Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Gets into end zone in Week 13 win
Elliott managed 86 yards and scored a touchdown on 20 carries while also securing four of five targets for 19 yards in Thursday's 17-15 win over the Vikings. He also fumbled but recovered, and also had a second key recovery of a Dak Prescott fumbled snap late in the fourth quarter.
While it was a modest game by his lofty standards, Elliott was more than effective while getting into the end zone for the eighth time overall in the last five games. The rookie's rushing yardage total was actually his third lowest of the season, and least since he'd amassed 83 yards back in Week 2 versus the Redskins. However, Elliott continues to move the chains effectively behind his stellar offensive line, even on nights when he encounters some tough sledding against stingy fronts such as that of the Vikings'. He'll undoubtedly be counted on heavily in a pivotal Week 14 divisional showdown against the Giants.
