Taylor's Take: So much for the Cowboys’ limiting DeMarco Murray’s touches once he returned after missing six games with a sprained foot. He touched the ball 27 times - 23 carries and four catches - in the 37 snaps he played. ... Murray’s return also meant more playing time for fullback Lawrence Vickers since the Cowboys spent much of the game in tradition two running back, two receiver, one tight end personnel. ... Felix Jones almost had the day off. He averaged 40.5 plays with Murray out, but was on the field considerably less in this game. He has two bad knees and practiced sparingly, so he could use some down time. ... For some reason Kevin Ogletree played more than Cole Beasley and Dwayne Harris combined and they still finished with more receptions than he did.
