WATCH: Ezekiel Elliott soars for first NFL TD

Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott made a splash in his first NFL game with a touchdown in the third quarter.

Down by four to the New York Giants at the half, the Cowboys needed a lift.

Elliott supplied the fuel with this tremendous eight-yard run.

Showing off his patience, vision and burst, he found the best route and took off with a soaring leap towards the end zone for the score.

After the extra point, Dallas took a 16-13 lead over their NFC East rivals.
