It doesn’t appear DeMarco Murray misses Chip Kelly all that much.

On his very first carry of Sunday’s game against the Giants — his first run since Kelly was let go as the Philadelphia Eagles’ coach last week — Murray took the ball 54 yards for the game’s opening touchdown.

That one carry gave Murray his most rushing yards in a game since Week 11. Murray led the NFL with 1,845 rushing yards last season as a Cowboy but never fit into Kelly’s offense after signing with the Eagles and entered Week 17 with only 633 yards.

Murray finished the game — a 35-30 win — with 12 carries for 69 yards and the one score.
