Through 10 games, the Dallas Cowboys used a running back rotation.
Ezekiel Elliott, Tony Pollard and others have received their fair share of carries. However, Pollard has started to get more in the last few weeks.
Elliott clearly noticed this and was not bothered by being asked by the media about it. He is all about winning, regardless of the cost.
“No, not at all. I think we’ve all got the same goal – go out there and win football games, however we need to do that. You know, that’s what matters,” Elliott said.
Tony Pollard is the most feared #Cowboys offensive player. He’s taking snaps from Ezekiel Elliott. I asked if it bothers him.

This is the best mindset to have, especially if your team is in a position for the playoffs or a deep run.
This season, Elliott has 124 runs for 485 yards with seven touchdowns and Pollard has 118 for 701 yards with six touchdowns.
This is a devastating one-two punch that few teams have been able manage to contain. This is also a dangerous one-two punch that might not last beyond this season, as Pollard will be a free agent in March.
