Rush­ing record in reach for El­liott

Sunday Sports - - SPORTS -

While the NFL and reps for Dal­las run­ning back Ezekiel El­liott (pic­tured)

con­tinue to duke it out in court over his six-game sus­pen­sion for do­mes­tic vi­o­lence, he’s still al­lowed to play.

And if “Zeke” should rush for at least 80 yards in Denver on Sun­day, he’ll have done that in 16 con­sec­u­tive games, dat­ing back to his rookie sea­son.

Ac­cord­ing to Cow­boys broad­caster and ex-NFL quar­ter­back Babe Laufen­berg, via ProFoot­bal­, that would be an NFL record. El­liott cur­rently is tied with Mar­cus Allen, who ran for 80plus in 15 straight games be­tween the 1985 and 1986 sea­sons with the Los An­ge­les Raiders.
