The Dallas Cowboys Must Exploit San Diego’s Porous Run Defense
In 2013, Murray has rushed the ball for 286 yards and a touchdown on 58 carries for an average of 4.9 yards per carry. He has also become one of quarterback Tony Romo’s safety valves underneath where he has hauled in 16 receptions for 116 yards.
On Sunday, he will face a horrid Chargers defense that is giving up about 130 rushing yards per game and ranks 31st in the NFL in total yards allowed per game. The fact that San Diego is not very good against the pass either means that if the Cowboys execute; Murray could be in for a big game.
I expect that the Chargers will try and double Dez Bryant most of if not all game long, so that means that the Cowboys offensive line must dominate in the trenches. As I said earlier, the Chargers aren’t very good against the run, but that’s not to say they won’t bring their A-game, or that their coaching staff hasn’t made adjustments to try and contain the Cowboys running game.
Another nugget to throw in there is that inside linebacker Manto Te’o will be making his Chargers debut on Sunday. He’s a good football player, but we haven’t seen much from him since he injured his foot on Aug. 8 in the Chargers’ preseason opener. I expect that the Cowboys will try to exploit that matchup early and often in an attempt to see what the rookie linebacker can bring to the table.
