Dak Prescott sported a pastel bow tie, a natty suit and a confident smile as he emerged from the Dallas Cowboy locker room.
In fact, Prescott and Elliott have done something that the National Football League has never seen out of rookie quarterback and running back teammates.
Jones said that Romo is healed from the back injury he sustained in the preseason, though the Cowboys haven't put a timetable on his return.
Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott once again carried the load in Dallas 28-14 thumping of the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday afternoon at AT&T Stadium. They've become the norm.
"You watch that film from week one and you watch me now it looks like two different backs", Elliott said after the game. "To have Dak playing at the level he is, and know that Tony is repaired". "You're supposed to get better as the season goes on".
"Zeke is a monster, like a real-life monster", Cowboys receiver Terrance Williams said, via the Dallas Morning News. IF Prescott manages to lead the Cowboys to a victory at Lambeau Field Sunday, there will be tremendous fan pressure on Jerry Jones and Jason Garrett to leave the hot-handed Prescott in the driver's seat. Each solid performance by Prescott. He missed four games as a rookie in 2012 because of a broken ankle. "Just disappointing in how we played".
"They was better than I thought", Jones said, per Jori Epstein of The Dallas Morning News. The Bengals were held to their fewest points and second-lowest yardage total (345) this season. There were however two separate plays that I think tied for this category.
"He's doing everything we ask him to do and he showed it today", said quarterback Andy Dalton". "That's what we've got to do". Without Bryant, Prescott will have not over-the-top target against a strong Bengals defense.

Apart from Ashwin, left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja was the only other successful bowler among the Indians with figures of 1/48. Martin Guptill was unfortunately run out as Ashwin fielded the ball of his own bowling and it went on to hit the stumps.
In Sunday's convincing win, Prescott completed 18 of 24 passes for 227 yards and one touchdown. Giovani Bernard had nine rushes for 50 yards as the Bengals' offensive line struggled to keep contain.
Also inactive for the Cowboys are starting cornerback Orlando Scandrick, quarterback Tony Romo, running back Lance Dunbar, tackle Chaz Green, running back Darius Jackson and defensive end David Irving.
But Prescott has flashed the decision-making of a vet. Twenty-four passes without an interception.
And there is little argument his ability to use his legs gives the offense a dimension they no longer have with Romo. That record was set by Tom Brady in his second season.
To say Prescott has not only survived but thrived would be the understatement of the season.
"It's a challenge for every quarterback", Garrett said.
The second play was when Dak Prescott was stripped of the ball, which was eventually recovered by the Cincinnati Bengals. And everybody is coming to get it. "We haven't played good enough three times out and we lost". Cincinnati is still trying to establish an identity on offense under first-year coordinator Ken Zampese.
