The Dallas Cowboys have a special matchup on deck Sunday, at least emotion-wise.
The fans will get to welcome Ezekiel Elliott back, who’ll be playing for the New England Patriots instead.
However, that doesn’t mean a thing for sports analyst Skip Bayless, who challenged HC Bill Belichick to “feed the beast” and give Zeke as many touches as he can handle in the showdown (via “Undisputed”).

Of course, Bayless is a diehard Cowboys fan, so he knows firsthand that his recent performance hasn’t been very impressive.
Elliott’s impact on the game diminished vastly over the past couple of years, struggling with injuries, inefficiency, and ceding plenty of ground to eventual replacement Tony Pollard.
The former first-round pick hasn’t made much of an impact early in his tenure in New England, but he should have plenty of motivation to show his former team what they’re missing right now.
In his heyday, Elliott was one of the most explosive and disruptive offensive forces in the league.
And even despite all the issues with fumbles and the lack of explosiveness he showed in the past couple of years, he was always a big threat in the end zone.
The Cowboys desperately need to make a statement and bounce back in a big way after losing to arguably the worst team in the NFL.
But the Patriots have their backs against the wall after dropping two out of three, and Elliott and Belichick would definitely love to play spoiler in their visit to Arlington.
