Ezekiel Elliott Responds To "Lack Of Effort" Showed Against Broncos

Ezekiel Elliott Dallas Cowboys

"They work together. The best offenses, when they're playing well, are able to do both those things throughout a ballgame".

Ezekiel Elliott acknowledged this week that he deserved to be criticized for the effort he put forth in Sunday's loss to the Denver Broncos, but that does not mean he is spending a lot of time worrying about what the media has to say.

Dansby said during the week the Cardinals need to stop Dallas on first and second downs; the Cowboys have one of the better offensive lines in football starting with Smith at left tackle, center Travis Frederick and right guard Zack Martin.

If the Cardinals can at least slow down Elliott and Dallas' various pass-catchers (Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams, Jason Witten and Cole Beasley); it's conceivable that the Cowboys could lose. Nelson is atop the Arizona receivers with 13 targets, 10 catches, 163 yards and two TDs. If we focus on that, pay attention to that, we are just feeding into what everybody is talking about. Those are some nice rings, though.

If Wentz is forced off his game and Philadelphia's offense is slowed down, and Manning can get even just a bit more protection; it's conceivable that NY could beat the Eagles. Only Hall of Famer Jerry Rice and Moss had more touchdowns in their first five seasons.

How can I listen to the game on the radio?

The offense for the Cardinals will see the big loss of David Johnson really hurt in this game. Humphries (LT), or John Brown (WR) this Monday, either.

"I don't have anything bad to say about the kid".

If they do not get a healthy cornerback soon, it might be time for the Cowboys to pursue a veteran cornerback in a trade. With a large amount of blue expected to be in attendance, Fitzgerald's role will be key in igniting the Red Sea their home opener. The last team to put them through such misery was New Orleans Saints in Week 10 of 2013 season when the score was 49-17. Chris Johnson is the top running back thus far, but with just 44 yards. Even Tom Brady, outrushed Elliot in week two. The second-year back out of Ohio State has 100+ scrimmage yards in seven of the last nine outings. Take away the slant and the dig, and when they get in 21 personnel and Dez is inside the numbers, you take away the corner post.

These teams know each other well, and this should be a good contest on Monday Night Football. Dak Prescott, who finished last season fourth in the National Football League in completion percentage (67.8) and yards per attempt (7.99) and third in passer rating (104.9), was held to 238 passing yards on 50 throws (4.76 per attempt) and was also picked off twice. "Oftentimes a player can be frustrated by something and it doesn't necessarily show who he is".

The Cowboys are built to succeed through their running game.

Both players and, more importantly, both teams are anxious to get the season started.

If Prescott and the passing game don't prove they can beat teams through the air, it might be a constant state of humble pie. That's a place no one wants to be.

It's now or never, Carson.
