The Indianapolis Colts absolutely humbled the Dallas Cowboys this past Sunday, handing Jerry Jones' boys their first shutout defeat since 2003.
If not for Ezekiel Elliott eating up clock (25 total touches for 128 total yards), the loss could've been even worse for Dallas. And not only was Zeke the Cowboys' most productive player on the field, but he was also their most generous off the field.
On his way to the locker room, the running back noticed a young fan holding a sign that claimed it was his first Cowboys game. Elliott proceeded to sign his game-worn cleats and give them to the kid, sharing an unforgettable moment with him.
Class. Just pure class from the 23-year-old.
There is no doubt that Zeke was hurting from the blowout loss, but in that moment, he surely realized that some things are bigger than sports.
The action even caught the attention of Charlotte Jones Anderson, the Cowboys Executive VP and Chief Brand Officer:
On a day where all Elliott wanted to do was forget a dreadful team performance, he chose an act of kindness to ensure that a fan will never forget his.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is the power and beauty of sports in a nutshell.
