Cincinnati Bengals Film Breakdown: Germaine Pratt is Evolving Into a Star

With offense in season-long rut, Broncos defense forced to answer new questions about own failures
Part of the theme did not change: The Broncos' last two losses again included a lack of production from the league's worst scoring offense. But instead of being able to trust their defense to get one more stop and another opportunity for Russell Wilson and Co. -- regardless of whether it was deserved -- the Broncos faltered on both sides of the ball, allowing Tennessee to overcome a 10-0 deficit in Week 10 and giving up a walk-off touchdown to the Raiders' Davante Adams on Sunday.

RB Index, Week 12: Cowboys have perfect blueprint for maximizing Ezekiel Elliott, Tony Pollard
What makes this tandem so special is the combination of styles. Elliott, 27, is the tough, physical rusher who thrives in short-yardage and goal-line situations at this stage of his career, while Pollard, 25, is an explosive playmaker in both the run and pass games. Having this pair healthy allows each to stay fresh throughout the duration of a game and forces the Cowboys to be balanced. In the loss to Green Bay, when the Cowboys were still without Zeke, Pollard performed well in the run game (22/115/1), but they struggled to close out the game down the stretch.
