Marshawn Lynch's amazing touchdown run last weekend got me to thinking about the best runs I've seen by a Dallas Cowboy.
I found three, by three very different running backs. (Though none of them tops Earl Campbell's doozy.)
1. Emmitt Smith's escape of the Falcons and race past Deion Sanders in 1992. (At about the 1:40 mark.)

2. Marion Barber's improbable 2-yard run. (Back before he over-celebrated.)
3. And, of course, how about Tony Dorsett's 99-yard run against the Vikings. (In reverse? Backward? Something. But still special.)
