The Dallas Cowboys were well within range for a winning field goal from Dan Bailey against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but Ezekiel Elliott had other ideas.

The rookie broke through from 32 yards out to put the Cowboys up in the final seconds.

Did the Steelers’ defense just think that a run was not possible? As great as Elliott is, that run was way too easy for him.

Dallas was trailing because of a fantastic play from Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown that put Pittsburgh up in the final minutes (watch here).

The 35-30 score stood as the final in what was been arguably the best game of the NFL season. Elliott finished the day with 114 yards rushing on 21 carries with two touchdowns. He added 95 receiving yards on two touchdowns with another score (watch here).
