How good has Ezekiel Elliott been to start his NFL career? Just look at the company he’s keeping when it comes to the league’s rushing records.
The Dallas Cowboys running back tied Hall of Fame legend Earl Campbell in Sunday’s loss to the Green Bay Packers by reaching 2,000 career rushing yards in his 20th game. Elliott had 116 yards on 29 carries to give him 2,024 in his career.
Only Eric Dickerson did it quicker in his first 18.

Elliott tied Herschel Walker among Cowboys’ all-time leaders with his ninth 100-yard rushing game. Hall of Famers Emmitt Smith (76) and Tony Dorsett (43) lead the list.
