DeMarco Murray rushes for 253 yards; Cowboys top Rams 34-7

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - DeMarco Murray ran for a

franchise-record 253 yards, including a 91-yard touchdown that's

the second-longest in club history, to lead the Dallas Cowboys to a

34-7 victory over the ailing St. Louis Rams on Sunday.

In the start of a football-baseball doubleheader between teams

from Dallas-Fort Worth and St. Louis, the Cowboys (3-3)

emphatically ended their stretch of 11 straight games decided by

four points or less.

The Rams (0-6) were without quarterback Sam Bradford and were

averaging the fewest points in the league even with him. They also

had by far the worst run defense in the NFL, allowing 163 yards per

game.

Quarterback A.J. Feeley was mediocre in his first start since

2007 and Steven Jackson ran for 70 yards and a touchdown. St. Louis

also saw right tackle Jason Smith and backup defensive tackle

Darell Scott carted off with head injuries.
