Just some quick thoughts here.

The Cowboys dominated the Rams, mainly behind their 294 rushing yards.  DeMarco Murray was a beast, finishing with a Cowboys record 253 yards.  He averaged over 10 YPC.  Obviously Dallas can't expect that kind of performance every week, but it was a nice change from the anemic rushing attack the Cowboys have had up until today's game.  Jason Garrett should give some serious consideration to making Murray the starting RB. 

Philip Tanner was good too, although he didn't get many carries.  But he showed the kind of hard running style the Cowboys have been lacking since Marion Barber's prime.  At this point Garrett has to feel pretty good about a Murray/Tanner combination.

Moving along...  although it didn't always look pretty, Tim Tebow found a way to do what he does best - win a football game.

Dolphins fans were on Tebow's case all day, sarcastically chanting his name and mocking him as he started the game looking rough around the edges.  Tebow was just 4-14 for 40 yards through the game's first 55 minutes or so, and the Dolphins fans were loving it.  Turns out they spoke too soon.

Tebow rallied the Broncos to a win, throwing 2 TD passes in the game's final 5 minutes as Denver came back from a 15-0 deficit to win 18-15 in overtime.

Tebow doesn't always look good when throwing the ball, but he never quits and today it was good enough to scrape out a win.  Wins are much more important than style points, and Tebow and the Broncos fans should be happy and excited about their future.  I know I enjoyed watching that game, at least.

Third and final point; Raiders fans got their wish - Carson Palmer did play after all, after Kyle Boller threw 3 INTS as the Chiefs jumped out to a big lead on Oakland.

Well, Palmer was just as incompetent as Boller, throwing 3 picks of his own.  The Chiefs wound up winning the game, 28-0, and as many predicted, Palmer was no savior.  The Raiders were a good team with Jason Campbell, but losing him hurt big time, and Palmer just isn't going to be the answer, especially when he's still rusty.

Maybe now Raiders fans will appreciate Jason Campbell.  He's a pretty good QB, and those aren't easy to come by, as the Raiders found out today.  I know the season's not over yet, but it's looking like Oakland should've just kept their draft picks and hoped for a more successful 2012.

I love DeMarco Murray, i thought he would be the steal of the draft. I watched a lot of him in college and he just had that wow factor. If he can stay healthy, he can be a hell of a weapon in that offense.
