Welcome to another edition of Thinking Inside the Box, where I peruse the box scores for interesting tidbits of information...


Narrative has been covered, but it’s pretty amazing that the Cowboys didn’t run DeMarco Murray more (18 carries, 134 yards).

Eddie Lacy posted 171 total yards and the go-ahead TD on 25 touches and has my totally biased vote for OROY.

Jordy (5-61-1), Jones (3-49-1) and Boykin (6-83) will all be very startable if the Packers get Rodgers back next week vs. PIT.

Andrew Quarless has back to back 6-66-1 games, and also has “God’s Gift” tattooed on the back of his arms. #eerie

Dez Bryant 11-153-1 (17) had his first 13+ point outing since Week 8. He made an incredible catch in the back of the endzone.

Jarret Boykin is the #29 WR since Week 7; if James Jones (FA) doesn’t return, Boykin will step into starting role in 2014.

Kirk Cousins (381 yards, 3 TD, 2 INT) was the #6 QB in Week 15 and looks like a great streaming option in Week 16 (vs. DAL).
