Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 4 vs NO (3 / 54 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Dunbar had an expanded role against New Orleans as the primary backup, over Darren McFadden, on the opening drives. Typically a passing down specialist, Dunbar exceled on the ground with two long gains in the opening half. After a strong first half, Dunbar injured his knee on the opening kickoff of the second half. The team fears a torn ACL and MCL. Dunbar had the third-most targets on the season for Dallas. Expect Cole Beasley and Jason Witten to pick up the underneath route slack as Joseph Randle has not been a high-rate receiving option in his career, Darren McFadden does not offer much open field appeal anymore, and Christine Michael has yet to be used much in passing situations in his career to-date.

2015 Week 3 vs ATL (1 / 5 / 0 rush, 10 / 10 / 100 / 0 rec)

Dunbar had one of his finest games in the NFL with 10 receptions against Atlanta. Dunbar consistently beat single coverage over the middle as Brandon Weeden's outlet target. When in hurry-up mode, Dunbar did most of his damage, seeing exclusive backfield snaps and his highlight play. Dunbar spun away from the defender all the way down to the one-yard-line in the final minutes of the first half. Three receptions late in the fourth quarter padded Dunbar's stat line as Dallas attempted to close the two-score deficit with underneath receptions.

2015 Week 2 vs PHI (1 / 8 / 0 rush, 5 / 3 / 45 / 0 rec)

Dunbar was active as a receiver against the Eagles, regularly lining up split out from the formation. On two occasions, Dunbar beat man coverage on deep routes. The first was against quality cover linebacker Mychal Kendricks with the ball just out of reach for Dunbar on the long potential touchdown. In the second half Dunbar got loose down the sidelines, locating the ball over his outside shoulder for the outstanding deep reception. Later in the game Dunbar exhibited a strong stiff arm on a reception in the flat, coming up just short of the first down marker. Dunbar's only notable play on the ground came on a give-up play call on third-and-down. With Dez Bryant out of the lineup, look for Dunbar to continue his work as a receiver.

2015 Week 1 vs NYG (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 8 / 8 / 70 / 0 rec)

Dunbar saw the most snaps of Dallas running backs and the primary option in Dallas' hurry up offense. He motioned out as a receiver multiple times and the Cowboys had set plays to get Dunbar the ball in space. In addition to maintaining control through contact on a tough third down reception in the red zone, Dunbar was instrumental on Dallas' game-winning drive in the closing two minutes. A huge gain to midfield, followed by another chunk gain as the Giants defense sagged in a deep shell put Dallas into position for the Week 1 victory.
