WATCH: Ezekiel Elliott caps off monster day with game-winning touchdown
Ezekiel Elliott is doing things that few have ever done before.
On Sunday, he became the third rookie in NFL history to reach 1,000 yards rushing through nine games. That joined a club that includes only Adrian Peterson and Eric Dickerson.
How did he do it? By scoring on a game-winning 32-yard touchdown run to stun the Pittsburgh Steelers:

That capped off an incredible day for the former Ohio State tailback. He eclipsed over 200 yards from scrimmage and finished with a career-high three touchdowns. He also had a career-long 83-yard touchdown catch.
Incredibly, Elliott is still in good shape to threaten Dickerson’s rookie rushing record of 1,808 yards. Elliott, thanks to his monster finish, is at 1,001 with seven games to play.
And with another impressive victory, Elliott certainly has to be in the MVP discussion.
