Cowboys rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott early in the third quarter against the Browns on Sunday had rushed for 73 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries. Don't take it personally, Cleveland. With his celebration after his first touchdown, the Ohio State product proved he still loves you.

Elliott, who entered Week 9 leading the NFL in rushing yards, scored his second touchdown of the day later in his return to the Buckeye state — an eight-yard rush in the third quarter.

As ESPN pointed out, Sunday's gam

e against the Browns became Elliott's second multi-score game of the season. His first came against Cincinnati.

Something about those Ohio teams for the rookie. The Browns, of course, could have drafted Elliott had they not traded away their first pick.

The Cowboys held a 28-10 lead over the Browns in the third quarter after Elliott's second score.
