Cowboys love run game, but do they trust it?
Arlington — Their actions might not show it, but the Dallas Cowboys are coming around to believing in their ground game.
“We love running the ball,” offensive coordinator Bill Callahan said.
Over the past four games, the Cowboys have averaged 145.8 yards, twice what they averaged in the first 10 games.
But do the Cowboys trust their running game? With last week’s game against Green Bay on the line, quarterback Tony Romo put the ball in the air and was intercepted twice in the last 2:46.
It left running back DeMarco Murray furious that he and the offensive line did not get a chance to close the game out, raised more questions about Callahan and coach Jason Garrett’s commitment to the run and gave Romo’s critics another reason to question his late-game credentials.
