In 2011, a rookie Murray ran for 253 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries at home against St. Louis. The Dallas Cowboys won 34-7 that day, as the Rams were completely overwhelmed and outmatched.
Two years later—and after a ton of roster turnover—the Rams were only marginally better, losing 31-7 in Week 3. They were worse against Dallas than they had been in either of their first two games, and it was evident that a comeback wasn’t in the cards as in weeks past.
The Rams outscored their opponents 28-7 in the fourth quarter en route to 1-1 before meeting the Cowboys, who shut them out in the final frame.
St. Louis was in trouble early, though: At halftime, the Rams had gained 18 yards from scrimmage.
Dallas had 12 first downs.
