Zeke taking one for the team

Ezekiel Elliott had more than 100 yards rushing in a game for the first time this season, but the Dallas Cowboys running back took the blame for a 24-13 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

Elliott finished with 127 yards on 16 carries, and his 7.9 yards per rush were the second-best of his career in a game, but he was flagged for an illegal touch of a forward pass that negated what would have been a 31-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter, and he fumbled in the fourth quarter with the Cowboys attempting a comeback.

"I had no idea [I was out of bounds]," Elliott said. "That's on me. I've got to have better awareness of the sideline. That's it."

"You can say whatever, but at the end of the day, when you've got the ball in your hands, that's the team in your hands," Elliott said. "Me being a leader on the team, me being a better player on this team, I got to do a better job of taking care of the ball. That cost us the game."

Zeke is the best player on the Cowboys roster. The problem starts with the receivers, and then Dak. No pass game, no play action, no big pass plays for Dak. The Cowboys can sure you Dez Bryant right about now.
