Ezekiel Elliott breaks the Steelers' hearts with 32-yard game-winning TD

Zeke was fantastic on Sunday.

Ezekiel Elliott broke free to score a game-winning touchdown over the Steelers with nine second remaining in Sunday’s game, giving the Cowboys a 35-30 lead after they had given it up just 30 seconds earlier on a fake spike.

The Steelers appeared to make a game-winning play when Ben Roethlisberger connected with Antonio Brown. Elliott was spectacular on the day, however, and made the biggest play of the game, breaking free, untouched, to the end zone for a 32-yard score.

The play left the Steelers just nine seconds to make a miracle happen. After moving the ball out to their own 36-yard line, their last-gasp play ended when Brown was pushed out of bounds at the Dallas 20-yard line.

Elliott was the star of the game, racking up 209 total yards, including 114 yards rushing, and three total touchdowns. He also scored on a sensational 83-yard catch-and-run off a screen pass earlier in the game.
