6. Elliott finishes with 30+ carries

Ezekiel Elliott has always been known to be a workhorse throughout his NFL career, and with the Dallas Cowboys preparing for one of their toughest games in 2019 against the New England Patriots, the Ohio State product should see a heavy workload once again.

Throughout the regular season, the Patriots have put together one of the top defenses in the NFL, but stopping the run hasn’t always been easy for the defending Super Bowl champions.

The Cowboys are loaded with plenty of weapons on offense for Dak Prescott to work with, but if Dallas is going to have any shot at pulling off a win on the road, it could fall on the shoulders of Elliott.

Giving Elliott more than 30 carries in a single game may sound too much to consider, but as mentioned before, there’s a reason why he’s normally described to be a workhorse in the backfield.

Whatever it takes to put the Cowboys in the best position possible to take down the Patriots, Elliott will be ready for anything his team needs.

If not, well Dallas better hope to receive help from the Seattle Seahawks, or the Philadelphia Eagles will be looking to take advantage of their rivals suffering a key loss.
