253 yards? The Cowboys single-game rushing record? Welcome to the NFL DeMarco Murray!

Thought we could use a new thread since KD's excellent re-cap below is starting to fill up. So use this to talk about the Cowboys win, the World Series game or Sunday Night Football as the Saints are murdering the Colts right  now.

My brief 2 cents on the game: The Rams defense was last in the league against the run, but that doesn't detract from the effectiveness of the Cowboys run game on Sunday. DeMarco Murray was a revelation, he was definitely in beast-mode, never going down on first contact, and sometimes not on second contact or third contact. Of course, the Rams tackling was absurdly poor, but again, you put up 253 yards in a NFL game and you've done something special.

Oddly, one of the things that made me the happiest in the game was the goal line stand at the end. Up 34-7, it's easy for a defense to relax, but Rob Ryan doesn't relax. And neither do his charges. Kudos on that closing stand.

Anyway, feel free to chatter about the 'Boys, the NFL or even the baseball game.
