CeeDee Lamb’s fan club has its newest member in Ezekiel Elliott
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb recently completed one of the best catches of the 2020 NFL season thus far, during their Week 11 tilt against the Minnesota Vikings. The difficulty of the catch eventually caught Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott in disbelief who proceeded to give praise for Lamb and his pass-catching abilities when speaking to the media Sunday night.
“He was on one today. Just running hard, trying to run guys over,” Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott said via Inside the Star. “He tried to run a D-lineman over and tried to run a linebacker over, which you don’t see from a smaller guy. He can also go out there and catch the ball. He had the crazy catch in the red zone. It was big. He’s just a helluva player. He’s young, he’s going to have a helluva career.”

The former Oklahoma Sooner also tallied 34 receiving yards on four receptions. Despite the meager performance, his touchdown was still pivotal for the Cowboys who found themselves engaging in a tight encounter with the Vikings.
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Andy Dalton immediately made his presence felt after a two-game absence and generated 203 passing yards on 22-of-32 passes completed along with three passing touchdowns for his team.
A 15-point scoring outbreak in the final frame ultimately lifted America’s Team to snag a 31-28 victory which halted the Vikings’ previous three-game winning streak. The Cowboys eventually improved to a 3-7 record while the Minnesota-based squad dropped back to 4-6 standing.
Despite settling in the bottom spot of the NFC East, the Cowboys will still aim to jockey for the top spot amid the stiff competition as they continue to turn to CeeDee Lamb’s contributions for their coming games. With the NFC East as weak as it is, every team in the division still has a shot to make the playoffs.
