Cowboys banking on Murray's health

IRVING, Texas -- Through two games, Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is on pace for 408 carries this season. It's too early to say Murray will challenge Larry Johnson's NFL regular-season record of 416 carries for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2006. It's probably too early to say Murray will push for Emmitt Smith's franchise record of 377 in 1995. But Murray's 51 carries are the most he has had in a two-game span in his career, and he has never had more than 217 carries in a season.

Murray 'best running back in the world'

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Maybe DeMarco Murray should be considered a candidate for the Dallas Cowboys' defensive MVP award. After all, the defense’s job is a heck of a lot easier when they get to stand on the sideline and watch Murray move the chains. "He’s the best running back in the world to me," safety Barry Church said with a big smile. "That boy’s milking that clock." The Cowboys lead the league in time of possession, controlling the ball for 36:18 per game.

Cowboys Game Plan? Get The Ball To DeMarco Murray And Dez Bryant

The Cowboys decided to simplify things and get the ball in the hands of their best players on offense. The game plan was all DeMarco and Dez. The Dallas Cowboys were facing the possibility of going 0-2 on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. There were questions about how the team would bounce back from the opening loss.

Dallas Cowboys @ Tennessee Titans: Cowboys Dominate Early, Win 26-10

The defense was good, especially in the first half. DeMarco Murray was unstoppable. Dan Bailey was dead on. And the early demise of the Dallas Cowboys is not happening the way so many thought. The Dallas Cowboys needed to go into Tennessee to play the Titans and show they were not the team that got beaten up in the first game of the season. That was accomplished. The defense showed up in a major way in the first half, and came very close to closing things out by halftime. They held the Titans to a paltry 68 yards and two first downs, making Jake Locker look absolutely hopeless. DeMarco...

DeMarco Murray among NFL's best backs?

IRVING, Texas -- Adrian Peterson and LeSean McCoy carried on a long-distance argument this summer over their claims as the NFL’s best running back.  DeMarco Murray’s name doesn’t come up in those conversations.
