Ezekiel Elliott has been just about everything the Dallas Cowboys could have hoped for since he arrived in Dallas from Ohio State. In fact, he's been so consistently good that he has helped the Cowboys lead the league in 100 yard rushing games since 2016, by a wide margin.

To give a little perspective, since the start of the 2016 season, the Cowboys have had 27 games in which they have had a 100-yard rusher. In those games, the team has a record of 23-4. The next closest competitor in this field is a tie between the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers, who are tied with 18.


It's no surprise that the Cowboys are having 100-yard games more often in wins, but that win percentage still stands out on this table, especially when combined with the sheer volume.

Elliott is healthy and ready for 2020 and as long as he continues to rush the rock like he has the Cowboys should be in for another winning season.
