Cowboys running game stuck in neutral since opener

The Dallas Cowboys' running game has been stuck in neutral since an impressive start.

The same unit that ran for 143 yards in a season-opening victory is now 29th in the NFL, averaging just 68 yards per game. The only reason the Cowboys (2-2) are even that high is because of what they did against the New York Giants in that first game.

Coach Jason Garrett says there are different reasons for the struggles. Among them are pre-snap penalties, minus-yardage runs and bad blocking.

DeMarco Murray had 131 yards on 20 carries in the opener. He has 106 yards on 41 carries since. Outside of Murray, the Cowboys have 18 rushing attempts for 34 yards.

They play Sunday at Baltimore, which has won 13 home games in a row.
