With the nickname of Earth, Wind, and Fire comes 2 players on this week’s game balls.
This week’s offensive game ball goes to Marion Barber.
He is the “Earth” in the three-headed monster of running backs by committee. MB3 ran for 124 yards on 18 carries with 1 touchdown. He definitely earned his nickname as Barbarian.
Marion showed quickness and toughness in him we haven’t seen in a while. He would of had another score if it wasn’t for his quad tightening up.
He looked just as good as any running back that played on Sunday. Barber also had 31 yards on 2 catches.
This week’s defensive/special teams game ball goes to Felix Jones.
Felix is the “Wind” of the group. Even though Felix had a fumble that the Giants capitalized on, he also had 134 yards on 6 kick returns for a 22 yard average. His longest return being 38 yards.
Felix showed the speed the Cowboys need out of the backfield.
In addition, on offense Jones had and impressive 96 yards on just 7 carries. Wow!
The Cowboys nearly had 2 running backs with 100 yards each. Despite the fumble, Felix helped the Cowboys almost pull off the win. He scored the go ahead touchdown to put the Cowboys up 31 to 30.
Congratulations to Marion and Felix for their outstanding play.
