Fun Facts from 2019: 

  • Dak Prescott led the NFL in completions over 40 yards (16), which came after delivering 25 passes over 40 yards over his previous 48 games. He also set a career-high in passes over 20 yards (68 – 39 was his previous best).
  • Ezekiel Elliott only had four runs over 20 yards, which feel short of his success over his first three seasons (30 runs over 20 yards over 40 games).
  • The Cowboys’ WRs gained the second-most receiving yards (3,475) in the league with both Amari Cooper (79/1189/8) and Michael Gallop (66/1107/6) gaining over 1,000 yards. Cooper was a much better player at home (52/869/6) than away (27/320/3).
  • Dallas allowed only 46.2 percent of their completions to the WR position (171/2155/12 on 281 targets).
  • The Cowboys were one of three teams in the NFL to give over 1,000 yards receiving to the TE position (104/1016/6), but they gained only 9.77 yards per catch.
