CowBuzz: SocialMedia Goes Behind The Scenes vs. Saints


The Cowboys' win over the Saints improved Dallas' 2014 record to 3-1, the first time since the 2008 team has started 3-1. The Cowboys defense held the Saints offense scoreless in the first half, marking the third time this season that they held an opposing offense scoreless in either half. The defense held San Francisco (9/7) scoreless in the second half, then held Tennessee's (9/14) offense scoreless in the first half.

After rushing for 118 yards against San Francisco (9/7), 167 yards at Tennessee (9/14), and 100 yards at St. Louis (9/21), DeMarco Murray's 149 yards allowed him to become only the third player in team history to record a streak of four consecutive games with 100 rushing yards and the first since Emmitt Smith did it twice in 1995. The other was Tony Dorsett in 1975. Murray's 534 yards through the first four games of the 2014 season are the second-most in team history. Emmitt Smith had 543 yards in 1995.

Murray had 24 carries to mark the 15th time of his career that he's had 20-or-more carries. With the win, the club improved to 14-1 when Murray has 20-or-more carries.

With three touchdown passes, Tony Romo improved his streak of consecutive games with a touchdown to 32 games – the longest streak in franchise history, the sixth-longest in NFL history and the second-longest active streak (Peyton Manning 42).

Terrance Williams had his first career multi-touchdown game, catching a six-yard touchdown in the first quarter and a 23-yard touchdown in the second quarter.

Here are some more behind the scenes sights from the game.
