Sure, the Cowboys missed Ezekiel Elliott on Sunday.
They missed LT Tyron Smith a whole lot more, though.
The absences of Sean Lee and Dan Bailey arguably loomed larger than Elliott's on Sunday, too.
Dak Prescott was sacked eight times in Dallas' noncompetitive 27-7 loss in Atlanta, where Smith's replacement, Chaz Green, served as a turnstile in Falcons DE Adrian Clayborn's historic afternoon (six sacks, one shy of matching late Hall of Famer Derrick Johnson's single-game NFL record).
Prescott, who lost two fumbles and was clearly out of sorts due to the constant rush, had never been sacked more than four times in a game, and was taken down just 10 total times in Dallas' first eight 2017 outings.
