    The friendship between Cowboys starting QB and RB Ezekiel Elliott has been well documented, since they arrived as rookies in 2016. It's been highlighted even more so as the ongoing season of Hard Knocks has followed the two on and off the practice field and in position group meetings.

    Elliott was drafted fourth overall because of his ability to do it all out of the backfield. His completeness as a player has brought him into the Cowboys QB meetings at times, something Elliott was asked about Wednesday.

    While Ezekiel Elliott may have been drafted to run in a power scheme behind a top , his game has adapted along with Prescott's.

    Zeke is set to take his top spot back! Prescott knows his RB is on a mission! And the way I see it going forward ( after a Lil slow start ) about the second quarter; Tom Brady is gone ( God bless him) & the offense puts up it’s first touchdown! I see a 59- 16 score for them Cowboys! Zeke 124 yds 2 touchdown, Dak 320 – 360 yds 3td! The defense scores twice! Setting up a whirlwind ️ of hype & believable Convo! Let’s go Cowboys!

    Really, did you see the super bowl. how Tampa D line took control of the game. that unit is the super bowl MVP. Sorry Tom and you think cowboys offense line that hasn’t played together in over a year plus Dak, I’m a NFL fan, Cowboys just happen to be my favorite team are not going to put up 45 points. Cowboys will win if Zeke has 28 + carries 110 yrds 2 td’s no fumbles, most of those yrds will need to be on 3rd down keeping chains moving
