Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has taken the NFL by storm. Thirteen weeks into the season, the rookie speedster already has 12 rushing touchdowns and 1,285 yards, leading the league in both categories.
But Zeke isn’t just dominating other teams. He’s also dominating his own teammates.
Before the Cowboys’ Thursday night showdown with the Minnesota Vikings, a couple of Dallas players were messing around in the end zone. One of them threw a jump ball up in the air toward Elliott and wide receiver Dez Bryant.
Since Bryant is one of the league’s most dominant receivers, you would expect him to out-jump Elliott, but that wasn’t the case. The 6-foot running back beat the 6-foot-2 receiver, and the crowd lost it.
After the Cowboys won 17-15, Zeke posted the video to Twitter
, telling rookie quarterback Dak Prescott to throw him
the jump balls from now on.
The Cowboys are now 11-1, and much of their success is due to great team chemistry If they keep having fun, they might go deep into the playoffs.
