If you follow Ezekiel Elliott on his social media, you have a good idea of his love for his dog, Ace. He has been very vocal of his love for his pet and he wants to share this feeling with the people of Texas. Read

After returning from Green Bay, Elliott spent his day off at Dallas’ SPCA of Texas where he sponsored a $21 "Run to the Shelter" pet adoption day. For each pet that was adopted on Monday, he covered the difference of the cost after the adopting family paid their $21. Read

135 people came out and in total 48 pets were adopted and sent home to new families. The surprising part for most participants was the fact that Ezekiel Elliott was actually present to be there and see the pets off with their new families.

The Cowboys rookie duo, Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott, have already been making plenty of history together on the field, setting several records and leading the team to a four-game winning streak. Their latest record of being the first rookies with 1,000 pass yards and 500 rush yards in the first five games has now put them in the Pro Football Hall of Fame to be remembered by all. No they aren’t ready for their busts yet but their jerseys are now on display in Canton, Ohio. Read

On Sunday the Green Bay Packers will present Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre with his official Hall of Fame ring. The three-time NFL Most Valuable Player will be present to witness Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott in action, and Favre sang his praises yesterday in an interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio. Read

"It's a little bit of everything -- pocket, bootleg, down the field, short screens -- and just the poise with which he has carried himself and the accuracy which he has shown is incredible, and the composure," Favre said. "And I probably, like most people [wonder] can he continue this week in and week out? And I know it is very early into his young career, but I have to admit I am extremely impressed at the way he has played." Read

Favre also had an attention-grabbing response when asked how Tony Romo should handle his return from his injury, boldly suggesting the Cowboys ride the rookie’s hot hand. Read

"I try to put myself in Tony's shoes,” Favre said. “I'm sure Tony wants to play. I mean, he doesn't want to get injured, he wants to be productive, but you have to look at the dynamics right now. And [the Cowboys] really are hitting on all cylinders. So, this is hypothetically thinking, if you are Tony you say, 'You know what, as much as I want to play, I don't want to press the issue.' I want to play but I'm going to let it play out right now and it is probably better if Dak starts struggling and then they bring me in rather than they put me in and then all of a sudden we're not hitting on all cylinders and everyone's like, 'Ah, they should have got rid of Tony, blah, blah.' ... I'm not saying that you tell [Jason] Garrett or Jerry Jones, 'Look, I don't want to play.' I think, you want to play but I don't want to mess up the dynamics of the team. If we get to a point where we're struggling, then it is time for me to come in. Now, I know that's a hard thing to do. ... I just think you are better if you wait until you are really needed. And I mean no disrespect whatsoever to Tony." Read

The Cowboys improved their record to 4-1 last Sunday after an impressive win over the Cincinnati Bengals. The game was pretty much sealed after the Cowboys held a 28-0 lead heading into the fourth quarter. The Bengals were able to score two touchdowns in the fourth, but the 28-point deficit was just too much for the former Dallas area quarterback, Andy Dalton, to overcome. The strong offensive and defensive play by the Cowboys was enough to move them solidly inside the top 10 in the Week 6 NFL power rankings. Read
