2020 was a bit of a down year for Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, who had career-lows in most categories as the team went 6-10 and missed the playoffs.
But Elliott appears confident that the Cowboys offense will turn it around this year – and then some. Speaking to the media this week, Elliott said that offensive coordinator Kellen Moore has set the team’s goal to be the league’s top offense.
“In our first meeting, coach Kellen said our No. 1 goal this year is to be the No. 1 offense,” Elliott said, via ProFootballTalk.
It’s a bold goal, but not impossible to reach if they have all of their players healthy. They have a star quarterback in Dak Prescott, three extremely talented wide receivers with Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb, and Michael Gallup, and Elliott himself in the backfield.
The real obstacles are two-fold: Getting the offensive line back to what it was in 2018, and staying healthy.
Right now, the latter obstacle looms the largest.

Dak Prescott has not played a game in 10 months due to injuries and has been limited in practice because of a shoulder strain. Getting him back to the form he was in at the time of his injury will be a tough ask.
But if the Cowboys offense does get healthy, it can definitely be a top 10 unit, maybe even top five.
Will the Cowboys have the No. 1 offense in the league this year, or is Ezekiel Elliott being too bold here?
