Ezekiel Elliott was impressed with fellow running back Tony Pollard on Sunday.
Pollard replaced Elliott, who is currently nursing a knee injury. He sat out last Sunday’s win against the Detroit Lions and was unable to practice last week.
Pollard rushed for 151 yards and three touchdowns on just 14 carries. The Bears defense had no answer for him or the rest of the Cowboys offense as they allowed 49 points in a 49-29 loss.
After the Cowboys’ win, Elliott raised an imaginary Lombardi Trophy in the air and confirmed that he didn’t care if he or Pollard led.
“All I care about is winning, and at the end of the season. I want to keep that Lombardi,” Elliott said, via Jori Epstein of Yahoo Sports. “We all have the same goal and that is for this team to be successful. It doesn’t matter to me or to him whether I do it or he does it.”
The Cowboys will need both running backs in their A game if they want to make it to the Super Bowl.
They also hope to have Elliott back for the Cowboys’ next game on Nov. 13 against the Green Bay Packers.
