Who you got??

It???s early in the 2013 NFL season, but the Dallas Cowboys have gotten off to a good start so far and their matchup Sunday against the surprisingly competitive San Diego Chargers is going to be a solid road test to see where they stand.

Tony Romo has always carried the load for the Jason Garrett and the Dallas offense, but DeMarco Murray will get a significant amount of carries after a huge game (26 carries for 175 yards, 6.7 yards per carry and a touchdown) last weekend in their 31-7 win over the St. Louis Rams. It was his first 100 yard game since the first game of the 2012 season and San Diego allows 130ypg, 28th in the NFL so the Chargers should expect to see Murray up close and personal early and often.

The Chargers secondary also allows 341 ypg through the air (last in the NFL) so Romo should be able to get some play action passes at the line and has reliable targets in Dez Bryant (17 catches, 14 of those for first downs, 67ypg, and 2 TD???s), Jason Witten (16 catches, 49.7ypg and 2 TD???s). Bryant needs to break off some longer receptions, he is averaging just 11.8ypc this season and the Cowboys could use some bigger plays out of him.

Murray has been a solid receiver out . . .
