Ezekiel Elliott’s career game against the 49ers was just what the Cowboys needed

Ezekiel Elliott’s second NFL season was shaping up to be a disappointment, until he ran all over the 49ers on Sunday.

It came at the perfect time for the Cowboys. Dallas was coming off a two-game skid and needed to bounce back against the winless 49ers. The Cowboys were able to get the offense going again thanks to Elliott’s 219-yard, three-touchdown game.

Yes, Trubisky had an impressive 101.8 QB rating Sunday. But that one pass to Cohen accounted for most of his 107 yards passing. He was sacked four times, and most were because he was admittedly conservative.

The Carolina Panthers are next best team in that category with 24 sacks.

After a 2-yard run, Carson Wentz hurled a ball up for grabs that wasn’t close to his receiver and was easily intercepted. Considering the Eagles were backed up near their own goal line, his 57-yard heave wasn’t that bad.

Colts rookie safety Malik Hooker, who had energized the team’s secondary, is apparently done for the season after reportedly suffering a torn ACL and MCL in Sunday’s loss to the Jaguars.

“I hated London, hated it,” Britt said via ESPN’s Pat McManamon. “I hated it with a passion.”

DeShone Kizer isn’t worried about seeing the sights. Kizer won the starting job back for Week 8 after being benched multiple times for costly turnovers. He’s just focused on holding on to the starting job.49ers_119_a76617449c3552c0-150x150
