08:01 AM ET 10.20 | Since leaving Oklahoma, DeMarco Murray hasn't had much of an impact in the NFL. A hamstring injury kept him out of part of training camp, and then he had to sit and wait his turn behind starter Felix Jones. Murray has only 26 touches, including two kick returns, for a total of 107 yards. But an injury to Jones has Murray ready for his chance to contribute more. "You never hope anyone get hurts, but you have to step up to the plate when opportunity presents itself," Murray said. "I can't predict the future, so I didn't know when I was going to get an opportunity or when I would get more carries. I still don't know if I will or not, so we'll see come Sunday."

The Cowboys offensive line hasn't done well enough this year for Murray to flourish. They are at best an 8-8 team.

The Lambs are terrible. Back to their 2009 form. What happened to them? I thought they were going somewhere after their improvement last year. Just another case of a team looking better than they were because they were in the worthless NFC West?

It will be a St. Louis sweep on Sunday. Down go the Rams in the afternoon followed by the Cards getting shuffled out of Rangers Ballpark at night.

The NFC West does make them look good, and so far they haven't played a divisional game. Their schedule to date has been much tougher than last year. Throw in all the injuries they've had and you have a recipe for a bad year.

It's "their" A game. That doesn't make it "an" A game.

No...actually 2, which is why 50 Cent should sing at halftime at the Thanksgiving Day game.

Dez Bryant got in trouble for showing some flashes at the mall.
