Dallas Cowboys look absent, too, in first game without Ezekiel Elliott

Dallas Cowboys look absent, too, in first game without Ezekiel Elliott

Imagine what the Dallas Cowboys could have done if theyd had time to prepare for Ezekiel Elliotts suspension.

Oh, wait.

Despite knowing for three months that this day was coming, be it this season or next, the Cowboys looked completely unprepared for life without their offensive workhorse in Sundays 27-7 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. A loss that looked even worse than the score indicated.

The Cowboys managed all of 233 yards. Adrian Clayborn treated Dak Prescott like his personal tackling dummy, recording a franchise-record six sacks. Yes, you read that right. Six. Granted, Prescott was exposed without All-Pro left tackle Tyron Smith. But the Falcons sacked him eight times Sunday. Thats a seasons worth for some defenses.

Alfred Morris managed 53 yards rushing. Or what teams usually spot Elliott simply by getting off the bus. Prescott was the second-leading rusher, with 42 yards.

The really bad news? Elliott's not coming back anytime soon, and the Philadelphia Eagles, the NFLs hottest team, are up next.

As if Jerry Jones wasnt already livid enough at NFL commissioner Roger Goodell ...

After more than a year-long investigation into domestic abuse allegations, Goodell suspended Elliott in August for six games for violating the personal conduct policy. Elliott has vehemently denied abusing his ex-girlfriend, and prosecutors in Columbus, Ohio, decided there wasnt enough evidence to charge him.
