Latest Demarco Murray Items
Much of this year Redskins fans have been unhappy with Alfred Morris' carries in the 2nd half of games. After last week's loss to Green Bay, Dallas fans feel the same way.
Jamaal Charles didn't even need a 51-point fantasy game, but it helps _ the Kansas City running back is clearly fantasy football's 2013 MVP.

Not until Rob Jackson wrapped his hands around another Tony Romo "oops" Sunday night could Washington Redskins fans begin to savor the moment.
Tony Romo threw 13 interceptions in the first seven games and has just two since. He was booed lustily in two mistake-filled home losses, then broke Troy Aikman's franchise record for touchdowns in the most efficient outing of his career.
