Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is ready to see a heavy workload on Monday night, with temperatures in Chicago expected to fall to as low as 10 degrees and a 30 percent chance of snow.
“Yeah, I’m ready to run in the cold,” Murray said, per the Dallas Morning News. “We know that the conditions may not be too great. We’ve got to be mentally strong in this game.”
The Bears come into Monday night having allowed a league worst 153 rushing yards a game, as well as an NFL-high 5.0 yards per carry this season. But despite the numbers, Murray isn’t taking the once-feared group lightly.
“It still is a great franchise,” Murray said. “You grew up watching those guys and knew how great their defenses are. They have a lot of pride, Monday night game, so definitely don’t take anything for granted. I know they’re going to be ready to play.”
