ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys were without their top two receivers for Thursday's game against the Las Vegas Raiders with CeeDee Lamb unavailable because of a concussion sustained Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs.
High expectations for the 2021 NFL season necessitated that the Kansas City Chiefs find new contributors on both sides of the ball. Some fresh faces have buoyed them through the first 11 weeks of their schedule that have seen the team go from contender to pretender and back again.
The Dallas Cowboys spread hope in every which way imaginable this past week, trying as they often do to will things they want into existence. It rarely works, and it didn’t this time either. Wideout CeeDee Lamb suffered a concussion at the end of the first half against Kansas City on Sunday, crashing the back of his head into the ground on an underthrown Dak Prescott pass that was intercepted by Chavarius Ward.
Pro Bowl Fan voting has been underway for a week now with 27 Kansas Chiefs players up for selection to the 2022 Pro Bowl. After just a week of voting, one Kansas City Chiefs player is among the top-3 in the league of fan voting.
It has become rare to wonder such a thing: “Are the Dallas Cowboys for real?” You ask it either with surprise (“Wait, are the Cowboys actually good again?”) or exasperation (“Will the drama and underachieving finally end?”). Depending on your rooting interests, your curiosity is intended for amusement or comfort.
