Ezekiel Elliott was all business after the Dallas Cowboys’ win over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. From the waist up, anyway.
The Cowboys running back had another excellent game, shredding the Packers’ league-leading run defense for 157 rushing yards on 28 carries in Dallas’ 30-16 win.
That performance earned Elliot a postgame interview with ESPN’s Ed Werder, but since the rookie had just played an NFL game, he decided to take a shortcut in dressing up for the national television hit.
Elliott would have slipped his half-wardobe past the public, too, if it wasn’t for meddling Cowboys safety Kavon Frazier.
Frazier’s clandestine photo revealed what the TV interview didn’t: Elliott wasn’t wearing any pants.
We don’t blame Elliott here; ESPN’s cameras shot the interview from the waist up, so why wear pants when you don’t have to? This practice also isn’t uncommon among TV reporters who want to keep some level of comfort.
That said, it’s still embarrassing when you’re caught in the act, and Sunday was no different.
At least his midriff was covered up, though.
