What Had Happened Was: 11/14/16
Oh, you don’t know? We got you.
Sure, maybe the Pittsburgh Steelers wanted to allow Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott to gash them for a touchdown immediately following the two-minute warning during Sunday evening’s game. It would make sense, because it saved time on the clock for the Pittsburgh offense to match a Cowboys touchdown with one of their own, thus putting the Steelers ahead by one point with 45 seconds left in the fourth quarter.
BIG DAY FOR ZEKE!

For those who don’t believe lightning can strike twice, they should’ve watched the final two minutes of this game, because Elliott galloped through another gapping hole in the Steelers defense for the game-winning score. The Cowboys marched out of Heinz Field with a heart-racing 35-30 victory over Pittsburgh, and with their eight-game winning streak intact, matching the longest winning streak in team history.
Mr. @EzekielElliott everybody!

“It parted like the Red Sea,” said Elliott, who leads the league in rushing yards with 1,005. “All I had to do was run.”

Over the weekend, a University of Oklahoma student was suspended after creating a GroupMe chat with black freshmen from the University of Pennsylvania, and threatening to lynch them. A year and a half ago, Oklahoma suspended the Sigma Alpha Epsilon (SAE) fraternity after a racist video that came out with chapter members singing there’d never be a “n—– SAE,” and threatening to hang a black interest from a tree.
