PHILADELPHIA—While fantasy football owners scrambled to pick up DeMarco Murray, the Philadelphia Eagles watched the rookie running back put on quite a show.
Murray raced into the record books in just his sixth game with the Dallas Cowboys, rushing for 253 yards in a victory over St. Louis last Sunday. His performance was the ninth-best in NFL history, and left many wondering DeMarco Who?
Not the Eagles.
They were on a bye, so some players and coaches saw Murray run all over the Rams on television. The rest got a heavy dose of No. 29 on film this week.
