Ezekiel Elliott plows over Malcolm Jenkins
Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is a load for defenders to bring down when he has a head of steam and that was on full display in the first quarter of Sunday night's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
One play after a sack fumble gave the Cowboys the ball inside the Eagles' 20-yard line, Elliott dished out some punishment on a fellow former Ohio State standout in Malcolm Jenkins, plowing over the defensive back without so much as slowing down.
The full play can be seen in the video above.

The play was initially ruled a touchdown on the field, but it was reversed upon review as the officials ruled Elliott down just shy of the goal line. But one play later, Elliott capped off the drive with a one-yard touchdown run to give the Cowboys an early 14-0 lead over their division rivals.
A former four-star recruit out of John Burroughs School in St. Louis, Mo., Elliott was ranked as the No. 69 overall prospect and No. 5 all-purpose back in the country for the 2013 class, according to the 247Sports Composite. He was also the top-ranked player in Missouri.
After an outstanding three-year career in Columbus, he was selected by the Cowboys with the No. 4 overall in the 2016 NFL Draft.
