Ultimate Stud: Tony Pollard, Running Back
Even with Ezekiel Elliott returning to the lineup, Tony Pollard was the best weapon on the field for the Cowboys on Sunday. No. 20 rushed the ball 15 times for 80 yards but had the best game of his career receiving the ball.
Pollard caught six passes for 109 yards and two touchdowns, including a career-long 68-yard touchdown reception. The 25-year-old continues to dominate for the Cowboys as this was his third straight game with over 100 total yards and a touchdown.
Both Pollard and Elliott had tons of success in this game and the workload splits are what we should see more of moving forward. Pollard had 21 touches compared to Elliott’s 16, but the latter excelled at short yardage and goal-line plays. In his contract year, the former Memphis Tiger continues to show why he is one of the most underrated players in the entire NFL.
