DeMarco Murray ran for three touchdowns, backup Lance Dunbar had a career-high 82 yards rushing and the Dallas Cowboys overcame Oakland's fumble return for a score on the opening kickoff to beat the Raiders 31-24 Thursday.

Murray had 63 yards rushing but his highlight was the finishing work, including a 7-yard score to put Dallas ahead for good early in the fourth quarter.

Dunbar, who went out with a left knee sprain, sparked the tying and go-ahead touchdown drives in the second half, highlighted by a 45-yard run that led to a 4-yard scoring pass from Tony Romo to Dez Bryant.

The Cowboys (7-5) moved two games above .500 for the first time since late last season. The Raiders (4-8) guaranteed an 11th straight season without a winning record. 

Matt McGloin had a strong first half for the Raiders, leading consecutive TD drives that put Oakland up 21-7.
