Cowboys running back Robert Turbin scored his first career touchdown in the third quarter of the loss to the Packers on Sunday, and thanks to the offensive line, it was actually pretty easy as far as major life accomplishments go.

Turbin was barely touched on his seven-yard touchdown run, which was set up by a 45-yard run from Darren McFadden.

"The offensive line did a great job up front to make things easy for us,” Turbin told the team’s official website. “On that play, there was really nothing that I had to do except run straight ahead. The offensive line did a great job.”

McFadden finished with 111 yards on just 9 carries and, aside from the 45-yard run, broke off a 50-yarder as well. Turbin finished with 51 yards on seven carries, his highest output since joining the Cowboys in mid-November.
