His 444-yard, three-touchdown effort last Sunday led Dallas to a 35-27 victory in Detroit."The pa sing game is rolling right now so you've got to ride it and ride it while it's hot," Elliott said, via ESPN's Todd Archer. "Hopefully, Ty Johnson Jersey it's rolling through the rest of the season and you don't need to run the ball. Not really looking at it that way, the receivers and Dak are rolling right now. When someone has the hot hand keep giving them the ball."Elliott eventually regarding his reduced statistics."That's what a good teammate does," Elliott said when asked about supporting Prescott and the pa sing game, via ESPN's Ed Werder. "You guys kind of make me feel awkward, like I'm supposed to be pi sed because I had 40 yards and we won a football game. I don't know. I don't really want to get into it any more."

Smith and Dorsett, along with piling up big stats, are in the Hall of Fame largely because of their roles on Super Bowl winning teams. As a rookie, Dorsett proved to be the mi sing piece of the Cowboys' Super Bowl puzzle Hamsah Nasirildeen Jersey during the 1977 season. Fifteen years later, Smith became the first rushing champion to win a Super Bowl. Smith and Dorsett were complemented by dominant defenses and Hall of Fame quarterbacks, facts that are not lost on Elliott, who is hoping for continued succe s from Prescott and his defensive teammates moving forward.
