Dallas Cowboys fans have a reason to beat their chest with pride this week, despite losing Dez Bryant to possibly four weeks or more. This Sunday, Dallas will take on their longtime NFC East rivals in Philadelphia [Eagles]. In the past three years, Dallas has beat the Eagles in their stadium and look forward to continuing its winning road streak. DeMarco Murray’s facing his former team, so this should be interesting to see how Philly’s running game works in favor of Murray.
If you saw the Eagle’s past matchup, Murray barely touched the field in Chip Kelly’s high-powered offense. DeMarco finished the game with a total of 30 yards (incl. rushing and receiving). Maybe Philly will loosen up its grip on DeMarco this Sunday.
One major takeaway from this past Sunday’s game vs. New York [Giants] is how our defense has remained a dominant force in winning games for us. They continually bail us out of games, in which we should have already put away. Although our offense finally stepped up in the final minute-and-a-half of the game, the defense placed us in a position for Tony Romo to lead the charge in this clutch victory.
If the Cowboys keep this intensity up, there will more excitement to cheer for in the future.
Until then, we’ll hope for a speedy recovery of Dez Bryant and a Cowboys victory in the weeks to come!
