DeMarco Murray had 24 carries for 149 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 4 win over the Saints.
It's his fourth straight game with at least 100 yards and a touchdown. The Cowboys offensive line continues to open up massive running lanes for Murray, and he's averaging a dominant 5.4 YPC. Murray is on pace for 2,408 total yards and 20 touchdowns this season. He has No. 1 overall running back potential.
Drew Brees completed 32-of-44 passes for 340 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in Sunday night's loss to the Cowboys.
The Cowboys shut down Brees in the first half, with both of his touchdown passes not coming until the fourth quarter. His interception was a tipped pass to Cowboys LB Justin Durant. Brees spread the ball to nine different receivers, and hit Jimmy Graham and Josh Hill for his two scores. He's on pace for 4,812 yards, 28 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions through four games. Brees will be a top-three option against the Bucs in Week 5.
Tony Romo completed 22-of-29 passes for 262 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday night's 38-17 win over the Saints.
He added three scrambles for 23 yards. It was Romo's best game to date. He connected with Terrance Williams for two first-half touchdowns and later hit Dez Bryant on a back-shoulder fade in the fourth quarter. Romo still struggled on his deep accuracy, and wasn't able to get anything going downfield with Bryant. Through four games, Romo is on pace for 3,636 yards with a 28:16 TD:INT ratio. He'll be a low-end QB1 in Week 5 against Texans.
Chip Kelly absolved LeSean McCoy of blame for his 29 carries and 39 yards over the last two weeks.
"We got whooped up front," Kelly said after the loss to the 49ers. "We're not very good up front right now. We've got a lot of guys banged up. That's not an excuse, it's just the reality." The Eagles will get RT Lane Johnson back for Week 5 against the Rams, but C Jason Kelce and LG Evan Mathis aren't coming back anytime soon. The Eagles need to figure out a way to stop penetration in the backfield and get McCoy going north-south. We're confident Kelly will find a way to do that.
Cowboys SLB Bruce Carter left Sunday night's Week 4 game against the Saints with a right quad strain.
He's done for the night. Carter had six tackles and two pass deflections before exiting. Kyle Wilber will replace him in base sets.
Updating an earlier item, the Associated Press' Terry Collins has deleted his report that the Raiders are firing coach Dennis Allen.
The wording of Mr. Collins' tweet was bizarre, but we went forward since he was a reporter for the Associated Press. There is still a strong chance Allen is fired during the Raiders' Week 5 bye, but it has not happened yet. The Raiders don't depart London until Monday morning. It's unlikely any decisions will be finalized before they arrive back in Oakland.
CBS' Jason La Canfora confirms Mark Ingram (hand) remains on pace to return following the Week 6 bye.
Ingram was running like one of the best backs in the league at the time of his injury. He'll immediately resume first-string power duties upon his return, sending Khiry Robinson into a bench role. Owners should be trying to stash Ingram if possible.
Ahmad Bradshaw left the stadium Sunday with a walking boot on his left foot as a precaution.
It's nothing to really worry about, but remember that Bradshaw's feet and ankles have been incredibly troublesome throughout his career. It's a big reason why Trent Richardson will continue to be involved plenty. Expect Bradshaw to be limited a bit in practice this week before suiting up against the Ravens.
