Summary

Does the offensive line make the back or the back make the offensive line? In truth, a great running game emerges from a confluence of solid line play and talented ball carriers. Ezekiel Elliott remains one of the league's most talented tailbacks, but he's coming off a down season that casts doubts on the decision to sign him to a six-year, $90 million extension. Elliott set career lows in attempts per game (16.3), yards per attempt (4.0), yards per target (4.8), and touchdowns (8) while playing fifteen games. Optimists can blame more than degrading offensive line play. They can point to Elliott's bout of Covid in the summer, Prescott's season-ending injury, and the defense's poor play. Presuming the All-Pro has a productive, healthy training camp, expectations for a bounce-back season are probably justified. (May 18)
