Prediction: Cowboys keep it rolling

IRVING, Texas -- This game will be more difficult than people believe. But the Dallas Cowboys are built for “dirty” games. Not dirty in the sense of temperament, but dirty in terms of how they will need to gain yards. DeMarco Murray has been able to handle the dirty work the last two games against the Seattle Seahawks and New York Giants while also putting up eight runs of 10 yards or more. Of note: Murray does not have a 100-yard game against the Redskins in five tries.

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.
