Elliott scored from eight yards out, putting Dallas ahead, 16-13. He finished with just 51 yards on 20 carries (2.5 ypc).

Dallas fans, coaches and players are expecting this to be the first of many touchdowns from the rookie this year, and hopefully years to come.

Dallas would eventually fall to New York, 20-19.
