Dallas’ Not So Secret Weapon

I’ve been hearing about it for a while now. RB Tony Pollard needs to be utilized more in the Dallas Cowboys offense. That has certainly been the case this season and it was helped by an injury to RB Ezekiel Elliott. With Elliott’s return this past week against the Minnesota Vikings there was a thought that Pollard’s usage would be reduced. On the contrary that didn’t happen at all. Now Pollard wasn’t the only reason why the Cowboys destroyed the Vikings 40-3. But it can’t be ignored that while Pollard is playing this way the Cowboys can ill afford to change this going forward toward December.

Yeah, That Was Good

If there was a better way for the league to market their NFL+ service, I haven’t seen it yet. The game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Buffalo Bills can’t be quantified in a highlight package. You have to see it from beginning to end. The plays being made by Vikings WR Justin Jefferson and Bills WR Stephon Diggs were out of this world. When you thought the game was over with Buffalo having the ball on their own 1-yard line, they fumbled the snap and Minnesota recovered it for a touchdown. Of course this game would eventually go to overtime, but a an interception thrown by Josh Allen sealed the victory for the Vikings who are now 8-1. Consider watching a full replay of this one. You won’t regret it.

An Actual Must See Game In The NFC East?

I’ve said for many years now that the NFC East is a Jekyll and Hyde division. I never know which version of the four teams will show up in a given week. Dare I say that may be changing now with the way the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles have been playing this year. For Dallas they are winning games without their star quarterback Dak Prescott. Backup QB Cooper Rush has been solid and the Cowboys’ defense has been among the best in the league. Their dominance was on full display against the Los Angeles Rams this past week, but their biggest test will come against the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night. Not to mention the New York Giants are 4-1, but I’m not quite there with saying they’re contenders just yet. Assuming the Cowboys-Eagles matchup next week lives up to the hype, this will shape the hierarchy for the NFC the rest of the season.
