Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 100 yards against the Seattle Seahawks, but took the blame for the Dallas Cowboys' 24-13 loss on Sunday.
"I had a poor performance today," Elliott said. "Did well in the run game, but overall, I dropped the ball. That loss is on me."
Elliott finished with 127 yards on 16 carries, but he was flagged for an illegal touch of a forward pass that negated what would have been a 31-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter, and he fumbled in the fourth quarter with Dallas attempting a comeback.
"You can say whatever, but at the end of the day, when you've got the ball in your hands, that's the team in your hands," Elliott said. "Me being a leader on the team, me being a better player on this team, I got to do a better job of taking care of the ball. That cost us the game."
