Cowboys counting on young playmakers to improve offense

OXNARD, CA (KLTV) - Dez Bryant, Jason Witten and Demarco Murray have combined to score 110 touchdowns for the Cowboys. A talented trio that helped the Cowboys put up than 27 points per game last season. The Cowboys believe they can score even more in 2014, thanks to the help of a younger offensive trio.

"We have so many playmakers," said second year tight end Gavin Escobar.  "It's exciting all around. Everyone can make plays. I feel like we'll be really explosive."

Escobar and second year receiver Terrance Williams combined to score seven touchdowns in their rookie season. The two targets will be counted on much more in 2014.

"I'm just trying to be a good reliable guy," said Williams.  "Whenever Jason (Witten) or Dez (Bryant) get double teamed, Tony won't have to think twice about throwing me the ball. The more reliable I can be, that frees up Jason and Dez to do their jobs even better."

Third year running back Lance Dunbar has never found the end zone. Expect that to change this season. Dunbar was enjoying a career day against the Raiders in 2013, when he suffered a season ending knee surgery. Dunbar is ready to finish what he started.

"I was having one of the best games of my young career," said Dunbar.  "Injuries happen and you can't control it. The only thing that matters is what happens after that. I work toward that each and every day trying to get better."

With another trio of play makers, will there be enough footballs to go around? The Cowboys would like to find out.

"We've got a deep offense," said Escobar.  "Offensive line is solid. We've got a lot of explosive players. We can be as good as we want to be."
