    Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray says he wasn’t mad at anyone following the 37-36 loss to the Green Bay Packers last Sunday. It was just that, after running for 93 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries in the first half as the team built a 26-3 lead, he would’ve liked a chance to secure the win in the second half.

    Murray finished with 134 yards on 18 attempts.

    “You know, I mean, I think in that situation, the offensive line and myself would definitely have liked the opportunity to close the game out for us and give us that opportunity,” Murray said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “I wasn’t mad at anybody. I was just mad at the situation. We let them come back and gave them an opportunity to win the game, and they took advantage of that. But I wasn’t mad at anyone or anything like that.”

    Murray said he hasn’t discussed the lack of run plays in the second half with the coaching staff, but he isn’t bothered by the fact.

    “They don’t need to come to me,” Murray said. “I think there are some things we wish we could have done differently.  We watched the film. There are some great things we did and some things we need to build on. There are some bad things that we didn’t do so well that we’ve got to get corrected. At the end of the day, these last two weeks, we’ve got to get better and continue to execute ball plays offensively.”
