The Cowboys lead the NFC East Cheap nfl Jerseys with an 8-1 record behind the rookie one-two punch of quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott. Elliott leads the NFL with 1,005 rushing yards, and Dallas averages 161.0 yards per game on the ground.

Harbaugh said stopping the run has always been a priority of Baltimore general manager Ozzie Newsome, a prep standout at Colbert County before starring at Alabama.
“Ozzie and I have had many conversations about how we want to play and who we want to be and how to get there,” Harbaugh said. “That is something that has been here for quite a while. I think Ozzie has always drafted toward big, physical guys up front. We have always had them, and we have them now. We have had our lulls at times, where we have not defended the run, but we have always wanted to get back and defend the run well. We do not want to have that problem.”
The Ravens have a 5-4 record, with two of the victories coming against the winless Cleveland Browns. Baltimore’s record would put them in the cellar of Dallas’ division.
