Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott vs. Steelers LB Ryan Shazier: The Cowboys were interested in Ryan Shazier in the 2014 draft, but the Ohio State linebacker ended up in Pittsburgh. Two years later, the Cowboys landed another Buckeye they coveted in Ezekiel Elliott. Elliott is leading the NFL in rushing with 891 yards, but Shazier is a key part in the Steelers’ run defense that limited Baltimore to 50 yards on 29 carries last week.  — Drew Davison
