Since he entered the NFL in 2016, Ezekiel Elliott has 4,836 rushing yards to lead the league.

If he can reach 164 rushing yards against Detroit, he’ll be the fifth player with at least 5,000 rushing yards in 50 career games, joining Eric Dickerson, Earl Campbell, Jim Brown and Terrell Davis, all members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Elliott and the Cowboys, however, had their ground attack humbled last week in a loss to Minnesota. He had only 47 rushing yards, the fewest of his career with 20 or more carries.

The success of quarterback Dak Prescott against the Vikings helped the Cowboys stay in the league lead in total yards.
