Steelers plan on stopping Ezekiel Elliot: ‘It’s important you have multiple guys hitting him’

The Pittsburgh Steelers have a clear idea on how to beat the Cowboys this Sunday, beat up rookie running back sensation Ezekiel Elliot.

The first year rock carrier leads the league in rushing and the Steelers know if they have any chance of beating Dallas, it starts with pounding their top offensive option.

“It’s important you have multiple guys hitting him, the hits accumulate on him where if he makes the first guy miss, you have two or three guys coming in to finish him off as well,” linebacker Arthur Moats said, via ESPN.

“I am not necessarily surprised by what I see,” coach Mike Tomlin said.

“I think that was very evident for all of those that looked at his Ohio State tape. He can run inside, outside, and he has great vision. He has great contact balance. He almost always falls forward. He has really good and natural hands. He takes pride in blitz pickup. He simply does all the things that encompasses the running back position extremely well. He does it like breathing. It’s probably second nature to him. He has probably always played that way. He is big in what they are doing. The offensive line is big. You put those two components together and that’s why they have the No. 1 rushing attack in football.”
