Without running back Ezekiel Elliott for the first time this season, the Dallas Cowboys struggled to get anything going against the Atlanta Falcons. Dallas might be without Elliott's services for a while, and if this game was any indication, the team's season is over. But Dallas still has Pro-Bowler Dak Prescott, who led this team to the playoffs last year. Having Elliott would've helped, but the Cowboys don't need him to be successful. What do you think? 🏈

Dallas Cowboys fans got their first look at what life is like without Ezekiel Elliott. It is not pretty. 

The team got destroyed by the Atlanta Falcons 27-7, allowing eight sacks and barely stopping the Falcons' balanced attack. Without Elliott setting up Prescott and keeping the chains moving, the team lost. And it doesn't get any easier. The team faces the Philadelphia Eagles, Los Angeles Chargers, Washington Redskins, and New York Giants the next four weeks without Elliott. 

Atlanta wasn't having the best season coming into the game against Dallas and still made the Cowboys look silly. They will continue to struggle and lose without their star running back.

There are 52 other guys on the Dallas Cowboys. While Elliott is an important piece, he is not the only piece who can make the team successful. The Cowboys still have Pro-Bowl quarterback Dak Prescott to lean on, and wide receiver Dez Bryant ready to explode. 

The Cowboys are having to make adjustments on the fly, which didn't result in a win against the Falcons. But with multiple below .500 teams coming up with Elliott gone, the Cowboys still have a chance to tread water before their star running back returns. Once that happens, they will be right in the middle of the playoff race. The season is far from over.
