1. The Cowboys’ Offense Has Special Potential

It doesn’t take long to see the potential this Cowboys offense has is truly remarkable. Putting up 40 points despite being held scoreless in the first quarter and having five overall turnovers is incredible and shows how Dallas can put up points in a hurry.

The tone is still set by the presence Ezekiel Elliott provides in the Cowboys’ backfield. He finished with 89 rushing yards and one rushing score while adding in six catches for 33 receiving yards to go along with. With the defense focused on him, Dak Prescott was able to rush for three touchdowns of his own.

The impact Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup typically make in the Cowboys’ passing game is already well known. However, the rest of the supporting cast came to play, too. Overall, the passing offense finished with 450 yards and one touchdown — showing off a real ability to move the chains.

The ultimate X-Factor for the Cowboys’ offense is CeeDee Lamb to really raise this unit over the top. The rookie showed precisely why that’s the case in this outing as he finished with six receptions resulting in a team-most 106 receiving yards.
