Countdown: Dan Reeves' Special Cowboys Legacy


As we count down to the start of a new season, we'll focus on the exact number of days before the Sept. 11 opener against the Bucs.

Today, we will continue with 30 days until the start of the season.

The Play: Sure, Emmitt Smith ran behind one of the greatest blocking units in NFL history, but not all his NFL-record 18,355 career rushing yards came easy. A perfect example: his rugged 30-yard touchdown run against the Atlanta Falcons in 1992, bouncing off multiple tacklers in the backfield before finding open turf down the right sideline for the score.

The 2022 season is getting closer and closer. For the next 100 days, we will count down to the Sept. 11 opener with a daily tribute to each number.
