We’re talking about two kids who are: Pro Bowlers, MVP candidates, and at the center of the most valuable sports team in the world… who just happen to be NFC East Champs and the NFC’s top seed.
While there’s been a lot of victory for America’s Team over the last couple of days – shout out to the Philadelphia Eagles – the last time that we actually saw them play was last Sunday on Sunday Night Football against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It was a game that ended with a Dallas Cowboys victory – shocking – but there was a moment from within it that caught all of our attention (not Zeke’s kettle-leaping one).
Here you can see that at one point during the Bucs game Zeke asks Dak, “What do you want me to do?”. Dak tells him “Just block,” and Zeke takes it from there.
The likely-MVP-winning Ezekiel Elliott prides himself on his great blocking ability. He was an honorary “slob” while at The Ohio State University, an affectionate nickname given to the team’s offensive linemen.
In this video Zeke throws “two double pluses” and chirps that he wants to hear about that in meetings the following week. One of the big-time blocks that Zeke throws is on Tampa Bay’s Gerald McCoy, so it’s definitely something to brag about.
These are our Dallas Cowboys. Life is so sweet.
