This is one of those weeks when it feels really great to get to write for the Silver and Blue Report. The only problem I have with sharing my thoughts on Sunday’s game against the Bills is where to start with the praise.
I guess I will start with DeMarco Murray. In the last four games, he racked up 601 rushing yards, which is the most by a Cowboys back and fifth all time by an NFL rookie. I think we are past the point of calling this a fluke – DeMarco Murray is the back for the future success of the Cowboys. His greatest contribution Sunday was probably the 61 yards he put up in the second half on the ground. He is helping the Cowboys to close out games. If they had that ability earlier in the season, the Cowboys would almost certainly be looking at 8-1 right now in the standings.
I don’t exactly know what has happened to Tony Romo lately, but I pray that he keeps doing whatever it is. Romo was deadly accurate, going 23 of 26 for 270 yards and 3 touchdowns. He read the blitz packages extremely well and never panicked. His O line stepped up by not allowing a sack for the second straight week.
The Dallas defense continued to impress by allowing only one score with an 80 yard touchdown drive in the 2nd quarter. The defense’s four takeaways sealed the fate of the Bills by keeping their offense, which had scored over 30 points in half of their games, on the bench watching the game.
