For those counting at home — and also those counting in the offices of Cowboys headquarters at the Star — Kellen Moore called 28 run plays in Dallas’ season opener.

The Cowboys offensive coordinator knows what you’re thinking: His team sure didn’t run the ball 28 times in the 31-29 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. So how’d they end up attempting 58 passes to 18 carries?

Quarterback Dak Prescott checked out of 12 run calls, Moore said.

“Those opportunities presented itself. I love that Dak took them,” Moore said Monday. “As the season goes, it’s a long season. Different matchups, different defensive schemes.

“We’re going to need Zeke to pound it.”

Cowboys fans, and those looking at the six-year, $90 million extension Ezekiel Elliott signed in 2019, can relax.
