Ezekiel Elliott is expecting the Dallas Cowboys to run the ball well against the Las Vegas Raiders on Thanksgiving.

The Cowboys will be without Amari Cooper (COVID) and could also see CeeDee Lamb (concussion) sidelined.

"I think running the football has to be important to us," Elliott said. "I think it helps this offense. We're a better football team when we can run it well. I think it will be point for us Thursday to get that run game going."
