One of the biggest stories to follow the first time the Eagles and Cowboys played during the 2015 season was that Dallas knew Philadelphia's play calls. Wide receiver Josh Huff said the Cowboys knew what plays the Eagles were running before the ball was snapped. During Philadelphia's Week 9 game, however, it may have been the Eagles who were calling out offensive plays being run by the Cowboys. Check out this clip of former Dallas running back DeMarco Murray helping out his new teammates:

This moment happened on the Cowboys' final drive of regulation. Murray seems to be telling Eagles cornerback Nolan Carroll to expect Dez Bryant to run a hitch route. As pointed out by Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice, Murray ended up being CORRECT: Bryant ran a hitch and covered him accordingly. Matt Cassel had to check down to Darren McFadden to bring up fourth down. The Cowboys would end up converting, but at least Murray did his part to help before that.

You can tell how much Murray wanted to beat his former team. And he didn't only help the Eagles out by calling plays ... he also ran for 83 yards and one touchdown on 18 carries to go along with six receptions for 78 yards.
