The Dallas Cowboys are on a 10-game winning streak and there is no stopping them right now. Among the many stars who play for the team, Ezekiel Elliot and Dak Prescott are standing out.

However, the rumor mill suggests that Elliot and Prescott are given too much responsibility to the point that they may be overworked by the team. According to Oregon Live, Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott leads the league in rushing.

He also leads the league in carries. This may lead people to think that the rookie might be overworked at such a young age. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones does not think so.

Jones spoke to 105.3 radio saying, "Not at all. The more we can give Ezekiel the ball, the better. We're winning with that. We're winning by wearing them down on defense."

Elliott was able to rush for a league-leading 1,199 yards in their first 11 games. He has also carried the football 243 times and is averaging 22.1 carries a game, both league-highs.

Elliot also feels the same way. Even though he felt sore after playing against Baltimore, he was just happy to get the win. Elliot claimed he felt great, fresh and does not feel the soreness anymore during game time. "This game wasn't nearly as physical as the last one we played, so I think it was fine," he added.

On the other hand, there is Dak Prescott. In week 10 of the 2016 season, Prescott was able to break the record for the most consecutive pass attempts without an interception to start a career; he had 176 attempts. Patriots star Tom Brady owned the record at 162 attempts.

Do you think both players drove into the ground? Do you think both players are responsible for making the cowboys achieve their long winning streak and are just doing their best for the team? After all, they are both just rookies. Really good rookies.
