May 31, 2021 10:35AM CDT
The Dallas Cowboys of the early 1990s were some of the best teams in NFL history. Those teams, of course, featured the likes of Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, and Michael Irvin, a trio that would come to be known as “The Triplets.”
Nowadays, the nickname has become part of the NFL lexicon and is used to describe a team’s top quarterback, ball carrier, and pass catcher, as one might expect. Jared Dubin of CBS Sports ranked all 32 teams’ triplets, and the Cowboys are carrying the triplet tradition well, as the group of Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, and Amari Cooper finished third overall.
