Cowboys Stud: CeeDee Lamb, Wide Receiver
With the offense in a hole early, they needed a spark and CeeDee Lamb gave that to them. The No. 1 wideout first drew a flag on third-and-11 to move the sticks. After Dak Prescott was sacked for the second time on the day, Lamb delivered again on second-and-17.
This time, he caught a short pass in the middle of the field and made his guy miss the tackle. From there, he marched to the sticks and was able to force his way forward while being tackled to give the offense another first down.
Lamb has made it no secret that he wants the ball more in order to help his team win and he backed that up with three quick catches for 26 yards on the opening drive. Jake Ferguson was the one who hauled in the touchdown reception, but they would have been punting on the opening possession if not for No. 88.
He was far from done on that drive as he opened the next series up with another 17-yard reception as well before hauling in two touchdown passes in the second quarter. First, he scored from 10 yards out and then found an opening in the end zone when Prescott had to scramble out of trouble for a 22-yard touchdown.
Lamb ended up with 12 receptions for 158 yards to go along with the two touchdowns. It was his best game of the season and continues to prove he's been right when asking for the ball to come his way more often.
Not only did he put up monster numbers but he also helped open the game up for others. Jake Ferguson had 47 yards on four catches and Brandin Cooks brought in three receptions for 49 yards and a touchdown.
