A week after a disappointing 17-16 loss in Kansas City, the Cowboys' offense looked unstoppable on Sunday, piling up 396 yards of total offense while the defense kept St. Louis to just 232. Tony Romo was lights out, throwing for 210 yards and three scores with zero interceptions.
His first score came on a two-yard pass to Dez Bryant, who got away with what appeared to be a push-off of Cortland Finnegan as he rose up to grab the ball on a fade to the back corner of the end zone. It was an otherwise uneventful day for the Cowboys' star receiver, who finished with just 38 receiving yards a week after putting up 141 yards and a score against the Chiefs.
DeMarco Murray came into the game averaging just 3.5 yards per carry through two games, but exploded for 175 yards and a touchdown on the ground.
The Rams, meanwhile, where anemic on the ground, rushing for just 26 yards.
Fantasy Studs and Duds
Tony Romo didn't put up a ton of yards with 218, but tossed three touchdowns to highlight a big day. DeMarco Murray finally broke out with 175 yards and a score.
Sam Bradford, meanwhile, thew for 240 yards but found the endzone only once.
Did they cover?
Dallas opened as three-point favorites, meaning they covered easily with their 24-point win.
