Murray, Romo carry Dallas Cowboys past New York Giants

DeMarco Murray and Tony Romo on Sunday carried the Dallas Cowboys ahead of the New York Giants with a score of 31-21.

With his seventh consecutive 100-yard rushing game to start a season, Murray broke Brown's more than five-decade-old mark. Romo also played a key role in helping his team defeat the Giants by throwing three touchdown passes.

While Murray finished with his seventh rushing touchdown of this season on a 1-yard plunge, Romo had a fourth scoring pass upturned on replay. Murray outshined Brown by finishing with 128 yards on the ground. Brown hit the century mark in the 1958-season’s first six games for Cleveland.

With an interception, Romo was 17 out of 23 for 279 yards. Dez Bryant concluded with a season-high 151 yards receiving, while tight end Gavin Escobar had his initial two-touchdown game.

Eli Manning had three touchdown passes for the Giants, who have suffered losses of road games to the top two teams of NFC East in two weeks in a row.

Larry Donnell, tight end for New York Giants, had seven catches for 90 yards but fumbled two times. The first one established a Cowboys touchdown for a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter of the game, while the second paved way fro the Cowboys’ win in the final minute.

The Dallas Cowboys (6-1) are off to their best start since 2007, when the team was the top seed in the NFC before losing to the New York Giants in their first playoff game.
