He also led in the rushing department, registering a 14-yard longest run and covering 46 yards by 5 carries. Davante Adams had 10 receptions with a big total of 180 yards.

The team was able to execute an amazing 74 plays that gained 491 yards. They played good, solid defense, limiting the opponent to 16 out of 27 catch attempts for a total of 160 yards at only 59% completion.
The packers gave way to 336 yards for that matchup. This was not characteristic of the Packers defense however- they usually limited the opponent to 142 rushing yards. The Packers are well-known as one of those all-defense, minimal-offense teams, and they were fortunate to have just enough offensive output to usher them into a good 3-1 season record. However, their opponent should still watch out for their total yardage and throw strategies, as this will dictate the pace of the matchup.

The Dallas Cowboys bowed to the New Orleans Saints during their last match up with a scoreboard of 12-10. Ezekiel Elliot closed the game with impressive stats, however. He was the rush leader, clocking in 18 carries for a total of 35 yards. Dak Prescott went 22/33 with 223 air yards, but did not garner a touchdown in that style. The Cowboys rushed with the ball 20 times and were able to cover 45 yards after each attempt. In terms of first-downs, the Cowboys had 15, but were weighed down by 6 penalties amounting to 64 yards. The Cowboys attempted to connect 54 plays, resulting in a yardage gain of 257.
In the defense section, Dallas gave up too much air yards, allowing the opponent to coast through with a 77% completion rate. Dallas were not able to contest 23 out of 30 catch attempts, resulting in a total yardage loss of 266 and garnered 1 turnover. The Cowboys have a weird mix of stats. On one hand, offense is just average, but they’re still able to get point opportunities, as evidenced by their scoring average of 26.8 points per matchup. However, as with most teams ranked middle-tier or below, the cowboys lack sound offense that can switch to either ground or air yards coverage.
