Murray has fourth career 100-yard game, going for 109 in second half

The Cowboys opened the season believing they would be able to hold leads better than last season because they had a better running game. DeMarco Murray proved them right Wednesday night.

Murray had only 20 yards on eight carries in the first half. He finished the game with 129 yards on 19 carries.

Dallas blew five fourth-quarter leads last year. Murray made sure that wasn’t going to happen against the Giants.

His 48-yard run set up a Dan Bailey field goal and a 17-10 lead, and he later had a 15-yard run to the New York 14-yard line that helped the Cowboys go up 24-10.

It was Murray’s fourth career 100-yard game in only his 14th game.

Murray had his first season ended prematurely by a fractured right ankle against the Giants in a December home game. He finished 2011 with 897 yards and two touchdowns on 164 carries.
