Minnesota Vikings at Dallas Cowboys NFL Matchup
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Ezekiel Elliott doesn’t feel the need to declare himself the best running back in the NFL with the two-time rushing champion and the Dallas Cowboys set to face current leader Dalvin Cook and the Minnesota Vikings.
Two months after becoming the highest-paid back by ending a preseason-long holdout and signing a $90 million extension, Elliott is sixth in the rushing race with 741 yards, 153 behind Cook in one fewer game.
Elliott is also on one of his best rolls, looking to match a career best with a fourth straight 100-yard game at home against the Vikings (6-3) on Sunday night, the third straight prime-time game for the Cowboys (5-3).
”I think there have been running backs that have played better this year,” Elliott said.
And that suggestion doesn’t bother a two-time Pro Bowler who was an All-Pro as a rookie in 2016.
”It just kind of adds a little fuel to the fire,” said Elliott, whose 4,789 yards rushing since entering the league are almost 1,000 yards more than anyone else. ”I’ve got some more work to do, that’s all.”
Cook needs 106 yards to become Minnesota’s first 1,000-yard rusher since Adrian Peterson in 2015, when Peterson won the last of his three rushing titles for the Vikings.
