When you think of the 2013 Dallas Cowboys’ offense, chances are you think of Tony Romo, Dez Bryant, Miles Austin and of course, Jason Witten.
The common thread between those four players is the passing game, and for good reason. Romo, as inconsistent as he can be, is a tremendous quarterback when he’s on, and Bryant, Austin and Witten are exceptional targets.
While it could be easy to get caught up in Dallas’ passing game, let’s take a few moments to focus on the running attack. The Cowboys’ running game may not get the attention it once did, and much of that may have to do with the fact that their No. 1 back, DeMarco Murray, has struggled to stay healthy.
Murray played in 13 games in 2011, and only appeared in 10 in 2012. Still, he’s totaled 1,646 yards and six touchdowns in those limited experiences.
When Murray is healthy, he’s a great running back, and for all intents and purposes, he should be ready to go this Sunday at Arrowhead.
