IRVING (AP)  The Dallas Cowboys have pulled off quite a midseason transformation.

No longer are they a team that will only go as far as Tony Romo throws. No longer are they trying to pull out victories late in the fourth quarter.

Dallas has turned into a balanced club that can break games open early, then stay in control, all because of the emergence of a single player: rookie running back DeMarco Murray.

Since a hamstring injury to starter Felix Jones forced Murray to take on a bigger role, the third-round pick from Oklahoma has averaged 150 yards per game and the mere threat of him getting the ball has defenses jumping. Dallas has gone 3-1 in that span, moving within a game of first place in the NFC East.
