Broncos shut down Elliott in Sunday win

(TSX / STATS) -- ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- By the end of the third quarter Sunday, it was clear the Denver Broncos had done something that no one had done to the Dallas Cowboys since they drafted Ezekiel Elliott in 2016: They had made him and the Cowboys' running game a complete non-factor.

Frustration set in, to the point where Elliott simply stood in place after Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. intercepted Dak Prescott's pass after the game got out of hand. Elliott was on his way to a career-low eight yards on nine carries -- 43 yards below his previous career-low figure, which came in his first pro game.

Prescott wound up throwing the football 50 times, and by the end of the Broncos' 42-17 win over Dallas, the Cowboys had run pass plays on 79 percent of their snaps.
