In the second half of the season, CeeDee Lamb has looked a lot like the No. 1 receiver needed by the Dallas Cowboys.
The third-year pro isn’t afraid to admit it took time to adjust to the role after the offseason trade of Amari Cooper in a cost-cutting move.
Lamb’s fifth 100-yard game in eight weeks in a 27-13 victory over shorthanded Tennessee leaves little question where the playoff-bound Cowboys will turn in the passing game as they try to advance deep in the postseason for the first time in 27 years.
"I’ve seen a lot of things as far as mentally just throughout a game, just understanding that if I’m going to make a play happen, I’m going to have to make that play," Lamb said. "I know my guys are going to make the play ... but when it comes to my opportunity, I have to step up."
Lamb tied his career high with 11 catches and had 100 yards against the Titans. The 2020 first-round pick is the third Dallas receiver to reach 100 receptions in a season with 102.
