Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Held in check in NFL debut

Elliott had 20 carries for 51 yards and a touchdown and caught one pass for one yard in Sunday's 20-19 loss to the Giants.

Elliott was held in check for most of the game, but was able to salvage things with an eight-yard touchdown in the third quarter. Meanwhile, Alfred Morris was more effective with his opportunities, rushing for 35 yards on seven carries. Neither Elliott nor Morris was involved as a pass catcher, and Lance Dunbar also wasn't used much Sunday, catching just one of two targets for 16 yards. Despite the disappointing debut, Elliott saw plenty of work and scored from inside the 10-yard line. It's possible we'll see a better performance from the rookie RB next week at Washington.
