Kid With 'Zeke Cleats' On His Christmas List Scores Early Present From Cowboys RB

Kids like Little Zeke Elliott tend to put the darndest things -- like car tires, $9,999, "pecks" and Ezekiel Elliott's cleats -- on their Christmas lists. Talk about putting Santa in a horrible position. Imagine the debt Santa would rack up if he came up with all the cash put on these Christmas lists. While we're talking about stress for Santa, imagine the sleepless nights for Old Saint Nick when he knows Little Zeke is asking for "Zeke's cleats," and the elves are complaining about the jolly fat man not following union shop overtime rules.

Put it this way, Santa has too much on his plate to start having the workshop pump out Zeke cleats to all the little Zekes out there. And don't get Santa started on how to knock "pecks" off Little Zeke's list.

The good news for Santa is that Little Zeke was at Sunday's Cowboys-Bengals game, and Ezekiel Elliott went ahead and knocked an item off the list -- Rhett left Paul Brown Stadium with Zeke's cleats.

Elliott, who rushed 12 times for 48 yards in Sunday's 30-7 blowout victory over the Bengals, has a history of giving his game cleats to kids. He has also used his cleats to raise money for causes such as domestic violence awareness and the SPCA.

Sunday, it was Rhett's turn to take home cleats. Now it's up to Mom and Dad to figure out how to knock "pecks" off his list. Good luck with that one.
