Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott was greatly awaited by the fans. Though he didn't play poorly, the 'Boys first round pick wasn't exactly electrifying in his debut. He did score a touchdown, but only managed to get 51 yards on 20 carries for an abysmal 2.6 yards per carry.
Elliott commented on his performance after the game.
"I think I was average That's not why I was brought here to be average, so we've got a lot of work to get done", Elliott said according to Jon Machota of Dallas News.
The 21-year-old has a lot of work to do if he wants to live up to the hype created by his selection at 4th overall by the Cowboys last spring.
