Cowboys' Physicality Could Be Key Down Homestretch

Four of the team's final six games are on the road

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett is hoping his team’s newfound emphasis on physicality will help them out as they head down the homestretch of the 2014 season.

“You do want to have a team that can handle any conditions--playing on the road, dealing with weather, all the different things that come with being away from your home,” Garrett told the team’s website. “Those are adverse circumstances and you want to be able to embrace those as a team.”

The Cowboys certainly seem to be constructed for just those conditions, as they feature the NFL’s leading rusher in DeMarco Murray, who is working behind a young and very strong offensive line.

“If your team is set up the right way, you might be able to do that,” Garrett said. “Being a physical team, being a team that can run the football, certainly makes you more weather-proof or away-proof than you would be otherwise.”
