The Dallas Cowboys are heading into the 2020 NFL season looking to make a run at the Super Bowl. Ezekiel Elliott will have a huge hand in deciding where the franchise ends up.
Gone are the days of Jason Garrett leading the way from the sidelines. Dallas chose to move on from him and bring in former Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy to replace him. It’s a move that many feel will pay off.
McCarthy was at one point one of the best offensive coaches in the league. He helped Aaron Rodgers form one of the most lethal offenses for years. Now, with the Cowboys, he will be looking to maximize the talent of Dak Prescott and Elliott, along with the plethora of weapons at wide receiver.
During the 2019 season with the Cowboys, Elliott ended up carrying the football 301 times for 1,357 yards and 12 touchdowns. He also caught 54 passes for 420 yards and two touchdowns on the year.
All of that being said, what should the Cowboys be expecting from Ezekiel Elliott this season? Let’s dive in and take a look.
