Another record has fallen in the Dallas Cowboys’ game against the Green Bay Packers.

Ezekiell Elliott entered the game as the NFL’s leading rusher and has combined with Dak Prescott to build one of the NFL’s most dynamic backfields. (Of course, with a lot of credit to Dallas’ dominant offensive line).
Elliott didn’t run for a touchdown Sunday, but he helped setup a couple touchdown throws by Prescott with his threat to run on play-action plays.
Elliott has been getting the work done with a lighter work load as well. He’s averaging close to 25 carries per game and isn’t being forced to take heavy hits.
Earlier in the game Prescott set a record by passing Tom Brady and setting the all-time mark for most passing attempts without an interception in a career.
