In Pictures: Zeke’s Red Kettle Moment

Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott celebrated a touchdown by jumping into a large Salvation Army red kettle near the stands and was subsequently hit with a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for "using a prop" to celebrate. After the game, Elliott said he'll match any potential fine for the celebration with a donation to the Salvation Army.
