Ezekiel Elliott Reveals Two-Word Nickname for Cooper Rush
While posting about his quarterback, Elliott revealed the nickname he uses for Rush: “Cooper Clutch.”
Rush did come up clutch on Monday night as he lifted Dallas to a winning record (2-1) and handed his briefly former team, the Giants, their first loss of the season.
Elliott scored one touchdown in the game, allowing the Cowboys to tie the Giants at 13 late in the third quarter. Rush led the Cowboys on a second consecutive scoring drive, allowing them to take the lead at the end of the fourth quarter.
During those two drives, Rush completed 12 of 13 passes for 129 yards. By the end of the game, the quarterback finished with 21 completions in 31 attempts for 215 yards.
Rush now has won three consecutive games as the Cowboys’ starter, with two of the wins coming this season. He was also the one who led Dallas to victory over Minnesota in Week 8. Rush is currently playing in the place of Dak Preston, who is recovering from a thumb fracture sustained in Week 1.
