Dak, Zeke Up For Weekly Award; Have Won A Combined 7 Times This Year

FRISCO, Texas – Another week, another victory – and another weekly award nomination for Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott.

The Cowboys' rookie quarterback and running back are among five nominees for Pepsi Rookie of the Week following a 26-20 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this past Sunday.

Elliott, the NFL's leading rusher through 14 games (1,551 yards), gained a season- and career-best 159 yards, a touchdown, and the most-publicized touchdown celebration of the season. He also set the franchise rookie record for rushing touchdowns in a season (13).

Prescott completed 32 of 36 passes for 279 yards and a rushing touchdown. He completed a perfect 11 of 11 passes in the second half, and his franchise-record 88.9 overall completion percentage ranked second in NFL history (minimum 30 attempts), trailing only Rich Gannon's 89.5 in 2002.

Elliott (three) and Prescott (four) have won the award a combined seven times in the first 14 weeks of the regular season.
