With Felix Jones inactive for the Dallas Cowboys' game against the St. Louis Rams, rookie DeMarco Murray took full advantage of the carries he received.
His first carry of the game went for 91 yards and a touchdown, and that pretty much set the pace for the rest of the game. This was the first time that we really got to see Murray play for an extended period of time, and he was very impressive.
He easily went over 100 rushing yards in the first half and finished the game with 253 rushing yards and a touchdown. Even though we didn't see very much of his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield, we all know that he is capable of doing that, and he should become more of a dual-threat option over the next few weeks.
Even when Jones comes back from his injury, I wouldn't be surprised if Murray continues to get the majority of the carries for the Cowboys. This was absolutely a breakout game for Murray, and he should build on that success for the rest of the season.
