4-game winning streak for Cowboys-Dolphins winner
Romo’s recent success has been sparked by his return to good health and the running of rookie DeMarco Murray. He has 747 yards with six games left, putting him well on his way to the best rushing total by a Dallas runner since Emmitt Smith’s heyday.
However, Murray is coming off his least productive game since taking over. Against Washington, he had 73 yards on 25 carries, a 2.9 average. And he’ll be going against a defense that’s allowed 72.7 yards rushing during its winning streak.
Miami’s running game is getting cranked up, too, thanks to Reggie Bush. He has four touchdowns the last three games; it was four games ago, when the Dolphins were 0-6, that he proclaimed “this team stinks,” and Bell shot back “he stinks.”
Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan said he thinks the difference in production stems from Miami offensive coordinator Brian Daboll increasing Bush’s workload. He reached 13 carries only once the first six games; he’s had at least that many the last four games. He’s also had at least three receptions in each of those games after a long stretch of one or two per game.
“He’s featuring a way to get this guy the ball to do the things that he does best and to get him out in space,” Ryan said. “He’s (tough) out there, everybody knows it.”
Only one team will leave Cowboys Stadium on Sunday with a four-game winning streak. That team also will have three wins in 12 days, and no more games for 10 days.
“When I was in Dallas, I thought the three games in (12) days can change your fortunes fast one way or the other,” said Miami coach Tony Sparano, who was with the Cowboys from 2003-07. “We talk to the team about opportunity _ and we have a really good opportunity.”
