they arrived Wednesday at the Valley Ranch practice facility.

Cowboys defense good enough where it counts

IRVING, Texas - No one has said the Dallas Cowboys have a great defense, which makes sense because they don't. Then again, their offense is so good this defense doesn't have to be great. It just needs to be solid -- and it is. Focusing on how many yards the Cowboys allow per play (6.1) or their puny sack totals (6.0) is a poor way to determine this unit's effectiveness. We know it's a flawed unit -- it has been that way since Day 1 of training camp -- so it's important to understand what defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli is trying to accomplish.

Redskins Brian Orakpo tweets out desire to beat Cowboys from hospital room

Scott Linehan consistently feeding DeMarco Murray, Dez Bryant

IRVING, Texas - Although Dez Bryant and DeMarco Murray have played together since 2011, the Cowboys’ win over the New York Giants marked only the third time each surpassed the 100-yard mark in the same game. Two of the three have occurred this season -- and it’s going to occur considerably more often as long as Scott Linehan calls the plays. That’s because Linehan believes in getting the ball to his best players. Murray carried 28 times for 128 yards, and Bryant had nine catches for 151 yards against the Giants.

Tight end James Hanna, complementary players value their roles on Cowboys

IRVING, Texas -- Tight end James Hanna has played 135 snaps, starting six of seven games this season. He has yet to catch a pass. Actually, Tony Romo has directed only one pass Hanna’s way -- and that was three games ago against New Orleans - but Jason Garrett says the tight end plays a valuable role for the Dallas Cowboys. Hanna spends much of his playing time as a blocking tight end, which should probably be considered impressive considering he’s just 249 pounds.

Cowboys' record feels good, but players know ride can stop

IRVING, Texas – After the first seven games of Barry Church’s rookie year, the Dallas Cowboys were 1-6 and on their way to 1-7. Wade Phillips was fired at the midway point of that season, replaced by Jason Garrett, and the Cowboys finished 6-10. Seven games into Church’s fifth season, the Cowboys are 6-1 and hold the best record in the NFL. Before this stretch, the best Church experienced was 7-4 in 2011. “I’ve never been 6-1, so I would say it feels amazing to me,” Church said in the locker room after the Cowboys beat the New York Giants.
