DALLAS — The Dallas Cowboys featured one of the best offenses in football a season ago. In terms of points scored, no team was better than the offense in Dallas.

Still, there is another level for this offense to go. That includes becoming a more explosive and dynamic unit that puts more stress on defenses.

The Cowboys sat just outside the top-10 in explosive play rate, landing at No. 14 in 2021. Dallas was No. 12 in passing explosive play rate, but No. 17 in the category for the ground game.

Fortunately, there is a simple solution for the Dallas Cowboys to break into the top-10 and become an even bigger threat when having possession of the ball: Get the ball into the playmakers’ hands.

Simple solution makes Cowboys much more explosive.

To be more specific, get the ball to CeeDee Lamb and Tony Pollard more. Lamb is the Pro Bowl wideout set to be the team’s top target for the foreseeable future. Pollard is the dynamic back that splits time with Ezekiel Elliott in the backfield.

There have been positive reports regarding both Lamb and Pollard coming out of training camp. Quarterback Dak Prescott is excited about what the future holds for Lamb, while early indications point to Pollard having a larger role in the offense.

Both Lamb and Pollard are dynamic threats with the ball. The Pro Bowl wide receiver averaged just under 14 yards per reception in 2021, and Pollard averaged a career-best 6.2 yards from scrimmage last season.

It only makes sense for the Dallas Cowboys to increase the usage for both within the offense. That would make Prescott’s job that much easier, while also making the Cowboys much more difficult to defend.

The Dallas Cowboys will need players to step up with Amari Cooper and Cedrick Wilson off the roster. CeeDee Lamb and Tony Pollard are more than capable of making the Cowboys offense a bigger threat in the NFL.
