One Missing Cowboy Could Negatively Impact Their Entire Offense
His loss means a lot to Dallas' offense

It’s often said that left tackles are the most important members of an NFL offense behind the quarterback position. Tyron Smith is a major part of what the Dallas Cowboys do offensively (he plows open running lanes for Ezekiel Elliott and gives Dak Prescott more time in the pocket), but will reportedly miss this week’s game against the Green Bay Packers.
As seen above, his absence could have a massive impact, especially after the team mustered just 10 points last week in a loss to the New Orleans Saints.
