Ezekiel Elliott to remain the 'focal point' of Cowboys' offense?
Owner Jerry Jones doubled down on Dallas’ reliance on Elliott Saturday, saying that he “has to be the focus” of the Cowboys’ run game via NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Tyreek Hill: Defenses will be 'scared' of Dolphins' one-two punch at wideout
Hill could be correct in assuming that opposing defenses will be fearful lining up against the two speedsters. Hill has been one of the best receivers in the NFL during his six-year career. A six-time Pro Bowler and three-time First-Team All-Pro, the 28-year-old caught a career-high 111 passes for 1,239 yards and nine touchdowns last season. Waddle had a solid rookie campaign for the Dolphins in 2021 with 104 receptions for 1,015 yards and six touchdowns.If Tagovailoa lives up to the praise that Hill has showered him with, Hill and Waddle could be a scary duo this season.
Cook remains in jail on no bond. He has not entered a plea to the charge against him.

Trubisky may prove to be a solid bridge option at the position, but Pickett is hoped to become the long-term successor to retired future Hall of Famer Ben Roethlisberger.
