Cowboys Vs. Rams Score: Cowboys On Top 20-7 Behind DeMarco Murray's Huge Game

DeMarco Murray has rushed for 187 yards and the Dallas Cowboys lead the St. Louis Rams 20-7 at the end of the third quarter of their Week 7 match up. The Cowboys tacked on a 51 yard field goal by Dan Bailey to extend their lead. 

Despite the big numbers on the ground, the Cowboys have failed to find a rhythm with their passing game. Tony Romo has pretty ordinary numbers through three quarters completing 12 of 22 passes for 136 yards and a touchdown. Dez Bryant has three receptions for 60 yards while Jason Witten has five catches for 35 yards and a touchdown. 

Murray is the story of the game after a 91 yard first quarter touchdown that put the Cowboys ahead early. He has now piled up 20 carries in the game for 187 yards. 

A.J. Feeley got the start for the injured Sam Bradford and has completed 14 of 20 passes for 121 yards and an interception. Stephen Jackson has a 40 yard run included in his 16 carry for 60 yard effort thus far.
