FRISCO, Texas – The Dallas Cowboys have missed Ezekiel Elliott, as they never imagined they would, but this will be the last weekend they will have to play without him, at least for the six-game suspension the NFL imposed on the running back. star for violation of the personal code of conduct of the league.
When Elliott left he was again the most productive runner in the NFL, at least in terms of yards per race statistics he was referring to since Week 3, and second in general, and the one with the most touchdowns; that’s not counting the blocking quality and the problems that it generates to the defenses, when it does not even have the ball.

We had to adjust every week to play without him, “said Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott.” I think that made me a better player, with more experience. Especially, when you lose a player of that caliper in the backfield or when we suffer a complicated period, I think it has made me a better player in all aspects “.
The Cowboys lost the first three games without Elliott with an offense that barely averaged 30 combined points; the worst record in its history for that period of time in the regular season.
The rivals (Atlanta, Philadelphia and San Diego) beat the Cowboys by a combined score of 92-22.
During the last two games, the situation improved dramatically, although against two teams that have a losing record, Redskins and Giants.
But the best part for Dallas is that they were able to move the ball much better per race without Elliott.
The Cowboys ran 122 yards against the Giants and 182 against the Redskins.
“Obviously Zeke is really a very good soccer player and he makes everyone around him better,” said Cowboys coach Jason Garrett. “I think the guys have done a much better job without him over the last couple of weeks, we’re happy he’s coming back next week, although our focus is always on the players we have available right now.”
