Tony Pollard Not only is it the Cowboys’ best comeback, but it’s also one of the NFL’s best, and the key to the re-emergence of a strong offense.
According to Pro Football Focus, Pollard has 573 yards from 75 touchdowns, six touchdowns and a PFF score of 82.4 in his past four games. He has a 89.6 overall PFF score, third after Josh Jacobs (Raiders) and Nick Chubb (Browns).
Chubb and Jacobs is one of the tournaments top five in the yard. Pollard is outside the top 10 at number 11, but he started less games (three) and there were fewer hasty attempts (118) than did Chubb (174) and Jacobs (183). Pollard averaged more yards per take (5.9) than Jacobs (5.3) or Chubb (5.2).
“It took a while, but Tony Pollard’s breakout season is upon us,” PFF’s Marcus Mosher wrote. “That has suddenly turned Dallas into one of the NFL’s deadliest criminals, the one who cannibalized the arguably best player in the league right now.”
In the past four games, the Cowboys averaged 35 points per game and 412.8 yards of fouls, more than their number of fouls last season, which is No.1 in total yards and score.
Cowboys still believe in RB Ezekiel ElliottWR CeeDee Lamb and QB Dak Prescott, but it’s hard to deny Pollard is the main stone, especially after Sunday win 40-3 against the Vikings. Pollard fouled 189 yards and scored two touchdowns.
