‘Inspirational’ Ezekiel Elliott spurs Dallas to a 19-3 victory over the Giants
ARLINGTON, Tex. — Rarely short on words, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he didn’t want to talk much about Ezekiel Elliott. Until, of course, he did.
Despite the best efforts of the NFL and to the chagrin of the Giants, the embattled second-year running back was on the field Sunday night, helping his team make a statement as big as any on the season’s opening weekend. When it was finally over and the Cowboys were celebrating a decisive 19-3 win over a division rival, Jones three times said Elliott’s spot on the active roster was “inspirational” to the rest of the team.
