Six Major Unknowns Heading into the NFL Regular Season

Less Than a Month Until the Season Opener…

By Sports Editor Kahlil Ellis

Believe it or not, football is almost back in action! The reigning Super Bowl champion New England Patriots are set to host the season opener against the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday, September 7th. However, there are still some major questions that will need to be answered over the last remaining weeks of the NFL off-season.

 

With star running back Ezekiel Elliott likely suspended the first six games of the regular season, will the Dallas Cowboys make the playoffs?

The Cowboys stud Ezekiel Elliott was recently suspended by the NFL for violating the league’s personal conduct policy after being accused of assaulting his ex-girlfriend. While Elliott is responding with an appeal, the Dallas Cowboys are forced to look ahead at the regular season without expecting contribution from perhaps their biggest offensive contributor. Last season, Elliott led the league in rushing with 1,631 yards on 322 carries and scored 15 rushing touchdowns. With or without him, will America’s favorite football team make the playoffs for the second consecutive season?
