Perhaps the most incredible element of the opening score for the good guys was the celebration that the scorer, Ezekiel Elliott, did. Zeke very famously jumped in the Salvation Army kettle two years ago and on Thursday he upped the ante... literally.

Zeke donated $21 to the kettle, obviously to match his jersey number. It was one of those pre-planned celebrations which are always fantastic if executed properly.
The Salvation Army and Dallas Cowboys have long been partners so it’s really great to see Zeke supporting the cause when the moment is biggest and brightest. This celebration was fantastic and may indeed have topped his original kettle jump from 2016.
You can donate yourself by texting “kettles” to 91999 if you’d like. Kudos to Zeke for the creativity, sincerity, and getting into the endzone!
