Cowboys Stud: CeeDee Lamb, Wide Receiver
We've all heard it by now, CeeDee Lamb wants the ball more. In his defense, he hasn't been the typical diva wide receiver clamoring for touches simply to feed his ego but instead, he's asking for the ball in order to help kickstart the offense.
In Week 7, Dallas answered and he delivered with 117 yards on seven receptions. As impressive as he was in that game, he was better in just the first 30 minutes of Week 8 against the Rams.
Lamb started the game with an impressive 17-yard catch and run and then just kept rolling. By halftime, Lamb had nine catches on 10 targets for 122 yards. He also got into the end zone twice in the second quarter, scoring from 10 yards and then from 22.
If there was any area where Lamb has been struggling this year, it's getting into the end zone. In the first six games, he had just one score and was able to triple his total before the break.
He ended the day with 12 receptions for 158 yards and proved how good he can be the more often the ball comes his way.
KaVontae Turpin had a 63-yard punt return to set up CeeDee Lamb's first touchdown — he also had a punt return for a score, but it was negated by a penalty.
Sam Williams blocked a punt — thanks in large part to a huge push from Dorance Armstrong. DeMarcus Lawrence was also pushing the line all day and made sure Stafford was never comfortable in the pocket.
There was no shortage of studs in this one as the Cowboys made a huge statement against the Rams to move to 5-2 on the year.
