It was another disappointing game at Cowboys Stadium for former Sooner quarterback Sam Bradford.

Bradford completed 29 of 48 passes for 240 yards and one touchdown, but he was sacked six times by the Dallas Cowboys, and the St. Louis Rams lost to Dallas, 31-7.

It was the first time Bradford had played a game at Cowboys Stadium since injuring his shoulder in OU’s season opener in 2009 against Brigham Young.

Three players with Oklahoma connections were on the winning side for Dallas.

Former Sooner DeMarco Murray carried the ball 26 times for 175 yards, his second highest pro total, plus scored a 2-yard touchdown.

Murray’s career high was 253 yards, also against the Rams in 2011, which is still a Cowboys franchise record.

Former OSU receiver Dez Bryant had four catches for 38 yards and a 2-yard touchdown.

Former OSU kicker Dan Bailey added a 19-yard field goal.

In Landover, Maryland, the Washington Redskins hosted Detroit, and former Sooner Ryan Broyles made his return to the Lions, playing in his first game
since a season-ending knee injury last year.

Broyles caught three passes for 34 yards as the Lions beat the Redskins 27-20.

Former OU running back Adrian Peterson had 25 carries for 88 yards and scored a touchdown, but the Minnesota Vikings lost at home to Cleveland, 31-27.

The Browns were playing without former OSU quarterback Brandon Weeden, who sat out with a thumb injury.

Former OSU running back Kendall Hunter had four carries for 14 yards and scored on a 13-yard touchdown run, but the San Francisco 49ers lost at home to
Indianapolis, 27-7.
