Update, Jan. 30: Ezekiel Elliott's "feed me" gesture went from a source of laughter at season's start to his signature move by season's end. The 2016 NFL rushing titleholder used the eating gesture to note big-time first downs, his touchdowns and even his teammates' successes. Before long, teammates joined in while opponents used the move to mock Elliott.

"It's crazy," Elliott told ESPN ahead of the Pro Bowl. "It just shows you how much influence you can have. It's cool to see so many people doing it."

Elliot said he actually didn't coin the move.
