Ezekiel Elliott on leaky Steelers' defense: It 'parted like the Red Sea'

  • 8 years ago
Ezekiel Elliott gashed the Pittsburgh Steelers' defense Sunday for over 200 yards of total offense and three touchdowns to help the Dallas Cowboys win 35-30. Elliott, a leading candidate for Rookie of the Year along with teammate Dak Prescott, was responsible for the game-winning TD run late in the fourth quarter. "It [the Pittsburgh defense] parted like the Red Sea. All I had to do was run," The run came after Pittsburgh rallied to score quickly and take the lead on the drive. "We really were just trying to run the ball, run the time down and kick the game-winning field goal. But (the Steelers) ended up bringing the pressure. They lost the gap, and the O-line picked it up perfectly."
