CeeDee Lamb stakes claim as top receiver in NFL


ARLINGTON, Texas — Another game, another huge performance for Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb who hauled in 11 receptions for 151 yards and 1 touchdown in a 49-17 rout of the New York Giants in front of the home crowd at AT&T Stadium.

Lamb's big day moves his historic streak of consecutive 150-plus-yard, 10-reception games to three, setting an NFL record in the Super Bowl era. His performance has his confidence high going into the back half of the regular season schedule, as he sees his streak as his way of putting the league on notice.

"I'm one of them ones. I'm a top receiver in this game," Lamb said confidently postgame. "There's no question about it. If there is, I'll see you again next week."

While he was riding high after the game, he was also quick to delve out credit to Dak Prescott, the offensive line and his fellow receivers who he says has allowed him to play as free as he has been in the last month.

"It's amazing, especially when you come out with the dub," he said about his performance. "Shoutout to the guys. O-line holding up, Dak feeding me, all of the receivers opening it up for me. It's a collective group. We're staying blessed, staying humble about it."

Despite continuous strategizing by opposing defenses to control him in the receiving game either by doubling or bracketing, Lamb gives credit to offensive play-caller Mike McCarthy for keeping him on the move and disrupting opposing gameplans.

"They're definitely trying to double me, but [McCarthy] is doing a great job of moving me around and putting me in motion, lining me up on the outside," Lamb said. "I guess you can't get a beat. It's Mike versus the DC at this point."

The high offensive production didn't stop with Lamb on Sunday, as the offense's collective 640 total yards were the second-most in a game in franchise history and the 10th-most in a game in NFL history.

"We're hitting our stride," he said. "I'm happy with it this past month. We've been on a roll, we just gotta stay consistent and stay true to us."

It's easy for everyone on the outside to feel confident in Dallas' offense after the run it has been on lately, but can the same be said for everyone on the inside?

"Absolutely, and it's not stopping," Lamb said.
