With the Christmas holiday and so much good service going on, the NFL would be foolish to level a major fine at Ezekiel Elliott for being hilarious.
Elliott celebrated a 2-yard touchdown run in the second quarter against the Bucs, leaped into one of the large Salvation Army red kettles that sits beyond the end zone, pretending to play hide-and-seek.
“That bucket’s just sitting right there by the end zone,” Elliott said. “It’s only right someone jumps in it.”
Elliott says he expects the league to fine him, but Jerry Jones is prepared to call the NFL’s bluff.
Ezekiel Elliott says he expects a fine from the NFL & he will match whatever fine the he gets & donate it to the SalvationArmyUS. #Respect

“There’s no question that was the divine touch from up above,” Jones said. “They didn’t gain anything from it. They got the ball back on the 20, 80 yards away after being docked for that. I know that more people are aware of what the Salvation Army was when Zeke jumped in there than maybe any other way we could do it. My dream would be for the NFL to really fine me a lot of money, and I’ll take them to the Supreme Court, and we’ll get the Salvation Army more attention than anybody can get them. So let’s go.”

It looks like Jerry will be taking care of that fine!
