2014 DRAFT GUIDE
Cowboys lead Redskins 7-3 after 1st quarter

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - DeMarco Murray ran 4 yards for a touchdown to cap a long opening drive for the Dallas Cowboys, who led the Washington Redskins 7-3 after the first quarter Sunday night.

Murray's run ended a 10-play, 80-yard drive that took more than 6 minutes. It was the fifth time in six games this season that the Cowboys scored on their first possession.

Washington, coming off a bye week, responded by going 78 yards on 13 plays in more than 7 1/2 minutes before settling for Kai Forbath's 20-yard field goal after Robert Griffin III came up short on a third-and-9 scramble.

When the teams played in the season finale last December at Washington, it was a winner-take-all game for the NFC East title. The Redskins won that one, part of a seven-game winning streak during which they beat the Cowboys twice.

Washington lost its first three games this season, but won at Oakland before its bye week. Griffin, returning to Texas where he won a Heisman Trophy at Baylor, had said he felt rejuvenated after the break.

Griffin threw a 19-yard pass on his first snap and ran for 15 yards on the next play. He got stopped at the 2 on his third-down scramble. He was 3-of-4 passing for 45 yards on the opening drive, the lone incompletion a drop by running back Alfred Morris that likely would have been a touchdown.

Tony Romo was coming off the first 500-yard passing game in Cowboys history, coming in a 51-48 loss at home last week to Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.

Murray had an 11-yard run on the first play of the game, and pushed in for the touchdown.

Romo was 4-of-5 passing for 50 yards on the opening drive.
