DOM CAPERS ON THE COWBOYS' RUSHING GAME: "Well, they’re obviously No. 1 in the league. I think they’re averaging 155 yards a game rushing, so you don’t have to say much more than that. We’ve played these guys a lot recently and, of course, they’ve added Elliott, who’s got real ability because he’s strong and can break tackles and yet he’s got breakaway speed. You combine that with their offensive line, they’re very efficient with their run game. They’re physical. That’s the first thing you look at when you look at the Cowboys’ offense is their ability to run the ball."
