Murray leads Dallas past Seattle 30-23

Oct 12, 2014 7:57 PM

SEATTLE (AP) - DeMarco Murray ran for a 15-yard touchdown with 3:16 left and became the second running back in NFL history with six straight 100-yard games to start the season as the Dallas Cowboys stunned the Seattle Seahawks 30-23 on Sunday.

Dallas overcame a pair of special teams turnovers and became the first team outside the NFC West to win in Seattle since 2011. Murray's touchdown run capped a 75-yard drive that saw Tony Romo convert a third-and-20 finding Terrance Williams along the sideline.

The Cowboys are 5-1 for the first time since 2007 and beating the defending champions gives validity to the surprising start.

Russell Wilson ran for a 9-yard touchdown and Mike Morgan returned a blocked punt 25 yards for a score. But after being lauded for his Monday night performance, Wilson was part of a miserable day for Seattle's offense.
