ST. LOUIS – It looked like the ‘Boys were on their way to an old fashioned beat down. A DeMarco Murray fumble and a Tony Romo pick six had Dallas down 21-0 to the St. Louis Rams, on the road, midway through the second quarter.
But then, the lights came on and the Cowboys staged a furious rally over the final three quarters, topping the Rams 34-31. The 21-point comeback ties the largest in franchise history, and the ‘Boys are now 2-1.
It didn’t come easily though. Dallas outscored St. Louis 34-3 to take a 34-24 lead with six minutes to play, but the Rams scored a touchdown and forced a Dallas punt to make it a game. It was Morris Claiborne, who had a bad game getting burned for two touchdowns, who sealed the deal with an interception in the final minute.
DeMarco Murray overcame his early fumble, his third of the season, to hit 100 yards for the third straight game. Romo also shook off his interception going 18 for 23 for 217 yards and a touchdown.
Now the Cowboys will come back home, looking to ride the momentum against the New Orleans Saints (1-2) next Sunday night.
