2. Time To Get To Work
I spoke earlier about the Cowboys’ need to have better play-calling from offensive coordinator Kellen Moore on Monday night, but that’s only part of the equation. The players on the field need to execute better, and more importantly, hang on to the football to prevent turnovers. This team can’t afford to give a quarterback like Tom Brady a short field regardless of how poorly the offensive line’s gameplay has been.
The person that needs to and will get this offense on track will be Dak Prescott and with the help of running back Tony Pollard and CeeDee Lamb are going to do just that. With teams trying to take Lamb out of the passing game Prescott will need to rely on Pollard to get open in space and make plays when he gets the ball in his hands to draw the Buccaneers’ safeties’ attention.
In those instances where they hesitate Prescott and Lamb will take advantage with shots down the field. One way this will happen will be to have Ezekiel Elliott in the backfield with Pollard next to Lamb in the slot forcing the safeties to make quick decisions.
