Ezekiel Elliott is used to making people chase and tackle him. At the Pro Bowl on Sunday, the tables were turned.
No, Elliott didn’t line up on defense at the NFL all-star affair. But he did look like a formidable linebacker. When a fan decided to run across the field during a break in play, Elliott brought him down with a textbook tackle.

So in addition to making a great running back, Elliott has the makings of a solid security guard.
In the game itself — Elliott’s first Pro Bowl — the Cowboys’ rookie ran for 20 yards on eight carries. During the regular season, the former Ohio State player was the NFL’s leading rusher with 1,631 yards.
