We all know that the NFL is a quarterback driven league right? The QBs get the endorsements, they get the limelight, the press and a majority of the accolades. They also get protected by most of the new rules being put together and there has also been a push to up their production through the way the game is played. Despite all that, the trend in 2017 in the NFL is to recapture the ground game.
For the last decade, the NFL has fueled its high point, passing fancy agenda but what has withstood the test of time is that a good ground game can get you through the rigors of the late season, playoffs and win you a Super Bowl. Throwing the ball around the yard may excite fans and make fantasy geeks giddy. However, it has not been lost on many a NFL team that the Dallas Cowboys dominated the 2016 regular season by unleashing the most prolific ground attack in the league. It seems Zeke Elliott and the boys were what finally made the league, at large, open their eyes.
