The Dallas Cowboys are looking to put their best foot forward on Monday night.
They travel to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers looking for their first playoff win since 2018.
Dallas needs to have success on offense in this game.
They are coming off their worst performance of the year in Week 18.
So every offensive player should be plenty motivated to have success.
But, two players in particular need to get the ball in plenty.
With everything on the line, here are the two players the Cowboys should feed all game Monday.
1. Tony Pollard, Running Back
This should be a game where Tony Pollard is featured in the backfield for the Cowboys.
Pollard is one of the most explosive players in football, and the Cowboys will need to run the ball well on Monday.

Tampa Bay is giving up 120.7 yards per game, so there should be room for success for Dallas’ offense.
Pollard is fifth in the NFL in yards per touch this season with 5.9 yards.
He is also fourth in breakaway run rate at 8.8%.
There should be no reason Pollard does not see 15-20 touches in this game.
2. CeeDee Lamb, Wide Receiver
The best player on the Cowboys’ offense is wide receiver CeeDee Lamb.
In his first season as WR1 of the Cowboys, Lamb has been sensational.
He caught 107 passes for 1,359 yards and nine touchdowns.
Dak to CeeDee! @DallasCowboys on the board.

Lamb has been elite after the catch as well, so Dallas needs to get him the ball in space.
His 474 yards after catch this season ranked ninth in the league.
Expect Lamb to be used all over the field, and make a massive impact on the game Monday night.
