Undoubtedly, a large portion of the Dallas Cowboys success relies upon the dynamic duo of Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott.
For Elliott, due to the position he plays, along with the offensive line in front of him, it’s hard to imagine any drop-off. I think anyone who knows anything about football would be shocked if Elliott did not have another 1,000+ yard season.

The success of this team certainly revolves around the play of the quarterback.
No one expected Prescott to come in as a rookie and play the way he did. During the season, as his confidence grew, you saw that no moment was too big for him.
Not only did he handle his on the field responsibilities well, he absolutely crushed the off-field stuff as well. There are few players in the NFL, especially at 23 years of age, with the intangibles and character of Dak Prescott.
With an entire offseason available to him to review mistakes he made while being forced into action as a rookie, I expect him to be even better. I also expect growth from him now that this will be his offense. Now that this team can cater the offense to his specific skill set, I believe you’ll see Prescott take the next step.
If that comes into fruition, this team should have no problems winning 10+ games in 2017
