Eric Dickerson set a rookie rushing record of 1,808 in 1983. Ezekiel “Zeke” Elliott is going to beat it.

The former Buckeye star, isn’t just set to beat the record, he is looking to destroy the record and make sure it is never broken again. He’s become the first rookie ever, in NFL history with a 130-plus yards in four consecutive games.

Elliott has an average of 117.2 yards per game and is on pace for 1,875 yards — soundly beating the above mentioned record but some are predicting even more.

“Yeah, I believe it. Two thousand or more. That’s my prediction,” Dez Bryant said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Zeke had some humble words for the Cowboys, sharing the praise with his offensive line.

“I’ll take my O-line over any guys in the league,” Elliott said. “I’ll take my fullback over any in the league. These guys just come out and execute so well week in and week out. They’re the reason why this running game is so successful.”
