Choice to the rescue

Marion Barber was inactive, resting his injured quadriceps. Then, Felix Jones hurt his left knee in the third quarter. That left the Cowboys with one healthy running back -- Tashard Choice.

Choice had 82 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries -- a 4.6 yards per carry average -- and caught four passes for 36 yards. The Cowboys had their second consecutive 200-yard rushing game, running for 212 on 32 tries.

"That's the name of the ball game," Choice said. "You don't get many opportunities in this league, especially being a third-string running back. When you get the chance you have to be ready to step up. I prepare myself to do that, and I thank God that I did."
