CeeDee Lamb's big game against the Detroit Lions last Saturday night left me asking, "How in the world did he repeatedly get so wide open?"
Sure, Lamb's 13-catch, 227-yard performance included a 92-yard catch-and-run that was made possible by a defender who slipped and fell to the turf.
It was the NFL's longest offensive play this season and the second-longest reception in Dallas Cowboys history, trailing only a 95-yarder from the great Bob Hayes in 1963.
Lamb, on the other hand, frequently experienced various sorts of separation. And we've seen it for the most of the season.
"I just work at it," Lamb explained as he sat at his locker after the game."He ain't open enough for me!" exclaimed the Cowboys quarterback.
Prescott also mentioned the lengthy hours spent developing QB-WR connection. Or, as team owner and legendary hype man Jerry Jones described it, "the Aikman-Irvin thing, really shades of that." They're actually getting along."
Lamb made his own history on a night when so many Cowboys superstars, including Troy Aikman and Michael Irvin, were at JerryWorld to celebrate Jimmy Johnson's induction into the team's Ring of Honor.
He shattered Irvin's single-season Cowboys records for catches (111) and receiving yards (1,603), and he will enter the regular-season finale against Washington with an NFL-high 122 receptions.
