Patriots' Ezekiel Elliott hurdles en route to TD, lead over Broncos



DENVER -- After a lackluster first half void of offensive fireworks, New England Patriots running back Ezekiel Elliott provided sparks early in the third quarter against the Denver Broncos on Sunday night.

Elliott's athletic hurdle and dash to the end zone for a diving touchdown is likely to be showing up on "SportsCenter's" Top 10 plays segment.

The Patriots were trailing 7-3 and facing second-and-10 from Denver's 15-yard line.

Elliott caught a short pass from quarterback Bailey Zappe -- who was in the shotgun and had dropped back to the 23-yard line -- at the 16 on the right side of the field.
