Ezekiel Elliott is living up to the hype.
The No. 4 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft is coming off of the best game of his career. The Dallas Cowboys rookie running back gashed the Green Bay Packers defense for a career-high 157 yards.
To celebrate the biggest game of his professional career to date, Elliott held a no-pants party for himself in the locker room.
Elliott even conducted an interview with ESPN without his pants.
But hey, that’s the kind of thing you can get away with when you lead the NFL in rushing yards through six weeks.

Through six games this season, Elliott has an impressive total of 703 yards and five touchdowns. Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy is the second-leading rusher in the NFL with 587 yards.
If Elliot doesn’t slow down as the season continues, he could very well finish his rookie campaign by setting a new standard for first-year players.
