The Cowboys are playing wihout a fullback for the first time in a long time, instead focusing on the two tight-end set. DeMarco Murray argues that it may actually be easier to run out of a one-back set at times, as defenses may not bring in extra defenders to the line quite as often.

"It’s a little different, but it’s something I’m definitely looking forward to," he said. "I love running out of different personnel. Vick was a great fullback and I wish him the best. It was a tough deal, but this is definitely something I look forward to."

"No," he said. "I just got to continue to focus on this playbook and continue playing with confidence. If it pans out that way, then it pans out that way. I’m not looking to that."
