Ezekiel Elliott isn’t worried about his stats, only wins

Ezekiel Elliott gained 47 yards in Week 10. He gained 45 yards in Week 11.

It’s the second-fewest rushing yards he ever has had in back-to-back games in his four-year career.

“I think you do have to be patient,” the Cowboys running back said Wednesday. “You can’t get too worried about it. You can’t play outside of your game. You can’t pay outside of this scheme, trying to force something. You have to let the game come to you. That is most important.”

The Cowboys rank first in total offense, including first in passing offense. Elliott’s 833 rushing yards rank only eighth, 266 behind league-leader Christian McCaffrey.

After averaging 101.2 yards per game in his first three seasons, while winning two rushing titles, Elliott is averaging 83.3 rushing yards per game.

He also is on pace for the second-fewest receiving yards in his career.

Elliott isn’t sweating it.

“As long as the offense is rolling, it’s good,” he said. “I’m not really focused on the total or anything. We know we’ve got some work to do on the run game. Week in and week out, we’re going to attack that, and we’re going to get better in the run game. But as long as the offense is rolling and we’re scoring 35 points, that’s great in the NFL.”

  1. Funny just watched a YouTube video about this hes going down on the first hit now as opposed to fighting through it like he used to Money changes people little Haynesworth got paid

  2. Pats can be run on. Cowboys better fix their running game yesterday. I got a feeling it’s going to be the saints game all over again for the cowboys. Pats rushing 4 to 5 guys and trusting their secondary to do their job. If the cowboys can’t run the ball in this game they will loose. If Prescott passes them to a win I’ll be shocked, happy but very surprised

  3. Says all running backs who sign a huge contract and decline immediately.

    Like it or not this is alarming. Their run game is getting worse not better, and Dak isn’t going to beat playoff caliber defenses. Just look at his track record.

    I would rank these guys as

    Maholmes, Lamar, Dak, Wentz, Goff a very distant 5th. The boys need to win this year because they’ve totally messed up their cap number.

  4. I said when he was holding out….. he wants to be overpaid….. so Jerry, who falls in love with player, overpaid him and look at the results. That is typical in this organization..

    “totally messed up their cap number”
    apparently you just like to talk. The Cowboys are currently 21 million under the cap and will be 81 million under going into the off season. Those numbers would be considered are great cap situation

    Zeke playing great team football. If teams want to stack 8 in the box against him, Dak will throw for 400 yards. Once teams start to adjust to Dak, then it will be time to run them over again. Stay tuned.

  6. The concern about Zeke’s production and stats (or lack thereof) is really being overstated. Zeke has a great attitude and is working. I am not worried at the least bit about his current production. More worried about the run defense than I am the running game.
