How’s this idea effect Dak Prescott?
Well, with no running game, or at least less ground attack than it in 2016, down and distance might not be so favorable to the Cowboys this year.

If this is true, Prescott might not see as many of those 50-plus yard touchdowns from Elliott as he did a year ago. A potential suspension for Dallas’ star running back could also hinder things early on.
If Prescott has to win games with his arm, the probability is high that the Cowboys will lose more games this season than last. If this comes to pass, perhaps Dallas does take a step back – or two.
But there’s two problems with the naysayers that are somehow overlooked.
You want to see the Cowboys fall back to wild-card status, or even miss the playoffs completely?
Well, first issue is the Dallas offensive line, which some feel might take a step back this season. Losing Ronald Leary and Doug Free could hurt, but replacing them likely with two other players with first-round talent probably doesn’t point towards ‘Armageddon.’
So long as Prescott has this line in front of him, things should actually open up for the second-year signal caller this season.
