LeBron James calls Ezekiel Elliott the MVP after monster game

The Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers faced off at Heinz Field today in a game that was almost certainly the best we have seen in 2016 with drama and great play to spare between both sides.

While both teams played well, with Dak Prescott and Ben Roethlisberger barely putting a foot wrong all game, the undoubted star of the show was the Cowboys rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott, who ran the show. 

The former Ohio State star seems to be a lock for Rookie of the Year, but LeBron James thinks he should be in the running for a much bigger prize.

Taking to his personal twitter account after the game, the Cleveland Cavaliers star - who just so happens to be a lifelong Cowboys fan - piped up and tweeted out about Elliott potentially being an MVP candidate.

According to King James, it looks like Elliott is now an MVP candidate after carrying the Cowboys to an eighth consecutive win with a 209-yard, three touchdown performance against the Steelers.

That's just ridiculous stats from a rookie any way you look at it. While some were questioning the choice of selecting a running back with the fourth pick in the most recent draft, Jerry Jones and co will be incredibly happy with their man.

By the end of the season, Elliott may well have broken multiple records, including Eric Dickerson's mark of rushing yards by a rookie - which is undoubtedly in Zeke's sights.
