The Dallas Cowboys were down early by the score of 12-3 on the road against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Needing a spark to avoid getting blown out, they looked to rookie Ezekiel Elliott.
And boy, did he deliver.
Catching the ball on a simple yet brilliantly executed screen pass, Elliott left Pittsburgh’s entire defense in the dust on an 83-yard romp for six.

After the extra point, Dallas was down by just two points, 12-10.
It was an electric play that clearly demonstrates the home-run hitting ability of the Cowboys rookie running back.
Elliott is a legitimate NFL MVP candidate at this point, and you can lock him up for the Offensive Rookie of the Year award, provided he stays healthy.
