Dallas Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb continued his outstanding performance streak on Sunday, dominating the New York Giants with 151 yards and a touchdown on 11 receptions. He further showcased his versatility by scoring a rushing touchdown with a 14-yard run in the Cowboys’ decisive 49-17 victory.
Lamb’s excellence was evident across the field, excelling in various roles such as over the middle, on the outside, and outrunning defensive backs. Expressing his confidence, Lamb declared himself the top receiver in the game, leaving no room for doubt and asserting, “If there is, I’ll see you again next week.”
This remarkable display marked Lamb’s third consecutive game with over ten catches and 150 or more receiving yards, a feat unmatched since at least 1970, according to NFL Research. Throughout his career, Lamb has accumulated seven games with ten or more catches and 100 or more yards, tying him with Justin Jefferson for the most such games since 2022.
Leading the NFL with 617 receiving yards since Week 6, Lamb has consistently delivered exceptional performances, even during Dallas’ bye week within that period. Despite facing double coverage, Lamb credited head coach Mike McCarthy for strategically moving him around and creating opportunities for success, turning the situation into a battle of wits between McCarthy and the opposing defensive coordinator.
Lamb’s 617 receiving yards in the past four games are unprecedented in Cowboys history since at least 1970, surpassing the previous record held by Hall of Famer Terrell Owens. Additionally, Lamb joined the ranks of Michael Irvin as the only Cowboys player to achieve 900 or more receiving yards in the first nine games of a season, further solidifying his status as a standout performer.
While Lamb’s individual success is undeniable, the Cowboys’ offensive prowess extends beyond him. In the latest game, Brandin Cooks exploded with 173 yards and a touchdown on nine receptions, while Michael Gallup contributed 70 yards and a score on two catches. With all three wideouts in sync and quarterback Dak Prescott performing at a high level, the Cowboys’ offense possesses formidable potential for the remainder of the 2023 season.
