Video: Cowboys’ Ezekiel Elliott cuts down Rams lead with touchdown in the third quarter

Ezekiel Elliott

With the season on the line for the Dallas Cowboys, Dak Prescott and Co. put together their most important drive of the year in the Divisional Round against the Los Angeles Rams, scoring a touchdown and then punching in a two-point conversion to make it a one-score game.

First, Michael Gallup made this spectacular 44-yard catch to put the Cowboys in the red zone:

Then, Ezekiel Elliott pounded in a four-yard touchdown to finish off the drive:

This may have been the Cowboys’ best drive of the game, as they had missed several opportunities prior.

For Gallup, it was just the latest big play in what has been a very impressive rookie campaign, as he hauled in 33 receptions for 507 yards and two touchdowns this season and followed that up with a big touchdown grab in Dallas’ Wild Card Round win over the Seattle Seahawks last weekend.

Gallup, who played his collegiate football at Colorado State University, was selected by the Cowboys in the third round (81st pick overall) of the NFL Draft back in the spring.

Prior to the touchdown, Elliott had been struggling, as the Rams’ defense has been doing a great job of bottling him up before he can hit any holes or make any cuts.

Last week, Elliott gashed the Seahawks’ defense for 137 yards and a touchdown. On the year overall, the 23-year-old led the league with 1,434 yards while also scoring six touchdowns, averaging 4.7 yards per carry. In addition, he hauled in 77 receptions for 567 yards and three scores.
