Dallas Cowboys’ Ezekiel Elliott has this to say about getting an opportunity to win the NFC East crown

The Dallas Cowboys actually have an opportunity to win the NFC East heading into the final week of the regular season.

In spite of losing beginning quarterback Dak Prescott to a season-finishing injury in Week 5 against the New York Giants, the Cowboys figured out how to lift up reinforcement Andy Dalton, and they’ve won three-straight matches, which has set them in a place to take the division crown away from the Washington Football Team.

Falling off a 37-17 triumph over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 16, Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott imparted his thoughts to Sports Illustrated about the unusual 2020 NFL season.

“I mean, it’s a little weird—but this is a weird-a– year,” Elliott told Sports Illustrated from the Cowboys locker room late Sunday. “Like, if there was a year, this would be the year. So we’re gonna get back to work and get ready to do everything we can to go win next week, so we can have a chance at winning this division.”

The Cowboys will take on the Giants for a second time next Sunday.

Back in Week 5, Dallas left away with a 37-34 win over the Giants. Elliott had 19 carries for 91 yards and two scores, and newbie wideout CeeDee Lamb had eight receptions for 124 yards for the Cowboys.

In Week 17, The Cowboys need to win, and they need some assistance from the Eagles to guarantee the division crown. In the event that Dallas leaves away with a triumph over the Giants, and if the Eagles manage to upset division-leading Washington, Dallas will host a playoff game in the NFC playoffs.
