LANDOVER, Md -- DeMarco Murray’s ascension has been nothing short of amazing given his franchise-record 253-yard effort against St. Louis and 100-yard days against Seattle and Buffalo, but you might have learned more about him Sunday against Washington.
Murray ran 25 times for 73 tough yards. They were so tough that Murray called it the most physical game he had ever played.
“I’ll give him this, he runs hard even if there’s nothing there for him,” right guard Kyle Kosier said. “He’s going to hit it and get two or three yards, which he did [Sunday]. We didn’t pick up a lot of stuff up front and kind of made it hard for him.”
Coach Jason Garrett liked Murray’s perseverance against the Redskins.
“That’s what you have to do, you have to keep playing,” Garrett said. “They have a good run defense and have been for a long time. They’re committed to stopping the run. They did a nice job. DeMarco is what we’ve seen him to be throughout the year, which is, ‘Hey, I’m going to do my job, keep banging way, have the right demeanor.’ … It’s not always going to be easy. You’ve just got to fight through the adversity.
