Dallas Cowboys vs. Denver Broncos: Five Things to Look For

While Denver's Trevor Siemian tied a career-high with four TD passes against Lee's D, the Broncos recorded a late 103-yard pick-six on Dak while limiting 2016 National Football League rushing champ Ezekiel Elliott to just eight yards on nine carries. On Sunday they got a good look at how they might be without the sophomore back.

In addition to the ridiculous amount of pressure these two players put on, the Broncos as a whole dominated the Cowboys' offensive line and running back Zeke Elliott in the running game. "At different times today, I thought we were able to do that, and at other times we weren't". It's going to be you versus us. "Hopefully we can keep staying in those third-and-5, third-and-4s, and keep on the field". In the receiving end, McCoy posted 34 yards in six receptions while Jordan Matthews added 30 yards in three catches. He stepped in front of Dak Prescott's end-zone pass intended for Dez Bryant and sprinted down the sideline for the score, leaping into the seats to celebrate.

I give you the play-by-play to describe without prejudice exactly what happened on an important play in the eventual Denver rout of Dallas. Joseph said the day after the team's Monday night win against Los Angeles that the Cowboys' offense wasn't hard to game plan for, but they are hard to stop. One of the best things that we do is control the tempo of the game with our physicalness and our running game. He had 231 passing yards, four touchdowns, and one interception. Outside of the one interception, which was more of a unit issue than a Trevor issue, he played well.

Elliott finished this game with nine carries for eight yards, and a 0.9 average per carry. "From pass protection to catching the ball out of the backfield to picking the right spots and breaking tackles and having the long-end speed, he's a really, really good back and our defense has got a tough matchup this week". "It's frustrating but it's Week 2".

Despite the two victories, Joseph knows that the team still has several things it needs to work on in order to remain successful, and fnishing the fourth quarter is foremost among them. The second-year quarterback threw for 238 yards and two touchdowns, but he needed 50 attempts to reach those numbers.

Denver scored on their opening drive when Siemian found Sanders for a 10-yard strike, but then the game was delayed later in the first quarter by 62 minutes with storm clouds circling.

Once the storm passed, play was resumed. Now both of these teams are starting young quarterbacks and relying on strong running games and stout defenses. He played in only four games last season for the Seahawks.

Prescott, who was wildly efficient in 2016, was all over the place.

The Cowboys were so thin at cornerback that it looked like even Byron Jones was going to be moving from his safety position. Broncos up 42-17 with less than a minute left of the game.
