Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott says he'll get 200 yards in his Week 16 return game against the Seattle Seahawks. [[459650663,R]]

This comes from a TMZ video where former SMU and NFL running back Eric Dickerson said he's got a bet with Elliott about his upcoming return.

If Elliott gets 200 yards, Dickerson, who holds the NFL's single season rushing record with 2,105 yards, will give Elliott one of his special jerseys and he'll wear an Elliott jersey on the air sometime.

If Elliott fails to reach the number, he'll turn over his game jersey to Dickerson.

Elliott rejoined the Cowboys this week after serving a six-game suspension for allegations of domestic violence. The first game Elliott can take part in is Sunday's Week 16 match-up against the Seattle Seahawks.

The 200 yards number isn't crazy as long as it's not all on the ground -- Zeke has never hit 200 on the ground. However, in Week 7, Elliott went off for 147 yards on the ground and another 72 through the air -- a total of 219 yards.

Elliott's eclipsed the 200 number once before, in Week 15 of his rookie season when he pounded-out 159 yards on the ground and added another 42 through the air for a total of 201 yards.

The Seahawks' defense is giving up, on average, 329 yards per game this season.

We're pulling for you Zeke ...
