Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray’s already incredible season could be even more incredible if he continues at this pace.
In addition to becoming the first player in NFL history to rush for 100 yards in each of the first eight games, thanks to a 141 yard game on the ground. Murray is at 1,054 yards at the halfway point of this season, putting him on pace for 2,108 this year. That would just break Eric Dickerson’s all-time record of 2,105 rushing yards in a season, set in 1984.
With 206 carries this season, Murray is also on pace for 412, which would be the second most in NFL history. But Murray lost yet another fumble on Monday night, giving him five lost fumbles this year. That’s the most of any player in the NFL — even more than any quarterback, even though the fumbles lost stat is usually dominated by quarterbacks.
